Popular Radio 4 Comic Is Set To Entertain Richmond Audience
Thursday - January 28, 2016
Simon Evans – a stalwart of Radio 4 comedy –will be bringing his hilarious one-man show to Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal on Friday 19 February at 8.00pm.
Having appeared in many episodes of Radio 4’s the News Quiz and a principal writer on news satire The Way It Is, Simon Evans is also a regular on BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, BBC2’s Mock the Week, BBC’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and C4’s Stand up for the Week.
His new show – In the Money – is about the economy with Evans focusing his
dry-as-a-bone wit on our situation here at home and abroad.
Amongst other topics, he unpicks why the French don't want to own their own home; why mass spectrometers reveal Americans to literally be made of corn; and why Alco-Synth – the effects of alcohol but with an effective antidote – is not likely to be appearing at a wine bar near you in the near future, despite having been invented years ago.
As usual the whole thing deteriorates swiftly into a heartfelt rant about his children but these are at least the lofty aspirations he starts with this time.
This show kicks off a new comedy season at The Georgian theatre Royal that includes the award-winning writer and comedian Rob Auton with his Water Show on Friday 18th March and everyone’s favourite grumpy old woman Jenny Eclair on Sunday 10 April.
