Sam Simmons: About The Weather

Australia’s maestro of suburban absurdism is back.

A man is standing next to another man, they have nothing in common and nothing to speak of, perhaps they can talk about the weather.

‘Relentlessly silly and hysterically funny.’
Time Out

‘A fantastically funny hour of lunacy… little short of perfect.’
★★★★ Telegraph

‘Terrific.’
★★★★ Guardian

Sam doesn’t do things by halves – enter his world and you’re in for quite an experience. Pitched somewhere in the no-man’s land between psychotic breakdown, ground-breaking genius and outer space, a comedic trip with Sam will explore the furthest reaches of humanity – his and yours.
