COMEDY - Mark Palmer
Fri 17 March 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
For 12 years Mark Palmer built up a reputation as one of South Africa’s most in demand comedians for three main reasons, being "Clean, classy and clever" (Cape Argus). Before moving to the UK in 2014, Mark was known as the only 100% "clean" stand-up comic in SA. This landed him work with such notable companies as the Protea Hotel Group, Ford, iTouchSA and many more. Year after year, Mark took a different solo show to Grahamstown National Arts Festival (their version of Edinburgh) with critical acclaim.
On top of being a mainstay on the UK and SA comedy circuits, Mark has also gigged at Prague Comedy Festival, on Malta, in Belgium, Ireland and on board too many international cruise ships to mention.
"Mark Palmer is one of a rare breed of comedians: he can make you laugh without having to pepper his routine with expletives or venture too far below the belt. He's great at slice-of-life comedy, and deftly gives a wide range of subjects a sharp nudge in the ribs..." The Cape Times
"Clean, classy, clever ... a genuinely likeable guy ... his delivery smooth and well-pitched.” Cape Argus
