Mark Watson, And His Audience, Write A Novel

Note: This review is from 2006

Review by Steve Bennett


Winner of the if.comeddie Panel Prize

At this year's Edinburgh Fringe, Mark will attempt to fuse his different talents in an unprecedented literary/performance experiment.

Each day he will host a sort of literary workshop--cum-interactive comedy show. The aim is to have written, by the end of August, a novel ­ begun from scratch and woven entirely from audience suggestions, with another 2,000 words or so added every day
