Kings of Comedy

Kings of comedy was born from the desperate need for a launching platform for emerging comedians to establish to take their career to another level. Since inception in 2015, Kings has slowly gained popularity by continuing to nurture talent and listen and learn from patrons feedback. There is a massive gap between those at the top and those on the way and we're bridging that gap. Your support of our room is a huge step in making that happen.  

With current plans to expand to Sydney, Adelaide and Gold Coast. Kings is fast pushing to be an industry leader here in Australia. 

Kings has now completed 4 Melbourne International Comedy Festival seasons and Simon has completed 3 solo shows 'Man vs Meth' highlighting his recovery from Methamphetamine addiction (See reviews below)
