Mark Palmer

Launching our forthcoming Alpha course, we welcome funny man Mark Palmer for our next Comedy Night. These regular evenings at Dr Foster's have proved really popular.

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 last year, 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.

With a comedic voice heavily influenced by Jerry Seinfeld, Mark's ability to blend a theme or topic with one of today's funniest comedy routines is unparalleled. His smart, sometimes loud and often opinionated brand of comedy has made him an audience favourite wherever he performs. As Jerry Seinfeld said, "Funny is funny. Clean humour, if it's good, works anywhere.” It doesn't matter that Mark Palmer happens to be clean. He's funny. And funny is the thing that matters when you're watching a comedian. And having a comedian that is both clean and funny is a rare thing. But you are thinking it must be difficult to work clean all the time, right? "Clean comedy is easy. Funny comedy is hard." Mark is both.

"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

"The show is very tightly put together and had the audience in stitches with anecdotes regarding marriage, cell phones, and the boogie man just to name a few. A lovely build up leads to the revealing of the age-old mystery of chicken versus egg being finally resolved once and for all. Something that was a lovely public service announcement from the man and yet delivered with much humour was a tale regarding a blow up pillow" YOURSOAPBOX.co.za

"Clean, classy, clever ... a genuinely likeable guy ... his delivery smooth and well-pitched.” Cape Argus
