Mark Simmons – Setup, Punchline, Laughter, Repeat
  • West End

Mark is also known for his hosting skills, where he recorded, 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 Delany and Milton Jones to discuss jokes that they'vewritten 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 has to collect his box of stuff from the loft. Come discover what's in the box in this top-level one-liner show structured in a way you've never seen before. He will also answer all the big questions such as "Do you ever get the feeling that you've left the iron on?"

"Absolutely hilarious." The Scotsman

"A lot of excellent funny one-liners." Bruce Dessau

"A talented comic with an artisan's grasp of joke writing." Chortle

"Master of one-liners&his (show) consist(s) of literally one liner after one liner, with one or two breaks for the audience to catch their breath before another assault on the laughter and muscles with the next segment." One4Review

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
