Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil

Funny That Comedy are excited to bring Simon Evans: The Work of the Devil to The Hub Theatre, Haywards Heath College, Wednesday 12 April, 8:00pm!

Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 ( “A Masterclass” ***** The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life. But his new show raises the stakes, with his usual excoriating views of a world on fire given a perspective shift from personal revelations that turned his world upside down this year. 

A gripping and, ultimately heart-warming tale… rich with Evans’ wit and caustic observation.” ★★★★ The Scotsman

When he gets stuck into his show in earnest he guides us to a terrifically tender conclusion that he handles intelligently, informatively, amusingly and unsentimentally… Dynamite” ★★★★ The Times

You expect a high standard of stand-up from this veteran performer. But in sharing something so deeply personal, he’s exceeded what seemed to be his full potential… I’d expect it to get even better when it goes out on tour. Outstanding stuff.” ★★★★ ½ Chortle

Simon Evans is the star of Live at the ApolloMock The Week, BBC Radio 4’s The News QuizThe Unbelievable Truth & Simon Evans Goes To Market. Simon has made appearances on This WeekQuestion TimeCelebrity Mastermind, Pointless Celebrities and Mastermind The Professionals

Jen Brister: Waves – BBC R4 Recording at The Forge, Ironworks Studios

A local favourite and one of the stars of our Forge Comedy Club launch night, we’re so excited to welcome Jen Brister back to Ironworks Studios to record her new solo show for BBC Radio 4.

The past year or so has not been kind to anyone, but for Jen Brister it has been fraught even by lockdown standards. The (non-biological) mother of young, entitled, noisy twin boys – as documented in her successful book The Other Mother – has been trapped in the maelstrom of extreme parenting, her explosive and sharp-tongued wit silenced by the chopping up of vegetables and the whir of the washing machine. 

But Jen has found an unusual refuge from all this strain: sea swimming. In the almost always freezing waters of the English Channel, she has found herself not just physically but also mentally freed from the unusual pressures of the present situation. Despite being instinctively resistant to concepts like ‘mindfulness’ and ‘living in the moment’, this acid-tongued comic has – against her own will, and accidentally – embraced them. ‘Swimming has become my constant. Well, that and drinking. But, anyway, let’s get back to the swimming’. 

Recording for Jen’s Radio 4 solo show debut, one of our most high-octane comedians vents a year’s worth of stand-up spleen upon an audience in her home town of Brighton – and then shakes off those frustrations by taking us (figuratively) deep-sea swimming. A comic voyage of self-discovery, but also a surprisingly profound examination of the relationship between body and mind. 


WHEN: 
Monday 23rd May – doors open at 7:30pm

WHERE:

Ironworks Studios, 30 Cheapside, Brighton, BN1 4GD

Ages 14+. The show will take approximately 1 hour to record.
