Another top name has been added to the list of comedians set to grace the stage of Chorley Little Theatre.

Following in the footsteps of TV favourites Rob Beckett and Justin Moorhouse, who will both enjoy sell-out shows at the theatre this week, Mark Watson is set to visit next year.

Watson, the multi award-winning star of numerous TV shows including Dave’s ‘Road to Rio’, the BBC’s ‘We Need Answers’, ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘Mock The Week’ and ‘Have I Got News For You’, and his own cult Radio 4 series ‘Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better’ and ‘Mark Watson Talks A Bit About Life’, follows up his highly celebrated and successful show ‘Flaws’ with ‘I’m Not Here’.

A seemingly minor problem at an airport is the starting point for a spiralling examination of identity in the digital age and search for meaning in our lives.

But with an enormous number of jokes, luckily, as well as Watson’s customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions and all sorts of other fun.

He comes to town on May 19, and with tickets for fellow top comics selling fast, including Romesh Ranganathan, whose show for May is already sold out, it’s advisable to book early.

Tickets for Mark Watson are £17 from Malcolm’s Musicland in Chapel Street, or by calling 01257 264362.
