Comedy Wed 27 July 2022

Adele Cliff & Mark Simmons


Join us for an evening of comedy from Adele Cliff and Mark Simmons as they preview the new shows they will be taking up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this August.

Line up:

Adele Cliff

"Absolutely charming... a skilled performer, with a real presence and confidence" - The Scotsman

"Adele has a talent for writing in a pure joke form" - Funny Women

Adele was the UK Pun Champion (2020), the first woman to win the title and she is the only person to be named amongst Dave’s Funniest Jokes of the Fringe four years running (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019). An accomplished joke writer Adele has also featured in best jokes lists in The Telegraph, The Evening Standard, The Irish Times, The i Newspaper and The Metro as well as being nominated for Leicestershire’s Favourite Joke in 2019, and contributing to the Leicester Comedy Festival’s All Puns Blazing Joke book. Adele has provided tour support for Milton Jones and twice been names one of Funny Women’s One’s to Watch.

After a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2021, she will be doing a preview of her new show, In The Dark.

Mark Simmons

★★★★  "A talented comic with an artisan’s grasp of joke writing" - Chortle

Master of one-liners and frequently in Dave’s Top Ten Jokes of The Edinburgh Fringe, Mark Simmons recently joined Dara Ó Briain and Hugh Dennis on BBC2’s Mock The Week as a semi-regular on the show, and his solo show One-Linerer has repeatedly been a sell-out.  If you love Milton Jones and Tim Vine you are likely to adore Mark Simmons.
