Aaron Simmonds has been failing to stand up for 32 years; luckily he is far better at comedy than standing up. Aaron has appeared on A-Z Horror Stories (Sky Studios), Russell Howard Hour (Sky), Undeniable (Comedy Central) and Guessable (Comedy Central) and has been heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio Scotland. Aaron offers sharply-observed comedy which is grounded in his disability, but is by no means limited by it.
Aaron performed his critically-acclaimed debut shows, Disabled Coconut and Hot Wheels, at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 and 2022. He was an Amused Moose Comedy Award Best Show finalist and was nominated for Best Comedy Show in the Broadway World UK Edinburgh Fringe Awards in 2019.
With his writing partner Jon Stapley, Aaron reached the final of BBC Comedy’s Galton & Simpson Comedy Writing Bursary competition in 2020.
Aaron is also in high demand in the corporate circuit, having hosted and performed at many events and receiving many positive testimonials.
To his core, Aaron is a circuit comedian and performs at Comedy Clubs across the country, performing at the UK’s top nights such as The Comedy Store, Just The Tonic, Screaming Blue Murder, Glee and many more.
