Hello. Mark Watson here. You've seen me on various TV stand-up shows perhaps, or hosting Never Mind The Buzzcocks
, or you've tuned in to my own Radio 4 series, or read my books, or you've never quite done any of these things but have been waiting patiently for your moment. Well, this could be it. This is my eagerly-awaited debut DVD, which I recorded at a sold-out Bristol Hippodrome in July 2011 (I realise the previous sentence sounds a bit cocky, but it's the way people talk in advertising blurbs.). Anyway, it was a pretty lively show, with extreme audience participation, death-defying acts, and a devastating assault of jokes and stories. I also wave my arms around a lot and yell and there's a bit involving a Pringle which I didn't plan. There are also a couple of enticing extras.
Here are some things others have written about me:
'A stand-up superstar' Time Out New York
'A scholar, a gentleman and a brilliant stand-up' Evening Standard
'Simply Exhilarating' Daily Telegraph
'Mark Watson is a Prodigy' The Guardian
All in all, I feel there's a strong case for you buying this DVD and I for one would be delighted if you did.
