Mark Watson's face is finally getting noticed on the telly with stints on "Never Mind The Buzzcocks", "Have I Got News For You" and "Mock The Week". In fact, he's getting so well known that recently someone successfully posed as him and took all his money. It made him think about the power of the Internet, his identity, and how he can stop crime forever and make the world a better place... and some other smaller matters.

Mark Watson is a comedian and novelist. He started out with the Cambridge Footlights and saw success at the Edinburgh Festival. He is a regular panelist on TV comedy shows and has written four comedy novels. He has also appeared in his own Radio 4 series "Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better".
