Simon King brings his unique, intelligent and hilarious stand up comedy to the Rickshaw stage for one night only to tape his latest special FURIOUS. With a list of credits a mile long including: HBO, CTV, TBS, THE COMEDY NETWORK, CBC, SIRIUS RADIO, JUST FOR LAUGHS and THE WINNIPEG COMEDY FESTIVAL, Simon could have chosen to record anywhere but he picked Vancouver and we couldn’t be happier. As requested by the man himself, we kept the ticket prices as low as possible to make the show accessible to almost everyone. This is a great opportunity to come and see an emerging comedy superstar before he moves on to conquer the world stage. Dark, edgy, energetic and inspiring in addition to being funny as all hell, he’s a stand up like none you’ve ever seen. Definitely a force to be reckoned with in the comedy world, Simon has been melting faces and blowing minds throughout North America and the UK for years. Now it’s time to bring it all home for one incredible night of taking stand up comedy its very limits. If you’ve never seen Simon King before you owe it to yourself to catch one of the most intelligent and potentially significant comedians working today at the top of his game.

"Having seen Simon perform many times I have been incredibly impressed with his unique talent. From everything I have seen Simon is truly a gifted comedian."
- Robin Williams

"Finally, Simon King entered the room and, almost as soon as he started speaking, the crowd was roaring with laughter. And the laughter never quieted. King is pure genius.... He never comes off as arrogant, but simply remains likable. And when he topped of his time with a message to the audience about the way people need to be living their lives, it was a poignant moment that proved he cares about what he does. He doesn’t take the stage for granted. He uses it to make us laugh and make us think. And that comparison to George Carlin is not to be taken lightly. King could very well become as influential to comedy as Carlin was."

"It’s not very often a comedian comes along who can perform and write that well. Simon King is a rare talent."
- The Comedy Killers
