‘One of the all time great British stand-ups’ (Stewart Lee) performs a truly unique stand-up show. Using William Blake’s poem (B-side to the English national anthem) and The Fall’s take on it as a springboard, Simon endeavours to serve up satire, comedy and poetry with one eye on the distant past, and the other locked laser-like on the future. As he says, it’s clearly a recipe for disaster, but what’s wrong with that? Something will come of it and you can call it art.
