Headliner - Simon King

Simon King was born into an entertainment family that relocated to British Columbia, Canada from the South of England when he was quite young. He started acting at an early age primarily in live theater and has remained in show business since that time. After sojourns in improv and sketch Simon began aggressively pursuing stand up comedy in his early twenties.

Since that time he has been featured at many comedy festivals including: The Just For Laughs Festival,[1] The Vancouver International Comedy Festival,[2] The TBS Las Vegas Comedy Festival,[3] The Winnipeg Comedy Festival and The HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado. A veteran touring comic, he is not only a workhorse performer averaging nearly four hundred shows a year but also an extremely prolific writer. In addition to numerous film and television credits, in 2008 The Comedy Network and CTV filmed a one-hour special starring him for the popular series Comedy Now.[4] In early 2013 Simon recorded a second special, this one a half hour long, for the No Kidding series on Toronto-based IChannel.[5]Simon has been featured in The LA times,[6] the alternative arts paper the Georgia Straight,[7] The Hollywood Reporter and many others.

In November 2009 Uproar Entertainment signed Simon to an exclusive recording contract for his first full-length album titled UNFAMOUS.[8] It was recorded all in one take, no edits, at the Comedy Underground in Seattle on January 16, 2010. The album is currently in North American distribution as well as being available on iTunes. Tracks from UNFAMOUS are regularly featured on Sirius/XM satellite radio.

Simon is currently touring and can be heard via iTunes on his weekly podcast: What's Wrong With Simon King.
