With so much TV and radio coverage, Luton born Simon Evans has definitely established himself as one of the UK's top comedians.
A number of top TV shows have used Simon's talent as a comedy writer, including, 'They Think It's All Over' and '8 Out of 10 Cats'. Simon also writes for some of the UK's top comedy talents such as Sean Lock, Dara O Briain and Lee Evans. He was one of the creators and writers of the Dave Channel's 'Argumental', which featured John Sergeant as host, along with team captains Markus Brigstocke and Rufus Hound.
In 2005, Simon Evans was one of only three British comics invited to perform at the prestigious Aspen Comedy Festival, along side Stewart Lee and Eddie Izzard. Previous to that, Simon received a highly enthusiastic reception for his Gala set at the famous Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he also headlined the Brit-Com package show to great acclaim. Needless to say, Simon is now a firmly established attraction on the circuit.
Simon Evans still headlines at The Comedy Store and top clubs around the country, from the Glasgow Stand to the Brighton Komedia, as well as selling out shows at the New Zealand and Cape Town Comedy Festivals.
His one man show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe has been running since 2000.
As for Simon Evans' style of comedy, a contributor to Chortle.co.uk had this to say about Simon's comic genius. "Same basis of comedy as Jack Dee but in my view better..." Of course, Simon, in deference to his justly famous stable-mate, can only shake his head at the extent of such praise. Still, it provides a handy reference point.
Simon Evans has many TV credits, however, as is often the case, it was for an appearance in a commercial - in this case, Strongbow Cider - that Simon was best known, or at least most immediately recognisable. He always has TV projects in development which he hopes will enable him to build on this ill-gotten fame.
Simon's talents have been put to good use on both television and radio. He wrote for 'Johnny Vaughan Tonight' and 'The State We're In'. He was overall script editor on BBC1's Revolver, script consultant on BBC2's 'The Live Floor Show' and 'Radio Rivron' on Radio 2.
A favourite of Radio 4, Simon has hosted and written seven series of the spoof news show, The Way It Is, as well as appearing on numerous panel games and discussion programmes.
He has appeared on 'The Comedy Store' for Channel 5 and BBC1's 'The Stand Up Show'. 2010 saw Simon's first appearance on 'Michael McIntyre's Comedy Road Show'. In 2011 Simon had his first foray into mainstream comedy quiz shows, with an appearance on Dara O Briain's 'Mock The Week' with regular panellists Andy Parson and Micky Flanagan.
''A comic at the top of his game and wreaking of experience.''
"Simon was great. He was not a diva. Terrific! Perfect!"
Rob Schneider, Secretary Scottish Oil Club. 2013
"...Simon did an absolutely superb job for us on Friday at the Scottish Oil Club."
Tom Morris, Director Cairn Energy, 2013
