Simon Munnery first found his comedy feet hosting the critically acclaimed confrontational komedy kabaret Cluub Zarathustra in 1994.

From this showcase for unconventional stand-up, Munnery's best-known creations Alan Parker: Urban Warrior was born. The self-appointed spokesman for the dispossessed and prophet to the disconnected sought to smash the system with subversion, some placards and a spray can. Three series of Alan Parker's 29 Minutes of Truth were broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and Alan appeared in his own BBC2 show London Shouting , co-written by Father Ted creator Graham Lineham.

In 1996 Simon's League Against Tedium, dubbed by the Evening Standard as 'a one-man antidote to mediocrity' had a six-episode run on BBC Radio 1. This was followed by sell-out runs for The League at the Edinburgh Fringe, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Aspen Comedy Festival and the ICA in London.

Simon returned to TV as The League in 2000 with his BBC series Attention Scum, which was nominated for the prestigious Golden Rose of Montreaux. In 2003, Simon recorded Where Did It All Go Wrong? , a series of monologues for BBC Radio 4. A second series was commissioned the following year and in 2006 he contributed writings to the compilation 'Sit Down Comedy' alongside the likes of Arthur Smith, Stewart Lee and Jenny Eclair.

2007 is the fourth Edinburgh Fringe visit of Simon Munnery's AGM. Previous solo Fringe shows include I Am TV (Perrier nominated 1999), Noble Thoughts of A Noble Mind (2002), Trilogy (2003) and Buckethead: Phenomenon Anon And On (2004).
