Book Simon Evans and you’re getting one of the most intelligent and sharp live performers in the country (that’ll be him winning Celebrity Mastermind in 2012, then). Simon has an acerbic, sometimes caustic wit, that revels in his (entirely ironic) sense of superiority over most of the world. Subtle, sarcastic and smart, Simon takes uncompromising aim at life, organisations, and people from the regions. But it’s all shot through with the knowingness and self-deprecation that has made him such a regular hit on the UK comedy circuit and at the Edinburgh Fringe and Montreal festivals.
He’ll Teach You a Thing or Two
Amongst a host of TV appearances, Simon has been a guest on Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow, Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week. Simon’s writing credits include: Lee Mack’s sit-com Not Going Out; 8 Out Of 10 Cats; and the panel show ‘Argumental’ (which he also co-created). His Radio 4 series about money: ‘Simon Evans Goes To Market’, is very funny and very informative (as Simon says, ‘if nothing else, you’ll start to understand why you’re broke’). Oh, and Simon’s other skills include juggling and writing erotic fiction (but not necessarily at the same time).
