★★★★ "This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game" Independent
In 2017, Mark Watson appeared on reality TV survival show Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. On the face of it, not a great decision for a guy prone to anxiety, with multiple phobias and poor self-esteem. It really wasn’t for the shambolic comedian and novelist at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable.
Yet Watson believes the experience changed him for the better and shares what it's taught him, but with jokes. This event is a witty, insightful and somewhat motivational talk about the highs and numerous lows of Watson’s most life-changing experience.
