Also known by his stagenames of Alan Parker: Urban Warrior and The League Against Tedium, Simon Munnery is a comedy writer and experimental standup comedian.The Observer newspaper called Simon, 'One of the most original and talented comedians in the country'. He's recently released two DVDs of his work and one of his songs, Grey Clouds - a take-off of The Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds- was featured on Annie Nightengale's CD Y4K.

He also appeared in Simon's surreal comedy series Attention Scum. Have a look.
We invited them out to Geneva for a tour of CERN in 2007 and they proved to be extremely informed and interested in physics and the work being done at CERN. And, it goes without saying, they were very funny, too. Listen to Part 1 of Kevin and Simon's Big Adventure via YouTube:
