The 2021 comedian is Simon Evans.
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 sitcom 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, both as a guest and presenting his own shows, including Simon Evans Goes To Market, a wry but informative look at all things economic alongside Tim Harford and Merryn Somerset Webb. He's also shown his more serious side on Question Time and This Week. Prior to comedy, Simon’s previous jobs have taken in juggling, the law, and writing erotic fiction.
