'It makes me wanna have sex with a full-on run-up'

Sam Simmons chooses his comedy favourites

Solo advert

I remember this advert from my childhood in Perth, I didn’t have a father figure in my life, but for sporadically random 30 second bursts, I had enough testosterone thrust in my eyeballs to continue to influence my look to this day, I’m a SOLO MAN.

Major Lazer: Pon De Floor

This is the funniest film clip since anything by Nine Inch Nails, it’s directed by Eric Wareheim (Tim &Eric) it’s so violently sexual, it makes me wanna have sex with a full-on run-up, but I imagine it would be too dangerous and I may damage my goolies, or her pelvic floor might get wrecked.

Its also amazing music.

Peter Russell Clarke Bloopers

Peter Russell Clarke was the equivalent of a bearded less lispy Jamie Oliver from back in the late 70s early 80s,

This is his blooper reel, its incredibly profane.

Kingswood Country

This is a classic Australian ‘kinda racist’ TV show from the 80s, I always got disappointed when nothing happened to the girl riding the bike.

Look Around You: Sulphur

This. Is. Just.Perfect.

Jenny the pug

If any clip was to encapsulate what I try to do on stage, this is it, profound, inhumane and very stupid.
