Mark Restuccia returns with a follow up to the five-star Edinburgh show, How to Succeed at Internet Dating. Clearly he hasn't succeeded at internet dating and after exposing himself as a serial internet-dater, it's now become impossible for him to use regular online dating sites. So he's been driven away to the more obscure corners of the internet. Consequently, he has a year's worth of mind-boggling stories to share with you from the singles circuit. 'An instant hit, you'll be roaring with laughter' ***** (CreamOfTheFringe.com).

Full press release
In 2012 Mark Restuccia took his show How to Succeed at Internet Dating to the Edinburgh Fringe.
The gag-led sell out show met with critical acclaim but something was lacking. Everyone wanted to know Mark's story - how did he know so much about internet dating? What on earth had happened to set him on a path to having had 1500 such dates?
So he set about writing the answer...
After never really having any success throughout his school and college years, internet dating was Mark's way of finally being able to meet women - he'd always known his dream girl was out there somewhere, maybe she was looking for him too.
But finding the perfect woman was not so simple and after years of web-based womanising, online dating became an obsession and Mark became an expert.
Indeed his first show How to Succeed at Internet Dating exposed and labeled him as ...dun dun Duuuun... "a serial internet-dater" - so much so that after the show and the significant press coverage about it in women's mags, it's now become almost impossible for him to use regular online dating sites - everyone knows him as the boy who has had 1500 dates.
Some people may of course give up at this point, but instead Mark found himself driven away to the more obscure (and some would say darker) corners of the internet.
And while there he's collected a series of very odd stories that could only come from the seedy and secretive world of the 'adult' dating scene - where morals are scarce and nobody cares who you are or what you've done...
In this show, Mark has a whole year's worth of mind-boggling stories to share with you from the singles circuit. And they are all true.
Mark began his comedy career in 2007 and quickly developed in to an established circuit regular. Mark has played all over the UK and in Europe collecting a host of awards placings along the way including
- Leicester Square Theatre Comedian of the Year finalist 2009
- Laughing Horse finalist 2010
- Amused Moose finalist 2010
- Comedy Reserve at the Pleasance 2010
- BBC Comedy Award finalist 2011
Mark's book 'A Brief History of Internet Dating and The Singles Circuit' is due to be published in 2014.
