About

Mark has rapidly established himself as one of the most interesting and exciting new comics on the circuit. Since reaching the final of So You Think You’re Funny in 2009, Mark has gigged all over the UK, is a regular MC and has broken into television to appear on Russell Howard's Good News and to present for MTV2. In 2012 he appeared at the Edinburgh Festival as part of the long running and prestigious package show The Comedy Zone. 2013 saw Mark take his debut solo show, The Most Astonishing Name in Comedy, to the Pleasance Courtyard at the same festival.


When Mark is not gigging around the country, he also performs warm-up gigs for shows such as Have I Got News For You (BBC1) and Room 101 (BBC1) as well as writing for TV (8 Out Of 10 Cats) and radio (The News Quiz).


Mark is also one half of double act Dregs alongside Max Dickins. They present a podcast available on iTunes and SoundCloud and have also featured on Channel 4 website This Just In. Further to this the pair have written commercial adverts, most noticeably for Tesco and Tango.


Mark is currently writing a six part comedy show for BBC3 as well as developing a new panel show.
