The Fictionals Comedy Co. present award-winning improv comedy every Tuesday night at Cafe Deux Soleils. Next up: Pop-Up Comedy Jam featuring special guest Simon King!

An absolute force of nature on stage Simon King is the kind of dynamic, energetic and intelligent comedian that comes along perhaps once in a generation. With credits including: HBO, Just For Laughs, CBC, CTV, TBS, The Comedy Network, Fifteen Minutes With, and his numerous television and radio appearances, Simon is a veteran comedian with experience performing around the world. A relentless energy, whip smart material and lightning quick wit that moves him seamlessly from written material to improvisation will win you over but his intelligence and mind blowing will show you why Robin Williams has called him a “Truly gifted comedian.”
