Simon Stanley Ward has been performing almost non-stop since his teenage years. Over the last decade, Simon has been playing his original music with his band The Shadows of Doubt in pubs, music venues, theatres and festivals in London, across the UK and in Northern Spain.
Described as a country singer at heart with a streak of the surreal running through him, his live show is engaging, energetic and constantly evolving. At its best, his performances can be gut-wrenchingly moving and moments later silly, self-deprecating and hilarious. His musical influences come from far a wide and include Elvis, Bob Dylan and John Prine.
Simon started dipping his toe into the world of stand-up in 2016, when he formed comedy trio Rasputin’s Lunchbox and later became a solo act. In 2017, he was a finalist in two UK comedy finals: the NATY’s (New Act of the Year) with Rasputin’s Lunchbox at the Leicester Square Theatre, and the UK Music Comedy Awards at the Lyric Theatre as a solo act.
In 2017, he performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and comedy festivals in Leicester, Liverpool, Hastings and Brighton as well as becoming a regular at the Camden Comedy Club. Simon has also curated lots of music and comedy events working alongside performers such as Kevin Eldon, Simon Munnery, Richard Herring, Cally Beaton, John Hegley and Robin Ince.
