The Godfather of modern stand-up returns! Ben Elton is back on the road with an all new stand-up show. His new show promises to try and make sense of a world which appears to have gone stark raving mad.
Known for his hilarious perspective on modern life, Ben is preparing to tour for the first time in 15 years, saying: “The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.”
Ben Elton is one of the most popular stand-up talents of his generation, having burst on to the stand-up scene in 1981 when he became the second resident compere at the Comedy Store after Alexei Sayle. He became a star as host of Channel 4’s alternative comedy showcase Saturday Live seven years later. In more recent years Elton has enjoyed success as a TV writer for various programmes including Upstart Crow.
