Mark Watson – The Infinite Show

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

Stephen K Amos: Before and Laughter

In 2010 the world was in a sorry state. Fast forward ten years and everything’s still going downhill.

Stephen has had his own share of highs and lows too. And when the world gives him lemons, he adds gin, tonic, ice and a healthy dose of humour. Forget the divisions and discord and immerse yourself in an hour of bridge building laughter to welcome the new decade.

As seen on BBC2's QI and Pilgrimage, ABC TV's The Project and BBC1's Live at the Apollo.

WHY? ‘Truly top class comedian’ EdFest

'Unashamed feel-good entertainment' The Evening Standard

Suitable for ages 16+ years.

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.

WHY? 'Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe... witty, warm, perfectly judged' ★★★★★ Telegraph

'This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game' ★★★★ Independent

'He always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants... creating a bespoke experience for every gig, an added flourish to a strong hour of stand-up' ★★★★ Chortle

'A quick-fire hour of fun' ★★★★ Metro

Age guidance 14+ years

Courtyard Theatre
