Read our comedy profile of Mark Silcox and see him live

By Ben Williams

Who? An impressively moustachioed, middle-aged Indian comic. He’s the polar opposite to the slick and trendily coiffed stand-ups filling the circuit. 

What? Silcox’s deadpan, almost robotic delivery takes a few seconds to grab hold of. But once you’re on board with the ex-scientist’s absurd observations, it’s impossible not to fall in love with him. 

Why? He’s quite unlike anyone else. Can you think of another comic doing ‘bits’ about their love of word-processing software WordPerfect 5.1?
