With his infectious energy and huge stage presence, it is easy to see why Junior Simpson is a circuit favourite. Junior has a boundless joy and exuberance that has audiences hooked with hilarity. A true observational comic, Simpson finds his humour in the everyday and humdrum with anecdotes of his world travels as a comedian adding a personal originality to his set.
He has worked alongside Jo Brand, Rolf Harris, Frank Skinner and Jonathan Ross.
