Mark Simmons: Quip Off The Mark

UK Comics’ Comic 2022 – Best Act

“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’, and social media phenomenon MARK SIMMONS brings his sell-out tour show ‘Quip Off the Mark’. Mark 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 show Quip Off The Mark which has toured over 125 venues and sold over 15,000 tickets. 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 4ExtraStands Up, a Channel 4 pilot starring alongside Bridget Christie, as well as BBC3’s One For The Road. Mark is enjoying further success with his solo podcast, Jokes With Mark Simmons, where he invites a fellow comic, such as Gary Delaney, Sarah Milican, and Milton Jones to discus 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 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.
“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 ★★★★★

“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 ★★★★
