There seemed to be a handful of other shows happening in the venue. I knew the show would be small, but when we got there it was literally a handful of people, with 3-4 little rows and a tiny stage at the front, ensuring it would be intimate!
It's a one-man show where Simon acts out many different characters, which was impressive. The ability to change voice and also create so many characters demonstrated an extensive imagination.
He weaved the story of a boy who doesn't like tomato sauce into an adventure full of villains, catapults, politics and literature references. Without spoiling too much and just to give you a taste, the main character Max goes to a school called Optimus Primary and Vladamir Putin makes an appearance.
If you're not familiar with pop culture, you might miss a few of his jokes but overall his show is full of quirks and energy. I could easily imagine his wild story appearing on something like The Mighty Boosh or Adventure Time - hopefully that gives you a bit of an idea of the whacky show that is to come.
