Sam Simmons

“The one thing I never realised about Simmons is that he is a phenomenally good stand-up.”
- ★★★★★ The Scotsman, 2017

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 has collected awards, glowing reviews, and played to sell out houses around the country and internationally. In 2012, Sam led a handpicked cast for his four part ABC sketch comedy series, Problems. In 2013, he appeared and performed stand up on the Conan O’Brien show in the USA.

In early 2015, Sam took out the Barry Award for Most Outstanding Show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and he then went on to take out Edinburgh’s top prize, the most sought after award in the live comedy industry, the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award (the comedy equivalent of an Oscar), for which he was also nominated in 2011 and 2014.

Sam returns in 2018 with a brand new show, Radical Women of Latin American Art, 1960 – 1985

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