Mark develops three new shows on the Monkey Barrel stage this August.
Monday August 9th – Wednesday August 11th 2021
Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB3)
MARK WATSON: YOUR TIME
Eager to talk to people again, wiry Taskmaster survivor Mark Watson requests just under an hour of your time and will discuss various things that'll eventually be in his 2022 show, including - funnily enough - this business of time itself and what on earth we are meant to do with it. This is not a proper show but it will be worth the low entry price.
9th and 10th August
20:30 (1 hour) - MB3
MARK WATSON: AMA
Often these days, you'll see well-known people say 'AMA' on Twitter because they're bored on a train or something. It means 'ask me anything'. Mark Watson has never done this, because he never is bored on a train, because his brain is horrendously overactive. But what would happen if you did it in a physical environment? A show shaped by your curiosity. Bring a question. NB if questions run out Mark will, instead, ask them to the audience. And he is pretty nosy.
18:45 (1 hour) - MB3
MARK WATSON: READING FESTIVAL
Pronounced like the action, not the town. Future national treasure Watson does readings from: his forthcoming memoir, '8 Deaths (And Life After Them)'; his new novel-in-progress; and another writing project which you will be surprised to hear about. If all this doesn't really sound like comedy, it isn't, but it will be reasonably fun because of his likeable personality.
20:30 (1 hour) - MB3
