I'm Still Here - T0501483001

Congratulations! It's 2018 and you're still here! So is Mitch, ("the country's leading musical satirist" Times) looking backwards, forwards and sideways trying to make the world a better place, one silly song at a time. Join him as he looks back over what for the lack of a better word he still refers to as his "career" and ponders where he - and indeed all of us - might be going next.

Don't Fear the Reaper - T01363220884

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! The 'Now Show' aside, Mitch has recently co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's 'Anatomy of a Guitar' as well performing 'Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle' and presenting 'Spank The Plank' both for BBC Radio 4. An occasional series where Mitch takes his unique and quirky look at a few more rock icons has been commissioned by Radio 4.

Don't Believe a Word - T01050284660

Mitch Benn is a skeptic. But don't take his word for it. In this critically-acclaimed show Mitch debunks myths, exposes nonsense and grapples with the very nature of knowledge itself with amusing consequences and of course a few songs along the way.

Mitch Benn is The 37th Beatle - T1521348478

Mitch's new show combines his Scouse upbringing with his love of music and a lifelong obsession with Liverpool's most famous sons. It is most definitely not a tribute show and while his affection for his subjects is well documented, expect the satirical twists for which Mitch is well known.

Reduced Circumstances - T359126387

The adventures of a contracting man in a contracting world. The world is shrinking, the economy's shrinking and comic songwriter Mitch Benn, ?The country's leading musical satirist ? (The Times), is shrinking. In January 2011 he weighed 25 stone. By last year's Edinburgh Fringe he had lost 10 stone. How did he do it? Where's it gone? How the hell did he reach 25 stone in the first place? And the real question: what will he (and we) do now? Music. Mirth. Morbid obesity. Not exactly a new name on the comedy circuit, Benn has spent the last few years quietly composing some of the best rib-ticklers you'll ever hear. He's a regular on Radio 4's Friday night staple The Now Show, for which he composes weekly topical satirical ditties.

and the Distractions - Sing Like an Angel - T01154972533

A blistering two hours of musical parody from ‘Britain’s top musical satirist’ The Times. From BBC Radio 4’s THE NOW SHOW and CRIMES AGAINST MUSIC, and BBC1’s THE ONE SHOW, Mitch Benn is back on tour with his band following the release of his latest single. Is it a gig? Is it a comedy show? So musically adept are Mitch Benn and his band and so droll their parodies you get the best of both worlds. The Guardian.
