2009 So You Think You're Funny finalist and 2013 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year runner-up.
Rising star Mark Simmons is a consummate one-liner comic. If you love Milton Jones you are likely to adore Mark Simmons. Big hit on the UK circuit and supports some of the bigger names on tour, including Seann Walsh who he co-hosts a movie podcast with. Very clever writing combined with a quirky stage persona.
'To put it simply: if you like Tim Vine, you'll like Mark Simmons, who shares the same love of a tight, silly pun and crushes an admirable quantity into his solo debut, without sacrificing quality' (Steve Bennett, Chortle)
'Clever quips and elegant jokes@ (Standard).

Back in 2007, Darius Davies began his comedy career gracing the stages of the open mic nights in New York. Pretty swiftly, his unique brand of high octane comedy got him noticed and he won an MTV New Talent contest; opening the door for Darius to strut his stuff on MTV America.
A distinct voice in a sea of ubiquity – Darius is fearless in his belief in what is funny and forging his own path. This is high energy, captivating stand up comedy fuelled with passion, soul and wit. He also has the best routine about electrical plugs you will ever hear.
'An on the street observationist with an eye for the absurd with sharp lines and rough edges. High-energy and crowd pleasing' (Comedy Punter)
'Brilliant, hilarious, outstanding...' (Broadway Baby).
Darius Davies tour dates
Potato, potato, potato, potato, potato, potato, potato, potato, pot of gold, potato. Ireland's top comedy trio present a fast paced mix between sketch comedy and stand-up. Wickedly twisted characters, unpredictable scenes and high energy performances.
In just four years Foil Arms & Hog's blend of bizarre, ridiculous and surreal sketches have carved them a loyal cult following.
'A powerhouse of sketch comedy’ (Chortle)
'Fantastic and increasingly bizarre' (The Scotsman)
'Original, well-written and really, really funny' (Kevin Bridges)
'Deliriously funny and at times unexpectedly dark' (The List)
'They should be the world's top comedy trio. I have never laughed so much in one
hour - ever' (Broadway Baby)
'Unless you're clinically immune to laughter, you will indeed be delighted and
entertained. For sheer, unadulterated entertainment, and a great night out, you'd be hard pressed to find better. The only downside on the night was you left craving for more' (The Examiner)
'Impeccable comic timing, silly humour and just generally an exceptionally good
evening. You'd be mad to miss Foil, Arms and Hog' (The Public Reviews)
'Most comedy acts are lucky if their show contains one uproarious laugh that unites the whole audience. This Irish troika is good for one per sketch in a performance that’s greased with charm' (The Sunday Times Culture).
Foil Arms & Hog tour dates
Paddy has been tour support for Rhod Gilbert, Lucy Porter and Micky Flanagan.
He started Stand-Up in December 2001 only to be interrupted with a couple of comedies at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and a couple of surreal commercials in far off lands, before returning to his new found passion.
A naturally funny, warm comic who plays all the big (and small) clubs in the UK. He has also gigged in South Africa, Germany, Ireland, Croatia, Estonia, Malta, and lil' ol' Slovenia.
'... simply a scream' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... comedy the way it should be: a laugh-a-minute which leaves the audience wishing the show was just a little bit longer... gentle Irish lilt belies a mischievous sense of humour' (Fest).
'Excellent stand-up, Paddy Lennox, is laid-back and charismatic. Vastly entertaining. This show proves that the AAA stand-up comedians have great things ahead of them' (Three Weeks).
Paddy Lennox tour dates
Rich Wilson has loved comedy ever since his older next door neighbour gave him a cassette of Eddie Murphy - Delirious.'It was the most mindblowing thing I'd ever heard. My young ears had never heard language like it.'
His comedy aspirations lay dormant until he got a job as a barman at a comedy club in Greenwich, South London. Then in 2004 following some back slapping by those around him, Rich Wilson hit the stage and even amazing himself, hasn't looked back since.
'Highly entertaining' (Time Out)
'Effortlessly funny, smart and filthy. Recommended' (Leicester Mercury)
'He's a very, very funny man' (Frank Skinner).
