This week’s comedy on demand.

Jokes with Mark Simmons

In this new podcast, one-liner comedian Simmons and a guest share jokes they've written that just haven't worked - whether because they're too long, too stupid, too clever, too groanworthy or just too rubbish. The series has launched with two episodes featuring pun-loving Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Glenn Moore and star of Strictly Come Dancing - and quite a few tabloid front pages - Seann Walsh, who Simmons has supported on tour. Later episodes will include people without a needless double n in their first name. Listen here.
