RIP the 'Mackem Motormouth'Sunderland comedian Mark Rough who called himself the Mackem Motormouth died recently after a short battle with cancer.
The stand-up, who was in his mid-40s, was diagnosed about a month ago and had been undergoing intensive chemotherapy at St James Hospital in Leeds.
His friend Jill Bell broke the news of his death on Facebook. She posted: It is with great sadness I have to tell you that my old pal Mark Rough passed away at tea time.
I was supposed to see him again at the beginning of the week but crashed my car so couldn't get there. He laughed and took the piss as he always did, and told me not to worry, that he could wait until later this week
Colleagues were quick to post tributes and condolences on Twitter.
Justin Moorhouse said: Mark Rough - comedian and rough diamond died today. Thoughts with his family. Shitty news.
Toby Foster added: Mark Rough was a lot of things. Most of them crackers. It's sad that he's gone.
And Phil Walker added: Can't believe comedian Mark Rough has died, I'm really gutted what a top bloke. RIP Mark God Bless You xxx

Hi, Mark was awesome, he really knew how to get the most from the crowd, clearly a veteran of the military entertainment circuit.

"Just to say we had a fabulous time on Friday and Mark was fantastic! He certainly kept us laughing all night. Lots of people commented later on how good he was and extremely funny. Thanks again and I'm sure when we hold our next function we'd love to book him again."
"Thank you, yes Mark was very entertaining, had everyone in stitches and managed to tone down his set to suit the occasion. I would recommend him to others"
- Alex Clarkson
Thanks. Mark is an excellent comedian. His act was pitched at the right tempo and contributed to a thoroughly enjoyable evening; made even more so
by Mark. I had nothing but great comments about Mark the entire evening and the following morning. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone who
requires a stand up comedian with fast wit and humour that brings tears of laughter to everyone's eyes. Again, thanks very much"
- Dalton Barracks
I cannot praise highly enough Mark Rough and his approach to compering our
comedy night. Mark completely stole the show with every person that I have
had feedback from saying what a fabulous comedian. He took time, worked out,
took control of and educated our audience to the point that they were in his
hands. I have never seen professionalism like it and we will be in touch very soon
to re book Mark to come and compare our next Comedy night. We look forward to having him back and again cannot praise him highly enough
he was FANTASTIC!!!
Apologies for the delay in responding to your enquiry - circumstances.
The evening on 19th October went very well. We were delighted with Mark Rough's contribution, his preparation and punctuality, his engagement with his audience and his tailoring of material to suit the nature of that audience. I would be surprised if his appearance that evening did not lead to further bookings.

Hi just a short note to pass on feed back regarding our booking for Mark Rough he was very professional arrived on time and went down very well with my guests .
He was very funny and was sensitive to the audience ie. kids etc, I would have no hesitation in booking him again.
