Mark Watson Do I Know You? tour
Show type: Tour
Fast-talking, wildly gesturing comic, author, sportswriter and husband Mark Watson is set to embark on a nationwide tour with his most personal show to date.
In the last few months, he’s competed in Mastermind, been mentioned in Heat Magazine and described a minor nervous breakdown to 14,000 people on Twitter, yet despite this, and appearing as guest of honour at his beloved team Bristol City’s ground, he still struggles with notions of importance and individuality.
On a planet which has been home to 112 billion people and will see quite a few more billions before the sun breathes its last breath, how are we meant to feel important? What does it even mean to be important, and should we care, or just get on with more manageable things like sex and watching the X Factor?
Watson will grapple with his theme over the course of a show that will also contain some of these things: a rant about tourism, a number of plans for reforming society (including a new way to fight), the story of an obsession with Derren Brown, some thoughts on fatherhood, a funny bit about going to the toilet in China, some stuff overheard on trains, a dissection on the phenomenon of confidence.
