Martin Semple

Martin Semple is a British comedian and serving soldier with the Household Cavalry regiment; he has served as part of the horse guard for the opening of parliament and as part of a military tour of Afghanistan.

As a comedian Semple calls on many of his experiences as a soldier, drawing comic relief from some of the most high intensity situations of the recent Gulf conflict. His ability to turn potentially terrifying situations into hilarious material for his work as a comedian mark Martin Semple as a genuinely unique and hugely talented member of the stand-up comedy circuit.

Semple reflects both on his time as a soldier and his experiences as a civilian, including a failed attempted a professional football career and his various attempts to break into the acting and theatre scene, with a sly and unyielding wit. His stand-up comedy is un-missable, audience’s revealing in his self-deprecating and sarcastic humour, applauding his personal strength and ability to overcome traumatic situations with a light and sharp comedy.

"Cracking tales told from a unique and refreshing perspective. He has confidence in droves and justifiably so as Martin is a new act definitely worth keeping an eye on" bbc.co.uk

He takes you on roller coaster journeys through his failings in life, although he is only 26 he has been a professional football then failed, attempted to be a thespian then failed and then joined the Army. As well as his hilarious anecdotes he works in some improvised pieces of banter with his audiences with his cheeky chappy personality. His comfortable style of story telling while reacting to the audience came across as very polished without losing its edge. He had some good solid lines, well presented material and turned in a fine performance that was in my opinion, far more robust than I thought someone of his age and relative level of experience was capable of delivering.
