Mitch Benn - Don't Fear The Reaper Tour heading to Tewkesbury!


Mitch Benn - Don't Fear The Reaper

Mitch's brand new show takes to the road.

It's been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 47 - 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

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. Most recently, in December 2016, he appeared on (and won) BBC1 television's 'Celebrity Mastermind'!

“Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny”
The Guardian

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 in September 2015.

“Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire”
The Scotsman

Mitch Benn will be appearing at The Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury on 8 March 2017. Click here for further details.
