Award-winning comedy star Mark Watson is at The Leadmill in Sheffield this week with his new show, I’m Not Here.

A seemingly minor problem at an airport forms the starting point of the show, which spirals into an examination of identity in the digital age and a search for meaning in our lives through an enormous number of jokes, as well as Watson’s customary flailing, chaotic audience interactions.

Nominated for the Best Newcomer award at the 2005 Perrier Awards, and a former winner of both the if.comedy Panel Prize and Time Out Critics Choice Award, Mark Watson is regular on TV on the likes of Would I Lie To you?, Mock the Week and Have I Got News For You.

He has also had a number of critically-acclaimed radio shows, including his BBC Radio 4 series’ Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better.

His Leadmill show is on Friday, May 13 and tickets are available on 0114 2727040 or
