Description

Having played Daddy Pig in Peppa Pig, when Philip became a dad surely there was only one expert to turn to for parenting advice? Yes, that’s right, you’re not misreading this; Philip really did play Daddy Pig in Peppa Pig (the stage production, not the TV show, don’t get carried away!). Join Philip for an hour of award-winning stand-up comedy about dating, parenthood and, of course, Peppa Pig… just don’t bring the kids! Jewish Comedian of the Year 2015. BBC New Comedian Shortlist nominee. Writer for Mock the Week. 'Never less than hilarious' (The Stage).

A delightful hour exploring the perils and pleasures of parenthood. Plus you really don’t need to be a Pepa Pig fan. Really recommended.

Saw this and loved it! Slick and clever show which makes you laugh lots but with pathos too. Almost full house the day I was there, and should be every day. Parenting well discussed and the whole rigmarole of the pigs too

This is an excellent hour of stand-up comedy, with an unexpected ending.

Packed full of confident jokes, with some vulnerable truths behind them. I came expecting some lighthearted fun and wasn't disappointed, but was delighted that his message also packed a punch.

Essential comedy viewing for comedy fans - especially parents. Philip Simon combines his own experiences as a dad trying to make sense of parenting with slick stand up delivery. Brilliant observations of the weird world of Peppa Pig. Do go and see this show!
