Come and join this warm, clever and engaging stand-up in a night of insightful comedy as he re-interprets and re-defines manhood. Tickets start from just $20 and are available online at FringeTix or from the booth in Rundle Mall.
Simon Taylor's 1 man debate is really great, It was interactive comedy at its best, for me listening and taking the trip courtesy of Simons debate inside the male brain had some very funny deja-vu moments and some light bulb moments.
After reading James' review above I decided to go and see Simons show on Saturday 16th at 7:30pm with my 13 yr old son. Simon kept the audience entertained and participating from the first sentence throughout to the finale. Taking my teenage son was a father -son male bonding thing. The show is rated GA. But don't take your teenage sons mum with you if they are in denial, when it comes to their 13 yr olds actual knowledge base about the subject of sex or manhood. I left my wife at home as she is in denial and she cringes at fart jokes.
My son and I were sitting in the first row and Simon focused a few tailor made age appropriate comments and questions directly to him, much to my sons delight. My son laughed most of the way through, I think that there were only about 3 or 4 punch lines that went over his head, although during our bubbly discussion on the way home later that night that my sons innocence shone through a bit more as I realised he had been laughing at some of the interpretations for the wrong reason....or did I have the misunderstanding?....haha...We bumped into Simon later on after the show at one of the many interesting and exotic food stands within the Garden of Unearthly Delight precinct. My Son had a grin from ear to ear as we briefly gave him some positive feedback. As we walked further on my son said, I liked Simon, he was nice, he then asked if we could return to see his show again sometime before the festival closes. 9/10 from both of us.
Look Simon Taylor up on You Tube, his coffee skit is a fine example of his great talent.
