Hi, I'm Evan!

I tell data jokes!

Who is this guy?

Evan Wimpey is an analytics professional and stand-up comedian. Yes, dreams really do come true! With a background in statistics and economics, Evan has spent years analyzing data and delivering statistical models. Since the topic can be quite dry and technical, Evan has realized that humor is often the most effective way to make analytics more accessible...or at least the most fun way. He performs data science comedy at conferences and events around the world. With his book, Predictable Jokes, Evan hopes to continue sharing laughs and making analytics available to all. Evan is open to any kind of event - including:

Conferences Set your conference apart with a hilarious keynote, entertaining happy-hour, or anything in between.

Team Events Tailored comedy specific to your data folks. Treat your team to some unique comedy, from someone that really gets them.

Universities What better way to retain tough data concepts...than humor!

Baseball Games Evan can do play-by-play or color commentary.

Nic Herndon

ECU Computer Science Graduate Program Director

Evan Wimpey was wonderful (and fun!) to work with both in the lead up to and during our 2024 Analytics Conference. He helped to introduce the plenary speakers for both days of our event and structured his content to the unique interests of our audience. Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed his addition to our conference lineup and I highly recommend including him in your upcoming events or conferences!
