Mark discusses legacy. How will the world see us after we’ve gone, and is it really important? From September 2016.

Multi-award-winning Mark Watson, assisted and impeded in equal measure by henchmen Sam Simmons and Will Adamsdale, revives his quest to make some sort of sense of life, against the backdrop of a world, in recent times, has come to seem even more peculiar than usual.

The tenacious trio take on some of human life's central topics - family, spirituality, Scandinavia. Watson peddles his unique, high-octane stand-up while Simmons and Adamsdale chip in with interjections which include (but are not limited to) music, shopping lists, life advice, stunts, avant-garde offerings and divvy interactions.

Expect big laughs, controlled chaos and an attempt to answer the one question none of us can quite escape from - what exactly is going on?

This week’s topic is legacy. How will the world see us after we've gone, and is it really important? The trio consider their reputations, prepare their wills, and look the end in the face in this penultimate episode of the series.

Mark Watson is a multi-award winning comedian, including the inaugural If.Comedy Panel Prize 2006. He is assisted by Sam Simmons, winner of Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award 2015 and Will Adamsdale who won the the Perrier Comedy Award in 2004.
