Mitch Benn -Don't Fear The Reaper

Mitch Benn -Don't Fear The Reaper


WINNER of **BBC 2’s Celebrity Mastermind**.

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!

"Intelligent and funny writing both of music and gags... a must see show" **One4Review**
“Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny”** The Guardian**
“Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire”** The Scotsman**

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.
Mitch is also the author of two novels, 'Terra' and 'Terra's World' both published by Gollancz and co-author with Jon Holmes of 'The Twitter History Of The World' the paperback edition of which was published by Prion Books.
