Mitch Benn's Ten Songs to Save the World
By David Wood
Where: Sundial Theatre, Cirencester
When: Friday, January 24
One broken world and ten funny songs to fix it. Mitch Benn spreads insight and laughs in equal measure.
Join the "country's leading musical satirist" (The Times) as, with six string in hand and a head full of silly rhymes, he identifies the problems and proposes (semi-serious) solutions.
"Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny" (The Guardian).
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 have 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 also appeared on (and won) BBC1 television's 'Celebrity Mastermind'!
Mitch is 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. He also writes for The New European.
