Mark Watson and James Veitch head to Brisbane Comedy Festival and GC Laughs Festival

UK comedians Mark Watson and James Veitch head to Brisbane Comedy Festival and Gold Coast Laughs Festival March 2020.


MARK WATSON (UK)

British comedian, author and sports pundit Mark Watson is halfway through his life according to the life expectancy calculator. With this is mind, Watson takes an audit of his time on earth in his new show, This Can’t Be It, which premieres in his spiritual home, Australia.

His thirties have been eventful to say the least. At 40, his life is in the best shape in living memory… but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one. Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as Watson, as usual, attempts to cram a year of pathological overthinking into just under an hour’s stand-up. Maybe he’ll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.

An established writer with eight novels published to date, Mark Watson is no stranger to Australia, having appeared here multiple times to consistently full houses and rave reviews. His thoughtful stories with trademark twitchy charm prove that his cupboard full of UK awards are well deserved.

“A master at letting us in on his vulnerability… delightfully deft mixture of low-key happenings and high-end bants” ★★★★ – The Times
“This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game” ★★★★ – Independent 
“Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe…witty, warm, perfectly judged” ★★★★★ – Telegraph
