Multi-award winning comedian, Sam Simmons is one of the most daring and unconventional comics out there. Completely original and vastly absurd, he has one foot firmly planted into the soils of reality, and the other rooted deep into the psyche of being silly. Sam is the only comic to have won the top comedy awards here and in Australia for his 2015 show Spaghetti for Breakfast.
