Mark Watson (UK) - one of the most talked about comedians in the UK is back with new questions.

On debut at the 2007 NZ International Comedy Festival Mark Watson became the fastest selling act in the history of The Classic, NZ’s home of live comedy. In fact his two week season was all but sold out before he even arrives. Mark Watson is a man who’s reputation precedes him wherever he goes.

On his 27th birthday, a religious evangelist asked Watson: “Can I briefly talk to you about the point of life?” His excitement at the prospect of finding out something so important with such ease was soon dispelled when the man, rather disappointingly, just said a few things about God that didn’t quite add up. Still, the seed was sown in Watson’s head…

Mark Watson has the ability to take an insignificant event and describe it has having lasting consequences for world peace. Then again, he does confess to writing a suicide note after losing a game of Connect 4 as a child (but the show will also be packed with literally hundreds of jokes as well – just in case you were worried).

“Watson is in the Edinburgh super league.”- The Guardian UK

“A comic alchemist turning the banalities of the everyday into glittering laughter” The Independent UK

Show duration: 1 hour.
