Will Mars: Phoenix

Brilliantly self-deprecating stand-up, Will Mars, is fast making a name for himself as a down-at-heel, yet lovable international star. As seen on FOX's Showtime at The Apollo, NBC's Trial By Laughter (Season 8 Finalist) & BBC's Stand-Up for Comic Relief.

"A remarkable talent ... A comic tour de force” **** EdFringe Review (U.K.)

"As a storyteller he is a joy to experience" **** Mumble Comedy (U.K.)

"A unique and witty perspective on thoughts that many have but rarely articulate" **** Adelaide Advertiser (Australia)

"Damn! That dude is funny!" Steve Harvey, Showtime at The Apollo (U.S.)

A low-key start set the tone for this slow burn of a performance, examining Will Mars’ midlife crisis. The intimate venue allows him to interact playfully with the audience, who were unsure whether to laugh at Mars’ account of his father’s physical abuse and imprisonment. His childhood left him with scars but he also inherited his mother’s dark sense of humour, and this pervades the entire performance. Mars details how a decade working in Spain for Club 18-30 left him poorly prepared for proper relationships and how falling in love with stand-up has given him purpose (if not financial security). Wisely, given the furnace-like room, he cuts the show slightly short but his thoughtful performance doesn’t short-change the audience. Click Here For Review
