‘Super-sharp dry wit’ - Time Out, May 2013

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Following two total sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and a hugely successful UK tour, star of C4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’ Simon Evans hits the road with his critically acclaimed show LEASHED.

Like most men of his age and delusion, Simon Evans dreams of striking out into The Wild and slipping the surly bonds of suburbia. He remembers, inaccurately, a youth spent drifting like a Home Counties Kerouac through the great European arterial transport thoroughfares, bonding, if not with tribal herdsmen, then at least with truck drivers and the occasional Foreign legionnaire deserter. Living on his wits (which is to say, thieving) coping Britishly with strange and confusing sexual advances, and waking up each day with the sunrise, no matter how carefully he attempted to construct some kind of rudimentary curtaining around his head before turning in for the night on some dismal piece of disregarded municipal verge or other. He remembers, and he yearns.

So what does Simon do, in an effort to reconnect with the spontaneity of his former, unburdened self? He buys a bloody dog. Idiot.

Come and hear what will be at the very least a useful corrective to the growing swell of earnest middle class “Wilderness” literature written by men who tramp off into the woods to spend the night in the root bole of a storm-toppled fir and are able to tell you what kind of owl it was that that did that on them, as if that’s any kind of way for a grown up to behave.

A familiar voice on BBC Radio 4, Simon is a regular on ‘The News Quiz’, ‘The Unbelievable Truth’, ‘Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive’ and anchored and wrote seven series of the news satire ‘The Way It Is’. Evans has appeared on numerous TV shows including ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC), ‘The Apprentice: You’re Fired!’ (BBC) and ‘Mock the Week’ (BBC). He is also a prolific writer for radio and tv, his credits include ‘Not Going Out’ (BBC1) and ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’ (C4) amongst many others. He appeared on ‘University Challenge:The Professionals’ in 2007. Simon was a contestant on ‘Celebrity Mastermind’, where his specialist is Ernest Shackleton and the Endurance, and he’s recently appeared on BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’.
