A multi-award-winning comedian, author and Taskmaster survivor is bringing his brand-new tour to Kendal.

Mark Watson will entertain audiences in the town on June 2, when he plays at the Brewery Arts Centre.

His new tour This Can’t Be It is inspired by taking a life expectancy test using an app on his phone and discovering he could expect to reach 78 and his subsequent thoughts on what should we be doing with our time on earth, and how can we do it better?

The 41-year-old had a pretty lively lockdown.

With Tim Key and Alex Horne, he created the game ‘No More Jockeys’ which has now had more than 2million YouTube views and found a large following. 

He published his most critically acclaimed book to date, ‘Contacts’, and wrote another, non-fiction, for release this year. 

Before that, Watson had been a multi-award winner in the UK and in Australia. 

A familiar voice on BBC Radio 4, where his series ‘Mark Watson Talks About A Bit Of Life’ has been one of the station’s most popular fixtures since 2007; and has most recently been working on a film project with Toni Collette and Studio Canal (while the rights to his graphic novel ‘Dan And Sam’ remain in the hands of Universal).
