Comedian Mark Watson joins three other world-class performers for January’s edition of the successful monthly Outside the Box comedy club at the Stag.

We’re excited to announce that Mark Watson will be joining the line-up of top comedians performing at Outside the Box on Thursday January 08, 2015.

Mark Watson is an acclaimed novelist and comedian who started his professional comedy career in 2002 and that same year won the last Daily Telegraph Open Mic competition. Mark can be seen on countless TV screens appearing on Mock the Week and Never Mind the Buzzcocks and festival appearances. 

Mark Watson will be joining Lloyd Griffith, Rob Deering and Maff Brown as part of a super-saver line-up.

Resident host Maff Brown, creator of Outside the Box, is no stranger to the stage himself. Besides his own stand-up routines, performed not just in London but recently in Edinburgh and New York too, he has worked for ITV and Sky and has written for Omid Djalili. He has been hailed as “brilliant stand up” by Bill Bailey, and Frank Skinner said of him, “jokes fall out of him like gold coins coming out of a pirate’s chest”. GQ magazine have previously rated him third on its list of 10 essential Edinburgh shows.

Live comedy is an experience like no other. Every live event will have a one off specialness about it that will only happen in that moment. It could be one of our numerous unannounced special guests trying something out for a TV show, or it could be a perfect collaboration between the audience and the performer that would be unique and only privy to those who were there! You don't get that watching old re-runs on TV. Come and see Stand Up Comedy how it's meant to be and you can say "I was there when..."

Unbeatable value and the top names in comedy? It must be the Stag!

Performance: Thursday January 08, 8pm. 
Tickets: £16.50. A £2 administration fee is charged per sale
