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 his. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie disregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter?

Evans is one of the UK’s most respected and established comedians. He is a regular on television and radio having appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week and Stand Up for the Week. On BBC Radio 4, Simon Evans Goes to Market has audiences delighting in his witty and insightful take on the unpromising comic territory of commodities, trading and wealth. Other BBC Radio 4 appearances include the News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive. Simon has appeared on University Challenge – the Professionals, Celebrity Mastermind (which he won – specialist subject Sir Ernest Shackleton) and recently made his debut appearance on Question Time.

The show starts at 8pm and tickets are: 16.50 (£14.50 NHS staff) at the box office on: 01223 357 851 or online:
