Simon Evans is one of the UK’s most respected and established comedians. He is a regular on TV and radio and particularly popular on the corporate and after dinner circuit.
His TV credits include BBC One’s Live at the Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, BBC Two’s Mock the Week and a regular on Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week. On BBC Radio 4, Simon Evans Goes to Market, which was re-commissioned for a fifth series, had audiences delighted in his witty and insightful take on the unpromising comic territory of commodities, trading and wealth.
Other BBC Radio 4 appearances include The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive. He is also the only comedian to have appeared on both University Challenge – the Professionals, and Celebrity Mastermind (which he won – specialist subject Sir Ernest Shackleton). Simon has also appeared on Question Time.
Simon’s live tour shows such as Leashed and Genius have sold out theatres around the country and garnered superlative reviews from national and comedy press. Dominic Maxwell described him as ‘demonically dry’, William Cook as ‘sublime’, and Chortle as ‘an evil delight’.
