Mark Watson – Original Review

Note: This review is from 2002

Review by Steve Bennett

Actually from Bristol, this wiry comic assumes the mantle of a laid-back Welshman for his quirky, offbeat set.

Although his observations are sometimes based on the obvious, he has a skilful knack of exaggerating them until they become his own.

And by accentuating the stupidity of his targets - from Army recruitment adverts to Sod's Law - this rookie is fast forging a distinctive comedy voice with his naïve yet questioning persona.
