Mark will be here even when he’s not

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - LIFE & LEISIRE -

FANS of multi-award win­ning comics are in for a treat next year as Mark Wat­son an­nounces his fol­low-up to his re­cent tour Flaws.

In 2016 he is set to go on a 69 date tour, which sees him play the Wy­combe Swan on June 19, with his new show I’m Not Here.

Tick­ets were re­leased for pre-sale on Mon­day (Septem­ber 14), with them go­ing on gen­eral sale to­mor­row (Septem­ber 18).

A seem­ingly mi­nor prob­lem at an air­port forms the start­ing point of the show, which spi­rals into an ex­am­i­na­tion of iden­tity in the dig­i­tal age and a search for mean­ing in our lives.

Mr Wat­son was nom­i­nated for Best New­comer at the 2005 Per­rier Awards, be­fore be­ing awarded the 2006 if. com­edy Panel Prize.

He took home the Time Out Crit­ics Choice Award in 2006 and has been nom­i­nated for a Barry Award from the Mel­bourne Com­edy Fes­ti­val.

Mark Wat­son was the star of Dave TV’s Road to Rio, as well as the host of BBC 4’s We Need An­swers. He has also regularly ap­peared on BBC 2’s Never Mind The Buz­zcocks, and Mock the Week, BBC 1’s Would I Lie To You and Have I Got News For You and Dave’s Ar­gu­men­tal. He has per­formed stand-up on BBC 1’s Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Com­edy Road­show and Chan­nel 4’s Com­edy Gala.

As well as his TV work Mark has had a num­ber of crit­i­cally ac­claimed ra­dio shows, in­clud­ing his BBC Ra­dio 4 se­ries’ Mark Wat­son Makes The World Sub­stan­tially Bet­ter, Mark Wat­son’s Live Ad­dress To The Na­tion and Mark Wat­son Talks A Bit About Life, as well as 100 Mil­lion or Bust on BBC Ra­dio 5 Live, where he is also a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to Fight Talk.

He has also writ­ten a num­ber of nov­els – Ho­tel Al­pha, Bullet Points, A Light-hearted Look At Mur­der, Eleven and The Knot.

Fol­low­ing his ef­forts to halve his car­bon foot­print, he also wrote the book Crap At The En­vi­ron­ment. He is cur­rently work­ing on his sixth novel, which is due to be pub­lished in Sum­mer 2016.
