Sam is one of the most daring and unconventional comics in Australia, completely original and vastly absurd, he has one foot firmly planted into the soils of reality, and the other rooted deep into the psyche of being silly.
Sam is a multi award winning cult figure within the Australian comedy scene. He has collected awards and glowing reviews and played to sell out houses with his solo Melbourne Comedy Festival shows Tales of the Erotic Cat in 2006, The Sex & Science of Boredom in 2007, Where Can I Win a Bear Around Here? in 2008, and Sam Simmons In The Net Starring Sandra Bullock in 2009. Tales of the Erotic Cat picked up a prestigious nomination for the Barry Award for Most Outstanding Show and Where Can I Win A Bear Around Here? won the much respected Festival Director’s Choice Award.
From 2008, Sam has made Triple J radio his own. Having hosted the Weekday and Weekend Breakfast Show as well as Drive Shows, Sam is always entertain on the airwaves and as a result is one of the most popular presenters at the station.
Spreading further into the ABC, Sam is now a regular on JTV as a host, and is the star of the cult interstitial comedy series ‘The Urban Monkey with Murray Foote’.
