Simon Emanuel is a Welsh stand up comic, TV presenter and radio personality who is working live all over the UK and Europe. He is also one of BBC Sesh's bst-loved stars. Starting in 2008 he has had a hugely successful live career working with some of the biggest names on the comedy circuit and appearing at most of the top clubs nationally and internationally. His manic energy, quick wit, far flung observations and abstract delivery of ridiculous punch lines make him a firm favourite wherever he goes.
In 2012 after a successful fringe festival he moved his comedy stylings to Norway to be part of the English speaking comedy scene where he was the house MC for The Oslo Comedy Clubs for a ten month period. During this time he moved regularly around the Scandinavian scene doing live work in Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Upon his return to the UK in 2013 Simon was awarded the Welsh Unsigned Stand Up of the year award. He has supported the likes of Alan Davies on tour and is a sought after name at most of the top clubs nationally and internationally.
