Simon King invades Agassiz

Canadian funny man has earned praise within industry

One of the funniest comedians on the circuit is on his way to Agassiz.

Simon King is bringing his unique, intelligent and hilarious stand up comedy to Jimmy’s Pub for one night only, tonight at 8:30 p.m.

“Simon King is a really funny dude,” says David Mawhinney, manager of the pub.

That’s a sentiment shared by comedians and critics alike. He’s even garnered praise from funny man Robin Williams.

“Having seen Simon perform many times I have been incredibly impressed with his unique talent. From everything I have seen Simon is truly a gifted comedian,” Williams has said.

King is just the first of a long line up planned for Jimmy’s Pub, which is under new management recently. Mawhinney runs an entertainment business and has been working in booking for many years.

“There’s going to be lots of neat things coming this way,” he assures.

Tonight’s show is a great opportunity to see an emerging comedy superstar in a small and intimate venue before he moves on to conquer the world stage. Dark, edgy, energetic and inspiring, he’s a stand up like none you’ve ever seen. Definitely a force to be reckoned with in the comedy world, King has been melting faces and blowing minds throughout North America and the UK for years.

Some of his credits include HBO, CTV, TBS, The Comedy Network, CBC, Sirius Radio, Just for Laughs and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival.

Also on stage tonight are comedians Richard Thompson and Susan Hansen. Thompson is a recent UFV Theatre Dept. graduate who has recently turned to comedy, said Mawhinney.

Tickets are $10 at the door.
