Review - Mark Watson

Last night we ventured out to see Mark Watson's show: "I’m worried that I’m starting to hate almost everyone in the world" at The Studio. He's a Welsh comedian, and seemed quite mad. It was largely improvisation, with loose themes. I found some of it quite funny, and felt that he really played to an Australian audience quite well.



He had a great section about being upsold on mobile phone features (like downloading music video clips to your mobile, and being made to feel like a fool by the sales rep. because you DON'T watch television on your mobile phone). He asked why would I want to watch television on my mobile phone - I have a television set? When you have a specific device for something, why do you need your mobile phone to do it? It'd be like taking a shit in your tumble-dryer! I resolve to use that the next time Vodafone tries to sell me on a phone that is 47 things in one.

He also was very down on London (where he lives) and Australians wanting to go to London, convinced that it is where it all happens. He thought we were quite mad, and I am inclined to agree. London sucks, Sydney rocks.

I was a bit disappointed that he didn't get more enthused about the theme of his show - hating everyone in the world. Perhaps I am more developed at this than he is (after all, I am not worried about thinking most everyone is awful).

Besides that though, it was a fun hour of comedy, and if you want to go see him, he's on until the 13th May. Click here for tickets: http://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/sections/whats_on/boxoffice/event_details.asp?EventID=2174&sm=1&ss=1
