Simon Evans – The Work of the Devil

Off The Kerb present: Simon Evans – The Work of the Devil

Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (“a masterclass” ★★★★★ ~ The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year.

“A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans’ wit and caustic observation.” ★★★★ ~ The Scotsman

“When he gets stuck into his show in earnest he guides us to a terrifically tender conclusion that he handles intelligently, informatively, amusingly and unsentimentally… Dynamite” ★★★★ ~ The Times

“You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ★★★★ ½ ~ Chortle

Simon Evans is the star of Live at the ApolloMock The WeekBBC Radio 4’s The News QuizThe Unbelievable Truth, and Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This Week, Question Time, Celebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals.
