February Comedy Club at the Planetarium
Stand-up comedy nights in the unique setting of the planetarium. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
Simon is well known to the British comedy-going public from TV shows such as Live at the Apollo and Stand Up for the Week, and as a regular on BBC Radio 4, where his own hugely successful, acclaimed radio show Simon Evans Goes To Market returns for a fourth series in Spring 2018. A funny, incisive and informed look at the economics behind, well, everything – this is a great showcase for Simon’s talents, as are his regular appearances on various panel games, most notably Radio 4’s legendary The News Quiz.
Hugely popular at the Edinburgh festival, Simon has recently returned from the Fringe after a sell-out run of his new show, Genius. He received a coveted five star review from The Scotsman where his show was described as a ‘masterclass in socio-political comedy’ and an ‘extraordinarily accomplished hour’.
‘A formidably funny show of fantastic intellect’ – The List

‘Super-sharp dry wit’ – Time Out
