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.

Tickets for Simon Evans are all priced £14 and can be purchased at the Box Office on 01748 825252 or online at
