Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Comedian Mark Watson Interview….
Mark Watson shot to fame on shows like ‘Mock the Week’ @ BBC2 and BBC 5 Live’s ‘Fighting Talk’.
Watson performed his final 24-hour show at the 2009 Fringe along with his “Earth Summit” and his “Edit”. The Earth Summit was Watson’s version of the Al Gore talk about world pollution and global warming and the Edit was a compilation of Watson’s fringe shows to date, made particularly for those who had not seen him perform there.
Watson’s debut DVD, titled The Mark Watson Edit was initially due for release on 15 November 2010. However, Watson was forced to shelve the project and a new DVD recording was released on 28 November 2011, entitled Mark Watson Live.
He’s now one of the UK’s most popular touring comedians and almost always on tour. He’s performed around the world including the Montreal Comedy Festival.
Enjoy a rare exclusive interview:
In 2009, Watson appeared in adverts for Magners Pear Cider, which became the subject of an extended routine by fellow comic Stewart Lee as part of his 2009, “If You Prefer A Milder Comedian, Please Ask For One” live show. Watson provided the voice over for a rabbit in an Innocent Smoothies advert in 2010.
On 25 February, Watson presented the 2009 NME Awards at Brixton Academy. At the start of the 2009/2010 season, Watson writes a regular article in the Bristol City official matchday programme Well Red.
In December 2009, Watson’s television drama A Child’s Christmases in Wales was screened on BBC Four.
