The Edinburgh Fringe is an excellent platform for comedians and performers to talk about big issues, and this year has certainly brought a lot of well-deserved hot topics to the forefront of comedy. However, sometimes you just need hundreds of jokes thrown at you really quickly, to momentarily forget how grey the world is outside. I know just the man to bring this kind of levity and joy: if you were wondering where all the jokes are, you can find them in Mark Simmons show, One-Linererer.
Mark’s show is everything you’d hope it would be with a title One-Linererer; it is full of fast, punchy one-line jokes, combining clever and silly in the perfect recipe. It is a show that you need to be on board with from the start, because if you fall behind, you aren’t going to be able to keep up to the end. Despite being a show of one-liners, Simmons sets up each punchline perfectly, with callbacks and themes that you wouldn’t think could even be possible.
Catch Mark Simmons: One-Linererer at 4pm at Banshee Labyrinth throughout August. This is a free performance, though we recommend a generous donation at the end of the show.
