After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, I’m Not Here, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he’s not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether.
It’s hard to be everywhere at once, so for Watson’s new tour, MW, he’s narrowed it down to a sensible plan: he will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials – as they’ve already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place.
A few of these will be favourite old haunts like Winchester or Manchester, but quite a few of them are the result of Googling and some are so remote that he won’t know they definitely exist until whe gets there. Three venues are even in Wales. Merthyr Tydfil (on October 14), Monmouth (on January 14) and Milford Haven (on January 26).
Mark Watson’s appearances have included BBC 2’s Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock the Week, BBC 1’s Would I Lie To You and Have I Got News For You and Dave’s Argumental.
