Simmi Areff is a new face on the comedy scene but making huge impressions on crowds. People have described Simmi as a younger version of Freddy Mercury...except with straighter teeth. Simmi recently was a regular at the Catalina Festival for the Comedy Revolution and has shared the stage with Marc Lottering at the Wow Comedy Jamz at the Durban playhouse. He has also opened for John Vlismas, Cokey Falkow and Riaad Moosa for their solo shows and has shared the stage with many other great comedians. He is a regular performer at Cool Runnings the underground. He's an effervescent New Age Muslim act with great charisma and can be heard across KZn on east coast radio's Big Breakfast show.
