We’ve got a bumper of a bill for you this month at the Prince of Wales.
Top of the shop is SIMON EMANUEL. Simon’s frenecitc pace and style make him highly watchable.
Starting in 2008 he has had a successful live career working with some of the biggest names on the comedy circuit and appearing at most of the top clubs nationally and internationally.
His manic energy, quick wit, far flung Observations and abstract delivery of ridiculous punch lines make him a firm favourite wherever he goes.
In 2012 after a successful fringe festival he moved his comedy stylings to Norway to be part of the English speaking comedy scene where he was the house MC for The Oslo Comedy Clubs for a ten month period, During this time he moved regularly around the Scandinavian scene doing live work in Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
Upon his return to the UK in 2013 Simon was awarded the Welsh Unsigned Stand Up of the year award, He then went on to appear on Rhodd Gilberts BBC Wales Radio show and was selected to support Alan Davies on the final day of Cardiff Comedy Gala at the prestigious Cardiff Millennium centre.
In 2014 Simon was named on the Wales Online list of “Top welsh comics to keep your eye on at the fringe” and since March 2015 he has been a regular guest on BBC Radio Wales’s “The Jamie Owen show” where he offers his unique views on weeks news and current affairs.
In 2016 after a few guest spots for the Channel Simon started writing and presenting for the sky channel “Made in Cardiff” working on a weekly show “Bad Press” with fellow comic Ignacio Lopez, They have also worked closely on other programmes including the entertainment show “The Lowdown” and the live comedy show “Live at the Glee”

The night is held together by MC DYLAN JONES. “A playful, subversive comic writer who’s assured delivery allows him to navigate the most treacherous topics. A strong, audience focused performer who’s daring style ensures that no two live events are the same while making sure that all of them are memorable”.
And how much does such a fine evening packed with top quality comedy cost? Nothing. That’s it. You heard. Nowt. We pass the hat at the end of the show, and if you’ve enjoyed yourselves we welcome donations.
