“One of the UK’s pre-eminent pun merchants…the quickest quipster in showbusiness.” - Evening Standard
As Seen on Mock The Week, BT Sport and ITV, ‘Master of one-liners’ Mark Simmons brings his brand-new show on the road.
Mark recently joined Dara O’Brian and Hugh Dennis on BBC2’s Mock The Week as a semi-regular on the show and now brings you his hotly-anticipated show Quip Off The Mark. He’s also been appearing on BT Sport’s DIY Pundit and The Rugby’s On. Mark has also appeared in other TV shows such as ITV’s Out There, BBC Radio 4 Extra Stands Up, a Channel 4 pilot starring alongside Bridget Christie, as well as BBC3’s One For The Road.
Mark hosted News-ish and Film-ish on Fubar Radio alongside co-host Seann Walsh and now is enjoying further success with his solo podcast, Jokes With Mark Simmons, where he invites a fellow comic, such as Gary Delaney and Milton Jones, to discuss jokes that they’ve written but simply just haven’t worked. This isn’t your average one-liner show as there is the running theme throughout.
This year Mark’s parents have sold the house he grew up in and he has to collect his box of stuff from the loft. Come and discover what’s in the box in this top-level one-liner show structured in a way you’ve never seen before.
