2019Simon's movements and acting are so expressive and detailed I can't help but be drawn into everything.
Samantha Cartwright

2019Simon Shaw, who plays the obsequious, childish Ed, taps every vein with poison, and does so unapologetically.
Ian Kirkland

2019Shaw is terribly convincing...and...no hesitation in making us deeply uncomfortable.
Rhona Mackay

2019It’s all compelling, if slightly strange, and certainly extremely unnerving piece of viewing. Shaw absolutely lives the character.

2018Simon is an amazing character actor and committed to the role with great passion.

2017An extremely talented and professional actor. Very prepared, turned up in good time, wordperfect, and very easy to work with.

2015Simon Shaw’s pipe-smoking moustachioed Mr Smith was hilariously observed, with great touches of clowning, silent comedy and high-pitched folly.

    About me

    I am a character actor. I have vast experience in musical theatre, pantomimes, literature classics and comedies.

    I trained at East Berkshire College in Performing Arts and at the University of Roehampton achieving first class honours on the BA Drama, Theatre & Performance Studies course. I am on spotlight, a fast learner of lines, DBS checked and I have bases in Berkshire, London & Edinburgh. Last year, I brought in my one man show 'Under the Floorboards', to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and will be heading up again to Edinburgh next year.

    Currently I am working at 'Fright Nights Fearstival' in The Fearstival Arena at Thorpe Park as a sinister magician.

    For more information of my show 'Under the Floorboards' click here: www.underthefloorboards.online/

    Acting experience

    - Writer/Director/Manager of my one man show 'Under the Floorboards'.
