The very talented Simon Taylor’s enthusiasm for the human mind turns into a comedy show about morality, happiness, language and love. Simon Taylor is a Melbourne-bred stand-up comic. He graduated in psychology at The University of Melbourne and went on to become a full time entertainer. Love is one of the most beautiful experiences one can have and Simon discovers that people can be attracted to others because of their personality or simply because they share similar letters in their names.
