Mark Watson

Event #10: Mark Watson - Can I briefly talk to you about the point of life?




Welsh/Bristolian standup who literally stood up in the middle of the audience at the commencement of the show, delivering a prologue to his stage routine about 2 feet away from me. His style is breathless mania - an almost relentless barrage of material - but it occurred to me halfway through the show that he's often at his funniest when talking about his approach to the show.
Tomorrow night he starts a 24-hour routine outside the Fringe office - not a first for him - and at his rate of words per minute, "gruelling". For those who choose to stay the course with him through that show, he has but one word: "nutters".
