Date : 2nd Mar (FRI) & 3rd Mar (SAT)
Time : 9pm Showtime, Seating 8pm

The Crackhouse is bringing in another explosive 2-for-1 double weekend headliners! This time we have a couple of travelling married comedians- family entertainment at its worst in the best way possible! In sickness and in health, this husband and wife comedy duo will make you say, "I do." to wanting to go to a comedy show. You are in for a hilarious merry time.
Award winning Irish-blooded comic Mary Bourke was born in Dublin during a cross fire hurricane. She lives in leafy Buckinghamshire with her comedian husband and her large collection of Betty Page memorabilia .Before she became a comic She was a burlesque dancer and choreographer in San Francisco. She has published numerous romantic novels under the pseudonymn Tara Sundrive. She is a pop culture enthusiast as well as an avid hip-hop fan. It's not what you might expect from a 45-year-old 'self-proclaimed housewife' wearing a flowery tea-dress, but that is exactly the point! Watch her break and shatter society's standard mould with jabs and gabs!
“One of the best stand-ups in the country”–GQ
“Savage & Lyrical”– New Statesman
Mary describes her comedian husband as "a coconut – he is half Jamaican, half English" – and lately he's discovered that brown is the new black – as he explores his mixed heritage in this funny and thought-provoking show.
Simon has made many television appearances, including The Punt And Dennis Show, Jo Brand: Through The Cakehole, Harry Hill's Fruit Fancies, For Amusement Only and Is It Bill Bailey?
Simon has been a stand up comic since the summer of 1995. He has performed nationwide as well as multiple cities across Europe & Asia.
