Simon Evans is a Stand-Up Comedian, Broadcaster, Awards Host and After-Dinner Speaker.
His TV credits include appearances on BBC One’s Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, and Channel 4’s Stand Up for the Week.
On BBC Radio 4, he has is own series Simon Evans Goes to Market. On this show, Simon delights audiences with his witty and insightful take on the unpromising comic territory of economics.
He is also a regular on Radio 4’s The News Quiz, and wrote and hosted eight series of the news satire, The Way It Is.
Simon has performed sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival for several years, and in 2007 had a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre in London. Time Out made it their critic’s choice of the week, saying “Wonderfully dry and exquisitely ascerbic Evans is an odd and sublime talent“.
Having headlined many times at every comedy club in the country, from London’s Comedy Store to the Glasgow Stand, Simon Evans now focuses almost exclusively on private and corporate events for his live work.
He performs regularly at corporate events, hosting many awards ceremonies, his style well suited to moving from comedy to autocued presentations, enlivened with well-judged ad-libs.
Simon is also an in-demand writer, providing material for TV stars such as Dara O’Briain, Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr, Lee Mack and Marcus Brigstocke – though obviously, he keeps the best stuff back for himself!
