Sam Simmons

WINNER Fosters Comedy Award, Edinburgh Fringe
WINNER Barry Award, Melbourne International Comedy Festival

“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 returned to the stage in 2018 with a brand-new show, Radical Women of Latin American Art, 1960 – 1985 to critical acclaim and sold out houses around Australia.

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.
