Tremendous stuff from a gentle and laconic comedian who stole the hearts of everyone in the room. Without doubt the relevation of the year so far. Karel

Bio
Simon Evans is a firmly established headline act on the circuit; he has performed sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival for years.
His talents have been put to good use on both television and radio. He has written for Big Breakfast, Lily Savage, Johnny Vaughan Tonight, The State We're In and has a sitcom in development. He's a favourite of Radio 4 - hosting and writing seven series of spoof news show The Way It Is (as Richard Richard) as well as appearing on numerous panel games and discussion programmes - and has appeared on the Comedy Store (Five) and The Stand Up Show (BBC1).Simon's other television appearances include the Comedy Network, Five's Company (Five) and an appearance on The Krypton Factor, but that's another story. He is a regular contributor to both Radio 4 and London Live and has had full-length comedy scripts commissioned by the BBC for both TV and radio.
With his arrogant and snobbish stage manner, Evans is not the sort of comic you immediately warm too. As he gets into his set, however, things change as you realise this is a front for some exceedingly sharp and funny comic observations.

The only comedian I've ever seen to make me unable to breathe... his accent gag set me off for weeks. Robin
Brilliant! Nick
Very funny indeed, but I hope he doesn't mean it. Wendy
Best use of "ovine" in a mixed bill, 2002. The Spinster
