Scandinavia

Mark Watson attempts to make sense of life looking at Scandinavia - a northern utopia? Does it even exist? From September 2016.

The multi-award winning comic Mark Watson, assisted and impeded in equal measure by henchmen Sam Simmons and Will Adamsdale, as he revives his quest to make sense of life against the backdrop of a world that, in recent times, has come to appear 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, in the final episode of the series, Watson allows Simmons to choose a topic which demonstrates the epitome of Good Living. They've tackled most of human life, but now the trio turn their attention to the biggest of them all - Scandinavia. Is it a northern utopia? Does it even exist?

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.
