Combining his award-winning wit with thought-provoking insights, Watson finds that as humans, despite our lack of perfection and poor decision-making, we’re pretty spectacular. He may not have all the answers to life’s most serious questions, but ‘Flaws’ is sure to both humour and touch every generation of comedy fan.

Now aged 34, Watson is poised to look back at his life and reflect on growing up – including the terrifying aging process, parenthood and the fear of passing ill-fated traits onto your children. In this personal, thought-provoking adventure, Watson explores human character defects and the effects his own considered flaws have had on his life. ‘Flaws’ promises to be his most personal and funniest show to date
