Edinburgh Preview: Mark Simmons & Maisie Adam
Mark Simmons: One-Linererer
‘Combine Harvesters and you’ll have a really big restaurant’ Dave’s Joke of the Fringe Top 10
Following last year’s Amused Moose: Best Show nomination for One-Linerer, Mark Simmons presents the hotly anticipated One-Linererer.
Mark has spent 2018 supporting Rob Brydon on his national tour, headlining comedy clubs around the country and hosting hit radio shows/podcasts News-ish and Film-ish alongside comedian Seann Walsh.
This isn’t your average one-liner shows as there is the running theme throughout, in which he has an extreme response to an unwanted review of the first work in progress outing of One-Linererer.
To whet your appetite further there will also be a live execution of an audience member! He will answer all the big questions such as “Do you ever get the feeling that you’ve left the iron on?”
‘A talented comic with an artisan’s grasp of joke writing’ ★★★★ Chortle
‘Absolutely hilarious’ ★★★★ The Scotsman
Maisie Adam: Vague
Eighteen months ago, Maisie decided to try stand-up comedy. Within a year, she won the biggest stand-up comedy newcomer competition (becoming the fourth woman to have done so in its 30 years), opened for major comedians, and claimed a Best New Comedy nomination at Brighton Fringe. In her debut, the northerner and self-confessed Slave to the Sesh relays her experiences of navigating the recklessness of youth whilst dealing with a medical condition that requires you to be a “Sensible Susan”.
Winner: So You Think You’re Funny? (2017)
