His music has been aired on Radio 1 by Mark Radcliffe, and on GLR by Mark Lamarr. A new epic, multi-genre, charity single 'Lions Of Britain'is currently underway to help put the 'United' back into the United Kingdom.

In the 90's as 'Yeti' he pioneered 'punk-comedy' (coining the phrase) appearing on shows like 'Take Over TV' (with Adam Buxton) as well as presenting various shows and writing the ideas / format for 'The Adam & Joe Show' including superimposing human mouths on toy characters. One of Mark's groundbreaking characters from that period was an able-bodied wheel chair user, screened and performed live in Reigate & Redhill (coincidentally a haunt of one pre-famous David Walliams).

More recently Mark stormed one or two clubs as the absurd stand-up Godfrey Cundington the stilt walking midget - (Mark's real legs go inside the stilts, sshh secret) - including warm ups before Paul Foot and Michael McIntyre. Mark comperes the annual 'Memory Of A Free Festival'.
