He has worked with a variety of top actors, among them Richard Todd, Jon Pertwee, Wayne Sleep and Kathy Staff (Nora Batty in Last of the Summer Wine).

He also appeared with Noel Edmunds in his chaotic celebrity Gotchas on the popular House Party show.

Simon’s latest show, Shouting in the Evenings, is to be presented at St Saviour’s Church, Walmer, at 7pm on Friday, September 8.

He has a host of tales to tell of performing in live theatre. He will also relate the fun, frolics and even danger of backstage life on tours, television, repertory and repertoire.

He is assisted by pianist Neil Wright, so the audience can expect a sprinkling of songs and sketches during this lively one-hour show.

This performance is in aid of Friends of Walmer Parish Churches.

Tickets, which include refreshments, in advance from 01304 366605 or 01304 362597.
