About simon

One of the most popular figures on the Irish comedy scene, Simon has headlined pretty much every club worth playing. Well known for his excellent hosting skills, he was the resident MC of the award winning Capital Comedy Club in the landmark Ha’Penny Bridge Inn for almost a decade, before assuming hosting duties in Chaplin’s Comedy Club. He is now host of the home of Irish Comedy in The International Comedy Club every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Videos of his crowd work have been a huge hit on social media and have clocked up hundreds of thousands of views.

Simon has toured all over Ireland with the likes of Joanne McNally, Neil Delamere, and PJ Gallagher including opening for them in Dublin’s prestigious Vicar Street. A festival regular, he was the first comedian to ever play the Oxegen festival and has featured at the last 7 Vodafone and Paddy Power Comedy Festivals in the Iveagh Gardens, not to mention headlining all over the UK and even Europe.

A prolific writer as well, Simon wrote for the hit panel show Clear History on RTE 2 and currently has his own sitcom in development. The most in demand joke writer in the country, he regularly writes for some of Ireland’s biggest comedians.
