|Get ready for four crazy weeks featuring the funniest local, national and international talent at the inaugural Brisbane Comedy Festival. Probably best known for his work with Triple J,The Sam Simmons Experience is one of the most surreal and original comedy shows you will ever see. Australia’s answer to Jim Carrey before movie stardom seduced him. He is a ball of spoteniaty and physical comedy, combined with music, style and a French sound engineer. This isn’t so much stand up comedy as|
highly evolved, witty performance art. As Simmons shares his first years working for Coles with down syndrome trolley boys, sexy KFC girls, would be magicians and a goth who worked in dairy wanting him to touch his fruche. There are no jokes, just observational humour and brilliant story telling from an unpredictable comic, whose body language has developed a stutter. Simmons has won numerous awards for his shows including the 2008 Barry Award for the most outstanding show at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and it is well deserved. See him once and never be the same again!
