Aaron Simmonds

10:15 pm on Sunday 10th July 2022

The Comedy Club - Sponsored by Beckhoff


Aaron Simmonds has been failing to stand up for 32 years, luckily he is far better at comedy than standing up.

“A comedian going places”*

He has a unique perspective on life, usually of people’s belly buttons, which gives him stories to tell and a sore neck.

*Places that are wheelchair accessible

Aaron was a finalist at the BBC New Comedian of the Year and won Jewish comedian of the year 2017 (Both of which were fully wheelchair accessible)

His debut show at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival was nominated for Best Comedy Show by Broadway World UK and was a finalist for The Amused Moose Best Show.

As seen on The Russell Howard Hour (Sky1) , The Stand Up Sketch Show (ITV2), Guessable (Comedy Central) and Rob Beckett’s Undeniable (Comedy Central)

“What’s most notable about Simmonds is his skill as a raconteur, never losing the audience for a moment.” – Chortle

“Easy to see why he’s an award winner.” – The Scotsman
