PREVIEW: Simon Munnery @ Old Market, 2/2/2017

The Verse’s Csenge Krokovay previews Simon Munnery ahead of his show at the Old Market on the 2nd February.

After he last performed in Brighton with his show And Nothing But, multi award-winning comedian, Simon Munnery is back to the stage in the Old Market. Yes, he is on tour again, offering up his new comedy-show called Standing Still. Although the name doesn’t say much at first, the performer’s promise is a vivid night with an opening routine to die for. Don’t worry, knowing Simon’s comedies, I know everyone will get home safe, but no one will leave with empty hands.

Simon is a very experienced performer. One thing I really like in his comedy, besides being terribly funny, is that he is super multifarious. He is a performer, an inventor, musician, poet, and he makes up hilarious characters like Alan Parker, Urban Warrior or Buckethead. His comedy is diverse and really smart, more like theatre performance. There’s something in his show for everyone. Good news for the people who know his work, he promises to show up with four fresh skits. For those who don’t know him yet, check out our latest review of Simon Munnery here.

“A genuine innovator in the land of the samey, and an annual must-see for any comedy connoisseur” 

The Guardian
