Simon Kaufman circuits the comedy scene from local clubs to national gigs. Simon’s improvisational style mirrors the accidental genius of that one kid we all knew back in the 5th grade who suffered from severe Attention Deficit Disorder/Hyper Activity and made us all end up in detention for laughing uncontrollably during classroom lectures. Simon’s own AD/HD impels him to engage in random audience conversations and hilariously sporadic freestyle raps. Yes… He raps!
Simon began his comedy career in the second grade principal’s office of the Seattle Hebrew Academy. He was the class clown and resident crack-up who performed regularly on the school bus, in the lunch room, and during detention.
Being based in Manhattan allows Simon to perform nightly in some of New York City’s hottest venues. He founded and produces “The Simon Kaufman Comedy Hotline” each month at The Ashford & Simpson Sugar Bar. You can catch his act monthly at Gotham Comedy Club. He recently appeared in the season premier of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” on Bravo network.
