Described by the Guardian as one of “comedy’s enduring eccentrics” Simon Munnery has been a pioneer of alternative comedy for over 20 years. His work includes winning the prized Golden Rose of Montreux for his wonderful TV series Attention Scum, appearances on The Alternative Comedy Experience & Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle and pretending to be Banksy’s Lawyer.
