One of the most daring and unconventional comics in Australia, Sam Simmons, comes to Soho for his London debut. Fail is an extraordinary, vibrant and surreal exploration of a bad day and discovering reasons to be cheerful from the multiaward winning maestro of suburban absurdism.

‘A masterpiece of surreality, silliness and sadness wrapped up in a comedy performance of such passion and complexity that it approaches genius’


‘A cult in the making’

Scotland on Sunday

‘The most absurdly crazy world orbiting the Fringe, featuring some of the most original comic concepts and laugh out loud moments of any Edinburgh show in the past 20 years.’


‘When held against the rules of comedy super stardom, Simmons is a lawless gent indeed. Through laughter he will seduce you into his dinky, intimate underside.’

The Age, Melbourne

‘Made me want to leap to my feet and scream “Genius!” in an outrageous French accent.’

Three Weeks

‘An hour-long onslaught all right, and frequently hilarious’
