Simon Evans will be performing his Edinburgh Fringe show “Genius” –  given five stars by The Scotsman who described it as “a masterclass in socio-political comedy” and an “extraordinarily accomplished hour”.  Simon is a regular performer on The News Quiz, Live at the Apollo and Stand Up for the Week, and has his own Radio 4 show “Simon Evans Goes To Market” which returns for a fourth series in Spring 2018.

“Sizzlingly Entertaining… Devastatingly Funny Gags”. The Guardian.

His joke about three men in a maternity ward is most people’s favourite joke... ever. Here it is:


This event is generously sponsored by The Royal Oak at Whatcote a recently refurbished traditional village public house, with good service and a fun atmosphere for both drinkers and diners alike, with a history matched by few. According to British Heritage site, Britain Express: "the present church dates to 1168 or thereabouts. We know the date pretty precisely, for in that year a small shelter was built to provide drinks for the workmen labouring to build the church. This grew in time to become the Royal Oak inn, which must be one of the oldest pubs in the country still in use. Tradition suggests that Cromwell stayed in the inn before the Battle of Edgehill in 1642, though it would not have born the name Royal Oak until the Restoration of the Monarchy!"
