Like most men of his age, Simon Evans dreams of striking out into The Wild and slipping the surly bonds of suburbia.

He remembers, inaccurately, a youth spent drifting like a Home Counties Kerouac through the great European arterial transport thoroughfares, bonding, if not with tribal herdsmen, then at least with truck drivers and the occasional Foreign legionnaire deserter.

Evans has appeared on numerous TV shows including Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC), The Apprentice: You’re Fired! (BBC) and Mock the Week (BBC).

He is also a prolific writer for radio and TV, his credits include: Not Going Out (BBC1) and 8 Out Of 10 Cats (C4) amongst many others.

He also appeared on University Challenge: The Professionals in 2007.

And his exploits don’t stop there as he was also a contestant on Celebrity Mastermind, where his specialist was Ernest Shackleton.

His most recent TV appearance came on BBC1’s Live At The Apollo stand-up show.

Simon Evans will perform at the Pavilion Arts Centre, Buxton, on Saturday June 7.

Tickets are priced at £13, with an additional £1 per ticket fee for online bookings.
