Synopsis

Simon is a regular guest on Radio 4’s News Quiz and The Unbelievable Truth, after enjoying cult status as the voice of the fox in the Old Speckled Hen idents on DAVE. With unstinting sarcasm and wonderfully timed put-downs, he targets a whole herd of sacred cows – including the joys of parenthood.

Biography

Comedian and writer Simon Evans has established himself as one of the most intelligent and sharp live performers in the country. He is the writer of choice for Dara O Briain and a regular on panel shows The News Quiz and The Unbelievable Truth.

Simon is 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.

Amongst a host of TV appearances, Simon has been a guest on Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow, University Challenge: The Professionals, and The Comic Side of 7 Days. He has also been a writer on Lee Mack’s sit-com Not Going Out, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and for Lily Savage, and was a writer and co-creator of the panel show Argumental.

Simon is a regular on Radio 4, presenting his own show investigating arbitrary systems and appearing on The Stand Up Show.

Prior to comedy, Simon’s previous skills include juggling, the law, and writing erotic fiction.
