Comedian Mark Simmons was a guest at Nick Helm’s Christmas show in December 2018. He delivered off-beat one liners and puns to an encouraging audience. He told a story through telling his jokes which endeared him to the crowd making him a popular hit.
In February 2021, Simmons was a guest online for Maureen Younger’s MY Comedy Chats where he described his joke writing process and his experience of living in lockdown.
The comedian appeared online side by side with fellow comedian Seann Walsh at Always Be Comedy Online in April 2021. They both created an inspired set where Walsh was teaching Simmons the art of comedy using cleverly devised zoom tricks and extremely funny routines.
I watched the superb comedian headlined the Sofa SoFunny! showcase in July 2022 and again in May 2023. He had an incredible ability to take a subject from the crowd and instantly deliver a joke. The audience loved the act which was full of belly-laughs.
Simmons is a highly recommended one-line joke-teller, and I am looking forward to seeing him again soon.
