Brentwood, 12.45pm: 23°C, broken clouds

Ben Simmons

I'm an actor, comedian, writer and director and one half of a comedy double act - Simmons and Simmons, with my Dad, Keith.

We have performed in pantomimes, summer shows on cruise ships and in cabaret all over the UK and abroad for many years.

I co-founded and compere the comedy impro group, Shotgun Impro, who have performed on the London circuit for the last 12 years.

I also present an improvised podcast, We've Got No Idea What We're Gonna Say, with my great friend Nick Murphy. Together they we have reached almost 50 episodes.

The Show That Goes Like This is my first foray into radio - I'm really enjoying bringing my sense of humour, unpredictability, general ridiculousness and good songs to the airwaves every Tuesday evening.
