Marc Wootton interview

The comedian, actor and star of High & Dry on the things that make him laugh the most.

Harriet Gibsone, The Guardian, 6th July 2018

Marc Wootton's decent desert island comedy - which pitches its improvised palm frond shelter somewhere between Lord of the Flies and Benidorm - continues. In tonight's episode, flight attendant Brett (Wootton) and Douglas depart for the other island - and make an interesting discovery.

John Robinson, The Guardian, 1st June 2018

The latest, desert island-set sitcom from Marc Wootton features characters who are as irritating as sand in your swimming costume - but therein lie the laughs. In this episode, survivors Harriet (Vicki Pepperdine) and Douglas (Harry Peacock) find a dinghy, but their plan of escape soon goes awry.

High & Dry review

If you were to think of the worst person to be stuck on a desert island with, Marc Wootton's latest grotesque would be hart to beat.

TV review: High & Dry, C4

Channel 4 is presumably pretty pleased with new sitcom High & Dry. It was originally due to air on E4 but has had an upgrade and now goes out on C4. Is their confidence justified? It is probably down to how much you can bear obnoxious characters.

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 4th May 2018

Even on an island paradise, hell is other people. Such is the neat premise of Marc Wootton's new comedy about castaways who survive a plane crash. There are some good one-liners but, in this opener at least, Wootton's garish sociopath, flight attendant Brett, rather overpowers the show.
