Sam Simmons


Presented by Brisbane Comedy Festival and Token Events

Forty year old man sits on stage and reads the phone book. G Jones 08 323 7261. I wonder what he’s up to these days.

2016 saw Sam Simmons completely sell out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival, the West End and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with his huge popularity seeing him do return seasons in both Melbourne, Brisbane and London.

He was also invited to perform in the latest series of BBC’s comedy program, Live at the Apollo. Don’t miss this brand new offering from this unique, once in a generation comedian.

WINNER Fosters Award for Best Comedy, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015

This show both demands your attention and deserves it ★★★★★

If you can imagine someone combining the rage of Basil Fawlty with the lunacy of Spike Milligan you are getting somewhere close to Simmons.
