Simon Donald, Internationally renowned lavatory humourist and co-founder of Viz Comic, made history alongside his brother and a school friend by turning their playground antics into the notorious sales phenomenon of the late 20th century. Their magazine and its remarkable story is celebrated in Donald’s highly rated autobiography, HIM OFF THE VIZ, which Simon will sell after the show. He has worked in stand-up as a character comedian since 2005 and appears as a compere, both at comedy clubs and events, he lectures on the history of Viz Comic to arts and business courses and hosts cartoon workshops for younger students.
