Simon Cotter Corporate Comedian and Emcee
Simon Cotter Bio
After achieving success as an executive for a prominent real estate company, ascending the corporate ladder from top sales person to that of a top management person, Simon B. Cotter set his sights on a new profession: Comedy. Drawing from his business experience Cotter was determined to achieve the same success…making people laugh.
It didn’t take long for Cotter to become one of the most popular and highly requested comics on the college circuit. For four years straight Simon Cotter was entertaining over 50,000 students a year across the country with his unique comedic style. Inevitably, due to his immense popularity within the college market, Simon B. Cotter quickly became a success off-campus as well.
Simon then discovered the conference market, or it discovered him. A surprise hit with every audience, each engagement inspired another. His popularity with corporations and associations is due in part, to his rejection of going for the cheap laugh based on vulgarity, race, or gender. Instead he’s a storyteller delighting audiences with his razor sharp wit and unique perception of life’s day to day events, and many absurdities. Simon writes his own material, choosing from a vast repertoire of original jokes and anecdotes and he always creates a few just for the occasion.
Simon has performed and toured worldwide including: Hong Kong, Germany, China, Sweden, U.K. Holland, Jamaica, Egypt, The United Arab Emirates, South Africa and all over North America. Winner of multiple awards including “Canada’s Comedian of the Year” award, Cotter’s has received rave reviews from everywhere he’s been. Simon’s comedic talents have been featured on The Comedy Network, the BBC, CBC, CTV and he’s performed a number of times on an “Evening at the Improv,” and is a favourite at the world’s largest international comedy festival ” The Just for Laughs Festival” in Montreal.
