Comedian and writer Mark Watson

Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe, October 8.

Comedian and writer Mark Watson will be hitting the road once again later this year with his new stand-up show This Can’t Be It.We’ve all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don't worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered.At 41, he's halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app he paid £1.49 for.That life is in the best shape in living memory... but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one.Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the Taskmaster survivor and multi-award-winner attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. Maybe we'll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.
