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.
“He’s nothing less than a genius” – The Guardian
“There are more brilliant ideas in one of Simon Munnery’s shows than most comics will manage in a lifetime” –The Times
“Genius is a grossly overused and even more grossly misused word – which I am about to use. I think Simon Munnery might just be a comic genius”- ***** The Scotsman
The comic had one of the most innovative and original shows at the Fringe with his character The Herbert who mixed props, clowning, mime and silliness to create an hour that was universally acclaimed.
“no explanation can do justice to the experience of watching this ebullient lunacy” ****1/2 – Chortle
“Finding the words to describe it is a struggle; finding it amusing was definitely not” **** – The List
A one-man sketch powerhouse.
“you just have to submit to this force of nature, until it deposits you, dizzy but exhilarated, close to where you started” **** – Chortle
One of the most exciting, daring and imaginative acts on the circuit.
