About Simon Caine


“Flashes of ingenuity. If being anxious was an Olympic sport, Simon would win the gold” – Bruce Dessau, London Evening Standard – 3 stars

“Simon included his spectators in every aspect of the routine. Sometimes he would break out of routine to have a chat. This all added to the show’s success, which made Simon even more personable and helped us get inside his head – which I add was at times a satisfyingly scary place!” – MindShare Australia – 4 stars

“Fancy spending some with a whingeing Brit who awkwardly interrogates his history of social incompetence and anxiety? It’s more fun than it sounds.” – Adelaide Now – 4 stars


“Simon Caine produced a humdinger of a performance. After a delightfully loose preamble, Caine settled into a superb rhythm, combining well-crafted material with sharp improvisation.” – Three Week – 5 stars


“You were very funny. I genuinely loved the night. Amazing.” – Copstick (head comedy reviewer at the Scotsman Newspaper, 2017)


“That was awesome. I liked it… I don’t know why. But it was great. I’ll have you back” – Mike Manera (Piccadilly Comedy Club, 2016)

“What you’re doing is great… the problem is nobody understands it.” – Iain Coyle (Dave TV Comedy Commissioner, 2016)

“Really glad I got to see that. It was a really great set. You’re taking real and personal things and making them funny which isn’t easy to do. One of the two stand out sets of the night… and amazing crowd control” – Geoff Whiting (Mirth Control – 2016)


“The Martin Luther King Jr of comedy.” – Broadway Baby, 2015

“This is one of the few comedians to make me howl with laughter this year…” –  comedian Adam Bloom (2015)


“One of the best things I’ve seen this fringe. Charming, endearing and honest comedy which is genuinely funny – and family friendly too!” – Comedian Tom Appleton (2014).

“delicious witticisms” – Eric Heisserer (film director and screenwriter, 2014)

“It’s hard to tell when you’re joking and when you’re being serious” – Adam Kay from Amateur Transplants (2014)

“Keep an eye on what Simon does because in 3 years time everybody else will be trying to do it.” – Stu Goldsmith (2014)

“sharp writing” – Julia Chamberlain, Chortle (2014)
