Over his 45 year career Al Simmons has been known as a baggy-pants-slap-stick-style Vaudevillian, a Human Jukebox, a one-man-cast-of-thousands, a lightning-bolt of lunacy and the Thomas Edison of entertainers. His astounding gadgets, preposterous songs, impeccable comic timing and kooky take on classic vaudeville have thrilled and entertained fans of all ages. 

Juno Award winner Al Simmons’ highly original performances of profound wackiness and of off-the-wall inventions have taken the arts of Music and Comedy to unparalleled heights of hilarity. Young or old, you cannot fail to appreciate this man’s frenetic stage antics and mind-boggling lovableness.
This is a matinee show for the whole family!
