Winner of the 2022 Comedian’s Comedian Award Mark Simmons is heading to Newport’s Riverfront Theatre & Arts Centre this autumn with his show ‘Quip off the Mark’.
Mark’s tour which has sold over 15,000 tickets over 100 venues is coming to Newport to kick off a Welsh leg of the tour. After selling out venues across the country including the Leicester Square Theatre, Brighton Komedia three times over, Liverpool’s Hot Water Comedy Club, Bristol Hen & Chickens, Cambridge Junction, two shows in Dublin and many more, Mark is playing a tour date in Newport for the first time.
As one of the highest gag-rate comics in the country, Mark has recently clocked up lots of TV & Radio appearances including Mock The Week (BBC2), DIY Pundit (BT Sport) and Fred At The Stand (BBCR4), whilst also racking up 167.5k followers on Tik Tok, 80k followers on Instagram, and 110k followers on Facebook.
Mark also presents his popular podcast, Jokes With Mark Simmons, where he invites a fellow comic to discuss jokes that they’ve written but just haven’t worked, and see if there is a way to salvage them or should they simply be thrown on the rubbish heap. This has featured the likes of Rob Beckett, Milton Jones, and Seann Walsh.
Catch Mark Simmons at The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre on 21st September 2023. For ticket availability visit the Riverfront’s website.
