Mark Watson

Mark Watson

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 at the Festival 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.
