Simon Evans
comedian; regular panellist, BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz

Simon is a comedian of some 20 years standing, with two appearances on Live at the Apollo to his name along with plenty more on TV and radio. His 2017 Edinburgh Fringe show, Genius, was a sell out and won a coveted five-star Scotsman review, while his 2019 Edinburgh show, Dressing for Dinner was widely heralded as his best yet!

Simon is a regular on Radio 4’s The News Quiz, and hosted a topical satire show, The Way It Is, through seven series from 1998-2002. He is now host of the comedy/economics hybrid, Simon Evans Goes to Market.
