Never miss another 'Ben Target' show
Bear Hugging & Other Skills: Ben Target, Matthew Highton
A new comedy show for children...
Hello team! We’re going to attempt the impossibles – all of them. Ever wished you could fly, befriend bears and dream up your own coral island? Join a charming rogue and his loveable fool on an exuberant journey into constructive chaos and back.
Ben target is perfect. Bathe in his glory. Turn as he weeps. Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee. Winner, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.
"Staggeringly inventive and sometimes unnerving, this highly physical performer is a true original and a legend in the making" Guardian,
"Impressively funny" Scotsman
‘Imagine there was no Ben Target. The world would unquestionably be a darker, less interesting place’ **** (Chortle).
