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.
Joyous on the radiowaves, Sam has made Triple J his own. 2008/09 has seen him at the helm of the Weekend Breakfast Show as well as weekday Breakfast and Drive Shows. Spreading further into the ABC, Sam is now a regular on JTV as a host, as well as creating his own sketches and interviewing the latest bands.
