This month:


Internationally renowned lavatory humourist and co-founder of Viz Comic, Simon made history alongside his brother by turning their playground antics into the notorious sales phenomenon of the late 20th century. He has worked in stand-up, both as himself and as a character comedian since 2005, writing and performing 10 one man shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. He appears as a compere, both at comedy clubs and events, lectures on the history of Viz Comic to arts and business courses and hosts cartoon workshops for younger students.

Simon has had a long career as a media pundit, beginning on Carlton TV’s debate programs in the early 1990s and progressing to the BBC’s I Love the 1970s, followed by numerous talking head shows including Channel 4’s 100 Greatest and Channel 5’s Top Tens.
