We’ve all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don’t worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered in Mark Watson: This Can’t Be It at the Cornerstone Arts Centre in Didcot..
At 41, he’s halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app that he paid £1.49 for. That life is in the best shape in living memory… but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one.
Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the Channel 4 Taskmaster survivor, multi-award-winner and lo-fi lockdown YouTube game No More Jockeys cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up.
Maybe we’ll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.
