Simon Evans

Tightly written and carefully delivered

Evans executes the carefully crafted persona of an articulate, opinionated after-dinner speaker with a penchant for an extended vocabulary. Within the boundaries of this character, he charts familiar territories: slagging the Welsh, the Geordies and the fat, but armed with eloquence and irony. Fringe Magnet is tightly written and carefully delivered.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 30 Aug, 9.50pm, £10–£11 (£8.50–£9.50).
