Show Information

Some people are life's heroes: leading men and women full of swash, buckle and daring-do. Others just hold their jackets. As the credits roll and the heroes hump, join Ben off-camera as he salutes the Barney Rubbles, Boo-Boos and Dr Watsons of the world. 

Over the past few years, Ben has spread joy and nonsense to all four corners of the British Isles, as well as Greece, Estonia, Switzerland, Latvia, Finland and Norway. On top of that, he has taken commissions to perform a voodoo re-marriage ceremony, founded the Church of the Holy Kazoo with comedy legend Mark Thomas, walked the entire London Underground network and even took part in experiments at The Royal Society that revealed him to have the most infectious laugh of any human, rat or monkey.  Join him for an evening of stuff, nonsense and magically riffed tomfoolery.
