Comedian Mark Watson and his upcoming show on Sunday 16th October in Hackney, East London at EartH.
This Can’t Be It is inspired by taking a life expectancy test using an app on his phone and discovering he could expect to reach 78: in other words, he’s just over halfway to, as it were, the finish line.
What should we be doing with our time on earth, and how can we do it better? Watson has made a lot of strides towards happiness and fulfillment over the past few years. However, there’s one problem left, and it really is a big one...
Mark Watson had a pretty lively lockdown. With Tim Key and Alex Horne, he created the game ‘No More Jockeys’ which has now had more than 2 million YouTube views and found a rabid cult following. He published his most critically acclaimed book to date, ‘Contacts’, and wrote another, non-fiction, for release this year.
Before that, in the old days, the future national treasure had been a multi-award winner here and in Australia. A familiar voice on BBC Radio 4, where his series ‘Mark Watson Talks About A Bit Of Life’ has been one of the station’s most popular fixtures since 2007; and has most recently been working on a film project with Toni Collette and Studio Canal (while the rights to his graphic novel ‘Dan And Sam’ remain in the hands of Universal).
