Simon has returned to Radio 4 with his fourth series of his hit economics show Simon Evans Goes to Market. In this series Simon examines the concept of the 'free lunch', and shines a light on new ways of making money in the 21st century.
Simon is well known to the British comedy-going public from TV shows such as Live at the Apollo and Stand Up for the Week, and as a regular on BBC Radio 4, where his own hugely successful, acclaimed radio show Simon Evans Goes To Market returns for a fourth series in Spring 2018. A funny, incisive and informed look at the economics behind, well, everything – this is a great showcase for Simon’s talents, as are his regular appearances on various panel games, most notably Radio 4’s legendary The News Quiz.

Angela Barnes

Rose Tinted (A Work In Progress)

“She’s just a gloriously down-to-earth, straight talking and extremely funny comic”
The Guardian


Angela Barnes (Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, Alan Davies’ As yet Untitled, Russell Howard’s Good News, BBC R4’s The News Quiz, host of Newsjack on BBC R4Extra) is back with her brand new show for 2018 Rose Tinted.


You may have seen or heard Angela on a number of topical comedy TV and radio shows, and you know what, she is just about fed up of the news. She’s anxious, she’s depressed and she’s fatigued. Bored of Brexit, tired of Trump and knackered by North Korea. The world is going to hell in a handcart and Angela, naturally world weary, is fed up of commentating on it all as it happens.


But can a renowned pessimist like Angela really find it in herself to accentuate the positive, to look on the bright side and pop on her rose tinted specs to make the bad stuff go away? Just for a little bit? Like maybe for an hour?


Or is she better off confronting the horrible stuff and laughing in its ugly face?


An hour of stand up and stories from a woman who is just trying to live her best life and wouldn’t mind a taste of that ignorant bliss she’s heard so much about.
