Ever since he was a boy, all Simon 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.
In turn, Evans seems blissfully indifferent to conformity – political or otherwise. Speaking in enhanced BBC Received Pronunciation and inhabiting the persona of a man slightly out of touch, he magnificently skewers politicians, couch potatoes, in fact everything that is wrong with society.
A formidably funny show of fantastic intellect.
‘Super-sharp wit’ Time Out.
‘A masterclass in socio-political comedy… The show is called Genius. It comes very close’ ***** The Scotsman
‘Reliably funny and refreshingly intelligent’ **** The Times
