Simon King

Simon, King

Simon King completely changes a room when he takes the stage. Aggressive, truly insightful and possessing a unique explosive delivery all his own he bombards the audience with intelligent and flat out hilarious material at break neck speed. This coupled with his ability to seamlessly insert characters, impressions and improvisation means he’s unlike anything else in the stand up comedy world. 

Being the kind of comic that comes along maybe once in a generation gets you noticed. It wasn’t long before he was being invited to play some of the world’s most prestigious comedy competitions and festival. From his appearances at the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, Seattle International Comedy Competition, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Edmonton Comedy Festival, Moncton Comedy Festival, Vancouver International Comedy Festival, North West Comedy Fest, Kuala Lumpur Comedy Fest, Virgin Music Festival and Just For Laughs Festival to his breakout performances at the prestigious HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the HBO, TBS Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, he's made a huge impact wherever he’s been.

A workhorse and veteran performer with more than a decade and a half in stand-up under his belt Simon has played everything from theatres to comedy clubs to dive bars. With numerous national television appearances including Comedy Network, CBC, CTV, TBS, Comedy Central to name a few and regular radio play on both terrestrial and satellite radio it seems only a matter of time before this grass roots superstar becomes a household name.

His unmistakable style, commanding stage presence and lightning wit will win you over but the scope, meaning and sheer hilarity of his material will blow your mind. There is no question that Simon King is an absolute force of nature.
