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, supported Russell Kane on his national tour and become a regular MC. He has also broken into television to appear on Russell Howard’s Good News, present for MTV2 and most recently to write and perform on Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment.
In 2012 he appeared at the Edinburgh Festival as part of the long running and prestigious package show The Comedy Zone and returned in 2013 with his debut solo show, The Most Astonishing Name in Comedy. Mark returned to the Festival in 2015 with his brand-new hour long show, Log Flume.
When Mark is not gigging around the country, he has appeared on Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC2) and Nick Helm’s Heavy Entertainment (BBC Three) and 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 on 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and radio on The News Quiz (Radio 4). He presented his own webseries as part of the Youtube Channel People are Awesome and launched a new webseries in 2015 called The Singing Teacher which was co-written and co-starred Lloyd Griffith.
As one half of double act Dregs alongside Max Dickins, mark presented a podcast available on iTunes and SoundCloud and was also featured on Channel 4 website This Just In. Further to this the pair have also written commercial adverts, most noticeably for Tesco and Tango.
Mark is currently developing a new panel show and has started work on a short film.
