PERFORMER, SPEAKER, COMEDIAN
Al Simmons is a creative genius whose charm and humanity have won over a legion of fans at theaters and festivals around the world. His highly original performances of profound wackiness and his array of off-the-wall inventions take the arts of Music and Comedy to unparalleled heights of hilarity.
Having open lines of communication is crucial and nothing breaks barriers better than a belly-laugh. Al Simmons has the ability to weave any theme into his performance and unite an audience by creating a group rapport with all attendees. Testimonials Gladly Recommend Him "When I first brought up the idea of using Al Simmons as our kick off entertainment for the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers conference I was met with a little resistance. They knew that he was a Juno award winning musician but they knew him more for his for children's work. I on the other hand had seen him work corporate events years ago. Immediately after he left the stage I had the very same people come up to me and say 'you were right for hiring him, he was perfect.' Al was able to unite the audience and create this amazing group rapport with all the attendees. I knew I made the right choice when I hired him but I received further confirmation when I looked around at the faces of all these adults singing and having a ball. He made me look good for hiring him and I'd gladly recommend him to any group who needs professional, high quality, after-dinner entertainment at their next corporate function." - Anders Boulanger, Entertainment Chair, 2012 Canadian Association of Public Speakers Convention Amazing Job "You did an amazing job...even beyond my personal expectations, which were very high to begin with. And people were talking about how appropriate and wonderful you were for the rest of the conference. You did an incredible job with the task of linking the conference human rights themes with the various artistic pieces in your performance, and you did so intellectually, sensitively and humorously...which made your performance entertaining, enlightening and highly meaningful. I couldn't help but notice the completely quiet rapt attention (except for the abundant laughter, of course!) during so much of your performance. I was delighted to see how deeply you affected everyone all eyes and ears were on you. And that spoke volumes about how wonderful your performance was. Thank you Al...you are a true artist!" - Linda Mlodzinski UNESCO Manitoba ASPnet Hilarious "The show was hilarious and was representative of the good natured values of our company. Was a great mark to BA's 75 years and I'm sure the show will be reflected upon with a smile and a laugh in coming years!" - Shea Robinson B.A. Robinson Co. Ltd.
