Comedian Mark Watson presents his new show I’m Not Here.
The multi-award-winning comedy star of numerous TV shows – Dave’s Road to Rio, BBC’s We Need Answers, Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You, and his cult Radio 4 series Mark Watson Makes The World Sustainably Better and Mark Watson Talks A Bit About Life – brings his follow-up live show to the gloriously intimate setting of The Stables Spiegeltent.
A seemingly minor problem at an airport is the starting point for a spiralling examination of identity in the digital age and a search for meaning in our lives…
With an enormous number of jokes, as well as Watson’s customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun conspire to make this a compellingly funny evening.
In short: if you like comedy and you don’t come and see this, you’re acting very oddly.
