Mark Watson: How You Can Almost Win

In 2017, Mark Watson - a man prone to considerable anxiety, with multiple phobias and a history of piss-poor self-esteem - was asked to go on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.

It really wasn’t for him at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable. But the experience changed the shambolic comedian for the better, and now he's written a sort of motivational talk about what it taught him. But still with jokes.

The Lennon Retrospective is a two hour show that promises to take you on a journey through John Lennon’s popular back catalogue, serving up classic solos and Lennon penned early Beatles classics.

Fronted by Gaz Keenan, the band of professional musicians have played theatres countywide with the show, designed to offer an authentic Lennon experience.

A look alike and sound alike, Gaz featured in the ITV show The Big Audition which he went on to win. His ability to recreate John's soulful vocals alongside passionate guitar and piano work, is clear to see on stage. The show is stitched together with costume changes, uncanny mannerisms and caustic wit.
