Show 21 – Sam Simmons

By August 2, 2019 October 13th, 2019 No Comments

Pat Doherty is one of the fastest rising comics on the Sydney scene. His crowd work and energy are an iconic combo as he smashes gigs across the country. He recently headlined the prestigious ‘New in Town’ comedy tour and is a regular on SBS Viceland.

Billy D’Arcy is a young comic who is quickly making a name for himself on the Sydney comedy circuit. In 2017 he was a triple j RAW Comedy National Finalist and in 2018 he was handpicked for the Sydney Comedy Festival Roadshow. With his rapid punch lines and class clown persona, Billy has entertained audiences at all of Sydney’s biggest rooms. Behind his likable nature there is an edge to his comedy, as he takes down everything from personal trainers to Australia’s Next Top Model. Having shared the stage with the likes of Nick Cody and Rhys Nicholson, there is no doubt that Billy D’Arcy is one of Sydney’s brightest comic stars of tomorrow.

Sam Simmons is one of the most daring and unconventional comics in Australia, completely original and vastly absurd, he has one foot firmly planted into the soils of reality, and the other rooted deep in a determination to redefine silliness.

Sam returned to the stage in 2019 with a brand-new show, 26 Things You’re Doing Wrong with Sam Simmons to critical acclaim.

Sam regularly appears on radio and television all over the world including appearing on the UK’s BBC’s Live At The Apollo & Channel 4’s 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, numerous Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala’s, Network TENs Hughesy We Have A Problem, and filming a comedy special ‘Stop Being Silly’ for Australian streaming service Stan.

In 2012 Sam assembled a wonderful cast of Australia’s pre-eminent absurdist’s for Problems, a four-part journey through the cream brick Neverland that is the Australian suburbs. Problems aired in Australia on ABC1, throughout the UK on UKTV’s Dave network. You may have also seen Sam on Conan where he appeared in 2013

Now hovering between Australia, London and Los Angeles, Sam is a true Australian original.
