Review by Jonathan Graham
This is quite a confronting, sentimental and moving show. You find yourself laughing not out of pity, but realisation I think. His humour is quite relate-able.
Simon has turned his experience of a bleak existence and attempted suicide into a finely crafted, humourous reflection.
You will be captivated at times by his story, which I think lies inside all of us, and then suddenly be jolted back by a punchline to the fact that you are sitting in a comedy show.
It's a show that certainly pushes the boundaries of what you'd expect at a standup gig and also a brilliant wake up call to the rest of the world.
