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’ 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 also 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 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 ★★★★

Information

Monkey Barrel Comedy is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Our rooms are located at the top end of Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile and can be easily accessed by Bus and Taxi from South Bridge or by foot from either Cowgate or the High Street.

As with many venues in the traditional and historical Old Town, some of our spaces have accessibility limitations. Please contact us in advance (via email to our Box Office at boxoffice@monkeybarrelcomedy.com) if you have any access requirements, so we can advise on the options available. 

MB1 is at ground level and can be accessed via most wheelchairs with some adjustments made for you outside the venue. Please let us know in advance of buying a ticket (via the Box Office) so we can confirm and be prepared for your arrival. Because of the physical changes required outside of the venue, we cannot guarantee entry unless we are notified in advance.

MB3 and MB4 are accessed via a series of steps. If you are able to move over short distances, our team can assist and looking after any mobility equipment.

If you have any questions, please contact our Box Office at boxoffice@monkeybarrelcomedy.com.
