News: Comedian Mark Watson will bring UK tour of The Infinite Show to Lincoln

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

Mark Watson’s new show is described as being inspired by the shocking state of the world his children are growing up in.

The comedian is on a UK tour with The Infinite Show, his latest stand-up offering that’s about empathy.

The show will visit Lincoln Drill Hall on Saturday, October 19.

Audiences are told to expect Mark tearing into his topic with his notoriously high joke and rant per-minute-rate.

And, as the title suggests, he is aiming for an evening which will last longer in the mind than the hour the audience spend with him.

 

Mark has had a long and notable Fringe career since he was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2005 Perrier Awards, before being awarded the 2006 if.comedy Panel Prize for performing one of his legendary marathon stand-up shows.

Away from Edinburgh, he’s taken home the Time Out Critics Choice Award, been nominated for a Barry Award from the Melbourne Comedy Festival, as well as winning Best Show at both Sydney and Adelaide.

In 2017 Mark competed in series five of Dave’s BAFTA-winning Taskmaster.

In the same year he also lost almost three stone and faced a crippling lifelong phobia during a stint on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. Mark left on doctors orders after suffering from severe chest pains and insomnia.

Mark has also regularly appeared on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, Would I Lie To You and Have I Got News For You.

He has performed stand-up on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, and has also won Celebrity Mastermind and Celebrity Pointless.

Since the last Edinburgh, his graphic novel Dan and Sam has also been optioned as a feature film by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and is now in development.

Event time: 8pm. Tickets: £12, £17, £23. Box office: 01522 873894 or online
