Wynne Evans



Wynne Evans is best known as the spoof opera star Gio Compario from the gocompare.com TV ads but there is much more to discover & enjoy from Wynne in his role as an accomplished speaker & host  at corporate events. 

Wynne has been an opera singer for over 25 years, working at The Royal Opera House, Paris Opera and the Metropolitan Opera in New York throughout his career.

His debut album ‘A Song in My Heart’ went to the Number 1 in the classical charts.

He is a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales and Classic FM, and starred in his very own TV series on BBC One, ‘Wynne At the Deep End’. He was honoured by the National Eisteddfod with the title of Gorsedd of the Bards, where he presented the BBC2 TV programme.

He sang the role of PIANGI in the 25-year anniversary performance of The Phantom of the Opera, which was broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall to cinemas worldwide, and has been released on DVD.

As a principal tenor with Welsh National Opera his many roles included DUCA Rigoletto, RODOLFO La Bohème, ALFREDO La Traviata, and TAMINO The Magic Flute. He has appeared throughout the UK, with companies such as Opera North, English National Opera, Scottish Opera, Classical Opera Company, Chelsea Opera Group, Opera Northern Ireland, Glyndebourne Festival, and Almeida Opera.

Born in South West Wales, Wynne studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio in London.


“Wynne Evans brings a huge amount of life and energy to our events. We’ve worked with him for over five years across our awards programmes and look forward to continuing to do so.

Above and beyond turning up and hosting, Wynne feels very much a part of the team and works hard to help us make our events better year on year, bringing his wealth of experience and ideas to the table.

A professional host/master of ceremonies and a talented performer, I’d not hesitate to recommend event organisers work with Wynne Evans.”

Great British Entrepreneur Awards

“We held our very first ball to celebrate the opening of Maggie’s in Cardiff and Wynne really did help us make it a celebration! He absolutely brought the fundraising event to life. Wynne was determined to help us raise as much money as possible, not only was he a great host, keeping all 430 of our guests engaged, but he was also a fantastic auctioneer, getting the most out of people during the auction. He helped make the event run smoothly and ensured everyone had a great night. I would highly recommend Wynne as a host.” 

Maggie’s Cardiff

“We had the pleasure of welcoming Wynne as our after-dinner speaker at our awards dinner of our annual conference. Like many I only knew of Wynne as Mr GoCompare and I was absolutely blown away with his performance from start to end. Wynne certainly knows how to entertain his audience and had the whole room filled with laughter from the offset.

Not only is he a talented speaker, he is also a talented opera singer. He ended the evening with his version of “The Impossible Dream” and he certainly didn’t disappoint. It was an honour to meet such a down to earth, funny and talented man”
