Simon Hew Dalrymple Fanshawe (born 26 December 1956, in Devizes, England) is a writer and broadcaster. He contributes frequently to British newspapers, TV and radio. He is also now a consultant and non-executive director of public and private organisations. He first came to public attention as a stand-up comedian, winning the prestigious Perrier Award in 1989, and on the television programme That's Life!. Since then he has been a very frequent contributor on a variety of subjects from arts to politics in newspapers and on many BBC radio and TV programmes. His BBC Radio 4 profile light-heartedly describes him as a 'media tart'. Fanshawe has also been involved in many community/campaigning groups and public bodies - often as a board member.
