“a breathlessly inventive psycho-comedy that thrives off Simmons’s warped whimsicality…a montage of elliptically surreal, jarringly abrupt vignettes that cumulatively suggest a series of The Mighty Boosh run through a shredder.” ★★★★★ The Independent The multi award-winning maestro of suburban absurdism is back. Sam Simmons returns home to Sydney after taking the Edinburgh Fringe by storm.
The only nominee for the Academy Award of the comedy world from across the pond he joins only a handful of Australians to be recognized on the world stage in this way. Sam won
fans, sold out shows and walked away with more rave reviews than he knows what to do with. He describes the experience as “like being high fived by Robert Deniro whilst I’m riding on the back of white tiger wearing a silver cape gorging on lobster and champagne.”
