This week we kick things off with Simon Donald, Part 1. He was the co-creator of The Viz. If you never heard of it then YouTube it, read it and then love it.
Simon is a hero in Newcastle (as describing a Geordie as a 'darling' of the city might get one's head punched in). His comedy career is incredible and the amount of laughs he has given is off the scale.
Now Simon is venturing into his solo tours performing his own characters.
Also he is flogging his autobiography. So buy it!
Thanks for listening to Part 1 of Simon Donald.
Check out Part 2 next week where we discuss more aspects of Viz and his illness.
