Comedian Simon Evans to make visit to Ropery Hall
Slick, sharp, very funny stand-up Simon Evans makes his first appearance at Ropery Hall, Barton upon Humber with his new show, In the Money.
On stage on Thursday, February 18, Simon will be focusing his dry-as-a-bone wit on the economic situation here at home and abroad.
“For the past two years Simon has been immersing himself in economics,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk. “He has unpicked 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,” Liz continued.
Simon is the host of BBC Radio 4’s Goes to Market and star of BBC1’s Live at the Apollo as well as a regular on Radio 4’s The News Quiz and regularly appearing on C4’s Stand Up For The Week, BBC’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Live At The Apollo, The Apprentice: You’re Fired! and Mock the Week.
He is also a prolific writer for radio and tv, his credits include: Not Going Out (BBC1) and 8 Out Of 10 Cats (C4) amongst many others. He appeared on University Challenge:The Professionals in 2007. Simon was a contestant on Celebrity Mastermind, where his specialist subject was Ernest Shackleton and the Endurance.
