Mark Simmons

comic/actor/blogger

With charm and idiocy in abundance, Mark Simmons takes you on a gentle jaunt through the meandering labyrinth of his pun-ridden consciousness.

Delightfully daft but carefully crafted jokes punctuated by absurdly self aware set pieces will have you trying out all your different laughs from the raucous chuckle to the giggle of recognition.

Autumn 2014 Mark is on tour support duties with Seann Walsh at theatres throughout the
UK. He is also an actor in improvised documentaries (Docuprov), he writes/acts in short films (Gay Subterraneans), write/acts in online sketches (Something Thingy) and writes film reviews (UK’s 3rd Worst Movie Reviewer http://www.marksimmonshaha.blogspot.co.uk)
