Edinburgh Fringe Preview: Mark Watson

I’m not quite sure why Mark Watson isn’t a bigger star. He is a classic, nervy, neurotic stand-up enraged by life's little things and also a master improvisor who is great at spontaneous crowd banter, sometimes doing it while standing in the crowd himself. Watson does like to shake things up a bit in his live shows. Apart from his now legendary marathon sets, he often pops up in the stalls. It’s not intimidating or the kind of thing to make your bum going all tight when he approaches. Watson is friendly and welcoming.

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – Mark Watson

Mark Watson is best known for his marathon comedy shows. His last one, for Comic Relief this year, lasted 27 hours and featured a fake goat, a man making models of Morph non-stop, another man writing ‘I am an idiot’ over and over again and much, much more. But Watson also does proper solo shows and very funny they are too. He is filming his latest show, Flaws, at the Bloomsbury Theatre on June 10 for DVD release. But in typical Watson fashion things cannot possibly be that simple.
