About The Event

Prepare for an improvised comedy adventure with this 'master of audience interaction' (Huffington Post) as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that've never been told before and never will be again. For this preview Ben will be joined by special guests Katie Pritchard and Olaf Falafel, who will be providing live musical accompaniment and live cartooning.

'Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue' (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).

'On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we're swept up' (Fest).

'His hit rate is impressive, while his in-the-moment style creates a buzz of excitement in the room' (
