Philip simon has established himself as a regular rehearsal guest on BBC's Mock The Week.

As a warm up artist Philip has a very relaxed style which helps to centre an audience. Although fairly new to the TV warm up industry he has a firm understanding of how to control his audience as he has established himself amongst the UK comedy circuit's top compere / hosts.

Industry Quotes:

'Philip Simon is never less than hilarious' (The Stage')

'Polished performer who makes everyday subjects funny, even though we sometimes may be embarassed to laugh at his subject 'matter. Excellent stuff...Superb stage presence, very professional and a little bit naughty!' (Alan Sellers, Great Comedy Nights)

'A delightfully polished performer with a flair for observational humour. His twisted take on the everyday has seen him become established as a darn fine opening act with a laconic delivery that is a joy to behold.' (Anthony J Brown, Stage Fright Comedy)

'Philip Simon’s set is a joy. A wry observation of life as a nice Jewish boy...Very funny indeed.' (Cotswold Comedy Club)
