Simon Evans: Genius

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius.

He has, until now, remained thwarted.

The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans'. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm… 

Simon Evans is a stalwart of Radio Four Comedy, having appeared in many episodes of the News Quiz, Armando Ianucci’s Charm Offensive, The Unbelievable Truth, Heresy, True Lies and seven series as anchor and principal writer on The Way It Is. He’s also appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and University Challenge – The Professionals.
