At 31 Simon McKinney has had a somewhat peculiar and intriguing life thus far. One with diverse and interesting facets that until now have been stewing away in the back of his comedy mind and now, finally, make their way out onto the stage.

Simon’s natural curiosity for the peculiar things in life have seen him become a favourite with New Zealand audiences, and with “My Time as a Talking Fish” we see the result of his take on his own growth as a person and as a comedian.

One of Simon’s first jobs was as the voice of Hamish, the Scottish talking fish on kids TV show “Squirt”. Thus started Simon’s career of making people laugh. The stories of his development from talking fish to a proper grown up form the basis for this retrospective look at Simon’s progress through life. Having been a Power Rangers baddie, a Burger King toy he has now gone back to where he began, as the voice of a talking dog on kids TV

Many people know Simon as the voices guy having seen him on TV2’s Big Comedy Gala, TV3’s AotearoHA and Comedy Central’s Bits, that he is and so much more. Whether it’s the Queen, the check out lady or a Glaswegian work mate, it all started with Hamish the talking fish.

And now Simon has grown up. His astute observations and sublime characterization form the foundation for a comedian who has matured and come of age. Don’t be fooled by the voices, this is a comedian of the highest quality that consistently delivers brilliant stand up and is a guaranteed laugh any day of the week.

Following on from the success of his 2008 show “Land of the Long White Clown” and his 2009 instalment “Tells a Bit of a Yarn” the 2007 NZ Comedy Guild Best Male Comedian brings his latest hour of perfectly pitched, hilarious and inspired stand up.
