Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better
Mark Watson aims to make the world better by performing stand-up based on the seven deadly sins (series 1) and the virtues (series 2)
Radio series in which Mark Watson performs stand-up material on a given theme, supported by his 'sometimes unwilling' assistants - poet Tim Key and musician Tom Basden (Tim Minchin in series one). As well as stand-up, the programme includes sketches, songs and life-changing advice, which may turn out to be not-such-good advice.
Our Review: Clever, well-observed, intelligent stand-up. Some find the accompanying poems and musical interludes annoying distractions from the gags, however others think they're what make the show the unique listen it is.
