Mark Watson was named one of the sexiest Jews on Twitter. He is not Jewish. Sara Barron has been asked to role-play as a Catholic school girl one too many times. She is Jewish.
Join this hilarious duo for a night of stand-up and banter about how our identities shape our comedy. Mark Watson is one of the country’s best-regarded comedians, the recipient of half-a-dozen major awards, among the biggest-selling acts at the Edinburgh and Melbourne festivals, and routinely tours the UK performing at hundreds of venues every year (produced by Impatient). He's appeared on literally dozens of TV shows, but is perhaps best known for QI (BBC1); Taskmaster (Dave); The Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls (C4); Live At The Apollo (BBC1).
Sara Barron is one of the fastest-rising comedians of her generation. Since her 2018 debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, she’s starred on shows including Live at the Apollo (BBC), Would I Lie to You? (BBC) and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC). Sara’s two stand-up hours, For Worse (2018) and Enemies Closer (2019) have sold out at both the Edinburgh Festival and at multiple runs in London’s Soho Theatre.
One is a male, atheist, British comedian. One is a female, Jewish, American comedian. Live from JW3, Mark and Sara will make you laugh and answer once and for all: can comedy cross divides?
