R4 recommissions Simon Evans Goes To Market

Four more episodes for the summer

Radio 4 has commissioned a third series of the comedy economics show Simon Evans Go To Market.

It will return in the summer with four episodes in which the stand-up will examine the business of births, deaths, marriage and one other topic yet to be decided.

The comic tweeted this afternoon that: ‘Suggestions for fourth plinth welcome’.

In the first series, which aired in 2014, Evans examined gold, land, oil and grain; and in the second last year looked at  coffee, alcohol, tobacco and sugar.

He is about to embark on a new tour that also looks at the economics of life, entitled In The Money. It kicks off in Banbury on January 29, and runs through to Cambridge in June. <a href="http://www.chortle.co.uk/shows/tour/s/24977/simon_evans%3A_in_the_money">Dates.</a>.

His TV appearances include Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Live At The Apollo, and 2012’s Celebrity Mastermind, which he won with the specialist subject of Ernest Shackleton.
