The Queen's Hall, Edinburgh
Passed

This event has been and gone.

More than 30 years ago, Ben Elton exploded into the national consciousness hosting Channel 4’s ground breaking Saturday Live. Now, after a 15 year absence, the Godfather of modern stand-up returns to the medium he did so much to define. Back on the road with an all new stand-up show, Ben promises to try and make sense of a world which appears to have gone stark raving mad.

As Ben says: 'The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn'.
