MARK SILCOX
Standup Comedian
Biography

Ex-scientist Mark works as a supply teacher in secondary schools. If you were to meet him you would immediately
realise that you were in the presence of a masterful academic, but someone who struggles with the subtleties of
 human connections and everyday life.  
 
He has a ‘no nonsense’ approach to everything he does which puts off those around him, but he fails to understand why.  
 
Mark is a traveller. He is an idealist, a minimalist who lives in his own world in his head. He has a respect for machines
which he doesn’t have for people because they never let him down. He is ‘at one’ with them and yet it took him seven
attempts to pass his driving test.  
 
This was a huge setback for him as his wife and daughter passed their driving tests before him. 
 
In 2013 he was a BBC Radio New Comedian of the Year finalist, but he did not tell his wife about this. Before Mark started doing stand up comedy he was a well respected badminton player in his local club due to his skilful grip on the game. The grip he developed by working hard over many years. But the arrival of a few young Chinese players at the club put Mark off from playing badminton and he registered for a stand up comedy course to find himself a new hobby.
