Mark Watson: I'm Not Here

Event Date: 
10/04/2016 - 7:30pm
Venue: 
Exeter Corn Exchange, Exeter

Mark Watson (multi-award-winning star of numerous TV shows and his own cult Radio 4 series) returns with the follow-up show to his highly celebrated and successful 'Flaws'.

A seemingly minor problem at an airport is the starting point for a spiralling examination of identity in the digital age. But with an enormous number of jokes, luckily, as well as Watson's customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun.

In short: if you like comedy, but you don't come and see this, you're acting very oddly.

Mark Steel : Who Do I Think I Am?

Event Date: 
20/03/2016 - 8:00pm
Venue: 
Exeter Corn Exchange, Exeter

It never really bothered me that I'd never met my mum.

It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to 'find out who I was', as it didn't seem likely I'd discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts? But after the birth of my own son, I realised it's quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.
