Guitar-wielding comedian and writer Mitch Benn is a tour-de-force of relentless monologues and song-after-song of exquisitely crafted satire. A stalwart of BBC Radio 4’s Now Show for more than a decade, Mitch has also 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 followed – 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. 

Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny.’
