Simon 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 credits include Live at the Apollo (BBC1), Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow (BBC1), Stand Up for the Week, (Channel 4), The News Quiz (R4) and Simon Evans Goes to Market (R4).
Simon is also the only comedian to have appeared on both University Challenge – the Professionals and Christmas University Challenge. He also won Celebrity Mastermind with his specialist subject Sir Ernest Shackleton. He has made several appearances on various debate shows, including Question Time and The Big Questions.
His live tour shows such as Friendly Fire, Leashed and most recently Genius 2.0 have sold out theatres around the country and garnered superlative reviews from national and comedy press. William Cook described him as "sublime", and Chortle as "an evil delight". At the Edinburgh Festival, Genius 2.0 received the rare and highly coveted five-star rating from The Scotsman - describing it as a “masterclass”.
On the corporate circuit, his ability to perform an entirely clean set without compromising on the laughs and his relative maturity and reference points have made him a great hit - especially with audiences who might find some of his rivals rather... juvenile. Simon is also – to great benefit at awards functions etc – blessed with the ability to deliver from autocue with natural ease, panache and, when necessary, a good turn of pace.
An evil delight.
