Stand-up Comedy

‘As funny with a microphone in his hand as he was with a pencil’ The Guardian


Simon Donald has been appearing as a stand-up comedian since 2005. He has written and performed seven Edinburgh Fringe shows. He often appears as a character comic as a number of different outrageous creations. The most popular of these is Barry Twyford, a hapless market research dogsbody whose surveys often pose more questions than they answer.

He appears as a compere, both at comedy clubs and events, lectures on the history of Viz Comic to arts and business courses and hosts cartoon workshops for younger students.
