The Laughter Zone: Simon Fox + Danny Ward + Junior Simpson*

5th August 2011


Tonight's Laughter Zone sees Simon Fox, Danny Ward and Junior Simpson leaping to our stage for an evening of colossal stand-up entertainment.

Simon Fox’s sharp material, rapid-fire delivery and relaxed stage presence have established an enviable reputation that has seen him playing at The Comedy Store and Jongleurs, to gigs in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai. His television credentials include performances on The Jonathan Ross Show, Wogan, Ready, Steady, Cook and The Frank Skinner Show, even with dame Helen Mirren!

"A powerful stand-up" – The Stage and Television Today

Danny Ward is one of the new breed of comics with a high energy set not reliant on smut or swearing to get easy laughs, but rather with a well-honed and up-beat observational style that is as hilarious as it is endearing. He is booked at clubs across the UK from University gigs to 300 capacity Arts Centres as tour support to many big name acts such as Shappi Khorsandi and Mike Wilmot. Last year saw Danny performing to returning troops as part of the Decompression Tour in Cyprus for CSE.

As a performer on the PBH Free Fringe: "If there is better stand-up elsewhere for free then I want to know about it, because it really would have to be world class to top this show. Danny Ward's observational humour is brilliantly delivered ... This is top quality stand up that should have filled the venue twice over. I implore you to go and see it!" – Edinburgh Festival.

Junior Simpson (having survived being called ''the new Lenny Henry'' - he's much funnier than that) will be a familiar face from the world of TV, both from the likes of The Real McCoy, as one of the team captains alongside Suggs on Night Fever and as host and star of two of his own series, In the Dark with Junior Simpson and The Hit Man, both for Channel 5. He has also worked with the likes of Jo Brand, Rolf Harris, Frank Skinner and Jonathan Ross. Simpson headlines at clubs across Britain as well as performing in South Africa and Australia on a regular basis. He has performed at festivals all over the world including Reading, Brighton and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
