Mark Watson – The Infinite Show

SOLD OUT

He’s been cluster-bombed with yoghurt on Dave’s Taskmaster and half-killed on Channel 4’s Bear Grylls' Celebrity Island. Now Mark returns to what he's best at: being indoors.

Inspired by the mostly alarming state of the world his children are growing up in, and a genuine, urgent desire to do something about it, this show is about empathy. 99 percent of the world's population is made up of other people: why can't we understand them? As scrawny and impassioned as ever, one of the UK's most beloved and thinnest acts offers some suggestions, with his usual notoriously high joke-and-rant-per-minute rate.

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

WHY? ‘He sparkles with originality and verve' Chortle

'A kind of unstoppably funny Superhero' Sunday Times

'Hugely entertaining, craftsmanlike, remarkable' Telegraph

Courtyard Theatre
£19

Simon Brodkin: Let Me Introduce Myself

You may know him as ‘comedy legend’ Lee Nelson or as the ‘unfunny pillock’ who gave Theresa May a P45, but you won’t know him as ‘tiny Jew’ Simon Brodkin.

After three hugely successful series of Lee Nelson on the BBC, multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at The Palladium, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala) and several world-famous stunts on the likes of Donald Trump, Kanye West and Sepp Blatter, Simon unveils his funniest persona yet; himself.

In this highly anticipated ‘debut’ show, the award winning, critically acclaimed comedian takes us from his childhood growing up on the mean streets of Hampstead Village, to his adulthood as a failed doctor, inept parent and fairly rubbish Jew.

WHY? ‘Prodigious talent’ The Times

‘Satire so sharp you could slash a tyre with it’ Daily Telegraph
