Publisher's Summary

As a starting point in making the world a better place, Mark will free you from sin. It's a big task, but he thinks it's going to go really well. Mark Watson is not only a fantastic stand-up comedian, but he may also be the best chance we have to overcome sin. He's got a plan to teach us everything we need to know about the Six Deadly Sins (he knows it's usually seven, but he's doing Greed and Gluttony together as a special offer). In the space of six episodes the world should become a substantially better place, making this above all a public-spirited gesture. Mark Watson Makes the World Substantially Better will be a mixture of stand-up, sketches and songs. There'll be life-changing advice too, and even if this turns out to be bad advice, it'll still have good jokes in it. The show features Mark Watson, Tim Key and Tim Minchin.

Making the world substantially funnier

If you're a fan of hilarious random ramblings, and crazy little songs, then this is the audiobook for you. Mark Watson is funny, sweet, and the stories from his life ('Exemplum, exemplum!') are brilliantly entertaining. For similar daft thoughts, check out Dave Gorman's Genius. A chuckle a minute, enough to put a smile on anyone's face.

Amusingly whimsical

I listen to this over and over again because it is amusing, harmless, and has enough variety to keep me entertained (even if I do listen as I am falling asleep in bed.)

The biggest criticism I could have is that it does waste a lot of time repeating things, and half the show seems to be taken up with explaining what the show is. But once you accept that, it doesn't really matter! It's worth it to hear Mark's hilarious and almost exclusively train-related anecdotes, interspersed with witty comments by Tim Key and musical offerings by Tim Minchin. A favourite is Minchin's "Sloth" song.
