Simon out to prove that money is funny at a show in Kettering

A comedian will draw humour from an unexpected subject matter when he appears at Kettering Arts Centre.

Simon Evans, a star of BBC One’s Live at the Apollo can be seen at the venue on Saturday with his new show In the Money.

He has garnered material from the realms of high finance after immersing himself in economics for the last couple of years.

Like a pig immersing itself in organic cleansing elements 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.

This is a show that starts with lofty aspirations but, unlike a bottle of fine wine that matures with time, the whole thing deteriorates swiftly into a heartfelt rant about his children.

Doors open at 7.30pm with an 8pm start. Tickets cost between £12 and £14. For more details or to bookvisit www. ketteringartscentre.com.
