Details

It’s been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 46 - over the hill by anyone's standards - his personal life is in turmoil, and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies. At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him… But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his - and YOUR - mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences. Join him! It's time you're not getting back!

Mitch has been a regular on BBC Radio 4's The Now Show for more than a decade and has 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 recently 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. He is currently working on a 40th anniversary special of Derek & Clive, again for BBC Radio 4.

"Intelligent and funny writing both of music and gags... a must see show" One4Review
