Friday 26th July, 2019

The second week of the Knaresborough Comedy Festival 2019 starts with one of our all-time favourite acts and another appearing for the very first time. Tom Toal’s brand new show is another hour in his trademark style – relatable, confessional, personal and always hilarious. Mark Simmons is enjoying a meteoric rise in the comedy industry and is one of the best pure joke-slingers you’ll ever see. Together it’s another night of comedy of the very highest order!

Tom Toal Mediocre Boy (Work In Progress)

One of the brains behind the After All This Time Always Podcast with his brand new show in which Tom Toal asks some tough questions of himself and his place in the comedy industry.

Sounds a bit heavy to me… he will have some jokes as well about losing your wedding ring, going on holiday to Disneyland, working in a butchery and the expectation society places on us on account of our gender.

“A delightful hour of precious personal stuff” Scotland on Sunday

“Resplendent with fine gags and a pleasing storytelling rhythm” Scotsman

“Tom Toal captivates his audience with a unique brand of narrative comedy, that is as delightful to listen to as it is superbly funny.” Punchline Recommends

Mark Simmons Work in Progress

Star of ITV1’s Out There, Mark is an exceptional one-liner comedian. It won him a place in Dave’s prestigious Best Joke of The Fringe in Edinburgh 2017 and his solo show that year was nominated Best Show by the Amused Moose Comedy Awards. Also, he has been recently supporting Seann Walsh, Rob Beckett and Rob Brydon on their national tours.
