His latest show 2019/20 was in Darlington at the Hippodrome theatre for top Panto producers "Qdos" winning him rave reviews with critics & audiences alike.

Reviews:

"The Darlington Hippodrome panto never disappoints in terms of humour and panto magic. Walker is excellent, with his panto-perfect jokes, facial expressions, and impressive tongue-twisters." Northern Echo.

 

"The person who deserves the top credit and carries almost the entire show is Phil Walker as Simple Simon. As soon as he appears Walker immediately strikes up a fantastic rapport with the audience and his daft antics, funny faces and the way he delivers his jokes (some old, some new, some borrowed and the occasional one that’s slightly blue) are all superb. Whether he is miming an entire conversation in song sound bites, telling the audience of his trip to the supermarket or dancing like he just doesn’t care, this is a star turn that won’t be forgotten in a hurry." Reviews Hub.

"...and the utterly fabulous Phil Walker as Simple Simon. Walker's prowess for numbskull comedy in the tongue-twisting scene is extremely amusing." British Theatre Guide.
