i was friends with Mark in the early 80s in Sheffield, he was funny then, haven't seen a live performance by him but know he was a lovely person, funny and deep.
As a Sheffielder I rememeber Mark doing Sheffield Gigs before the Tube and I can say that at least in Sheffield at that time (1980 - 1982) he was well respected and much sought after. When he popped up again as Mark Hurst in th 1990s, I found him as equally entertaining as he was back then. However that time lapse did give me plenty of time to forget everything he ever said in 1980, except, when opening up the show for questions from the audience at Sheffield Poly, someone asked him if he had a brother. He replied, "yes, Desmond Miwords"
Old, tired material. No comedy atmosphere. Went down like a wet weekend in Portsmouth. Eventually walked off as 'no one's laughing'.
Top-motch comic,laughed meself silly
I liked him when he appeared on The Tube.Ain't seen him since but I never figured he'd get "boring"..ah well
If you recognise Hurst it's because he appeared on The Tube in the 80s calling himself Mark Miwordz. If you recognise his act it's because it has appeared on every comedy stage (in one form or another) since even before then. His creaky routine of "do you remembers.." (Chopper bikes, lucky bags etc.) is the sort of tired and lazy performance which can only be aired in the safety of the "politer" clubs. Put him on anywhere else (has he been to Malcolm Hardee's place?) and he'd leave in tears. Let the jokes go Mark - they're not worth it. Wonder what he does for a day job?
Saw him live and can honestly say that he was one of the most boring acts I have ever seen.His material is tired and old.Do we really need more jokes about how much women love shoes?
