Simons unique skills have seen him become recognized as New Zealand’s leading stand up impressionist and a much sought after comedian for both live, touring and corporate performances. His impressions of TV celebrities, the famous and infamous and of course his iconic kiwi characters, the “kiwi lady”, “that drunk guy” are now so well recognised they themselves are mimicked by the NZ public.
