with MITCH BENN
"The country's leading musical satirist" The Times
Guitar-wielding comedian and writer Mitch Benn is a tour-de-force of relentless monologues and song-after-song of exquisitely crafted satire. Very clever. Very funny.
A stalwart of BBC Radio 4's Now Show for more than a decade, Mitch has also presented many radio specials. Following on from the success of Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle, a further three specials on music icons Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Elvis have been broadcast - The Freewheelin Mitch Benn, Mitch Benn Is The Fat Pink Duke and Mitch Benn Has Left The Building. He also co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's Anatomy Of A Guitar and presented Spank The Plank for BBC Radio 4. Most recently, in December 2016, he appeared on (and won) BBC1 television's Celebrity Mastermind!
“Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny” The Guardian
Mitch is the author of two novels, Terra and Terra's World both published by Gollancz and co-author with Jon Holmes of The Twitter History Of The World the paperback edition of which was published by Prion Books in September 2015.
“Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire” The Scotsman
