Following a complete sellout and critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival, Simon Evans brings his latest live show, Genius, to Leeds City Varieties on Saturday 5th May.
What is Genius? Beethoven? Einstein? The Spork? Is it a high IQ? A ruthless disregard for convention? Any ploy used successfully to carry a third pint glass without spilling it?
Few of these questions will be adequately answered but all will at the least be squinted at, quizzically, in this, Evans’ eighth solo Edinburgh show.
With reflections on the nature of intelligence, the possibility of original thought, the struggle to find the authentic self, dog fucking and Octopuses, Evans will expose the brain to itself as only a grubby mirror in a seedy bedsit of the imagination can.
Simon Evans’ Genius is at Leeds City Varieties for one night only on Saturday 5th May 2018. Book online at cityvarieties.co.uk or call the Box office 0113 243 0808.
