Simon Farnaby (born 2 April 1973) is an English comedy actor and writer in television, theatre and film.
Farnaby is a long-time member of The Mighty Boosh supporting cast, having had roles both in their TV series and co-starring in the quasi-spinoff movie Bunny and the Bull. He is also well-known for his numerous similarly offbeat characters in the CBBC live-action series of Horrible Histories, notably including Caligula and the Grim Reaper.
Along with the five other members of the Horrible Histories starring cast, Farnaby is also the co-creator, -writer and -star of Yonderland, an eight-part family fantasy comedy series that premiered on SkyOne on November 10 2013. He will co-star with the same troupe in Bill, a BBC-produced comedy film based loosely, Horrible Histories-style, around the life of William Shakespeare, due for release in 2014.
In 2013 he presented a Channel 4 documentary entitled Richard III: The King in the Car Park, tracing the discovery and subsequent identification of the remains of the last Plantagenet king.
