Episode 16 - Simmi Areff

Simmi Areff is a comedian, podcaster, and maverick. The dude is living that Frank Sinatra life and doing things his way, and he's finding success doing so. His podcast Lesser Known Somebodies is one of the most popular in South Africa , and his one man show Lesser Known Somebody was picked up by Showmax after being made for just R9k, so there are more than a few lessons to be learned from this one.

I enjoy Simmi's honesty as much as I enjoy when he's full of shit, and we go back a long way, so this episode has plenty of both from both sides. We dive deep on SA comedy, podcasting, our personal lives, and so much more. 

You can find all things Simmi on his website:
