    Mitch Benn - “I'm Still Here”

    7:30 pmSt Austell Arts Theatre

    Mitch Benn


    “Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire” The Scotsman

    Congratulations!  It's 2018 and you're still here!

    So is Mitch, ( "the country's leading musical satirist" The 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.  

    "A seriously talented laugh-maker, musician and satirist. Mitch Benn should be more widely known and appreciated. He’s Britain’s answer to Tom Lehrer”; The Swindonian

    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.  More recently, 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.

    Wit, wisdom and wordplay of the highest order!

    “Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire” The Scotsman

    “Mitch Benn remains an optimist, despite the way the world is, and it is his mission to improve the world with words which deflate pomposity and pretence,”
