Luton’s lapsed choirboy Junior Simpson is the comedy world’s most exciting new recruit. Having honed his material and performance skills on the British black comedy circuit. Junior is now much in demand both nationally and in the top London clubs. Junior’s personal worldview, performed with style and confidence, is enjoyed by every audience. Junior hosted the game show, ‘In the Dark With Junior Simpson’ for Channel 5.
1998 saw Junior deliver his second successful solo show at the Edinburgh Festival. He is currently fronting a campaign for ‘I Can’t Believe It’s not Butter’ as Issac Divine!
A vigorous, raconteur and vibrant mimic with lots to say. His set is compact yet complex containing everything from a searing satire of Ragamuffin music, impressions of Martin Luther King, Sean Connery and a Pentecostal preacher to a hilarious, yet poignant, routine about his parents’ reaction to his debut on BBC2’s The Real McCoy.
A top-class performer, Junior’s quick wit and irresistible energy are unforgettable and truly addictive, making him a real favourite for corporate shows.
