For a special Christmas-time treat, the Span Arts Comedy Club brings BBC Radio ledge and extraordinary musical satirist Mitch Benn back to the Queens Hall, Narberth, on Thursday 12 December.
Mitch has been correctly described in the mainstream press as “Britain’s leading musical satirist”, so there’s no doubt that this will be a night of proper laughs – especially if the likes of Tim Minchin, Tenacious D and Flight of the Conchords are your thing. Here’s a homegrown performer who holds his own against any of them.
Delivering a thoughtful and incredibly funny combination of stand-up and comedy songs, Mitch has built up a solid live following as a regular on BBC Radio 4’s Friday night staple The Now Show, in between releasing SEVEN studio albums and writing a science fiction novel.
For those who like their comedy a little more alternative, try Stephen Carlin. The BBC’s post-modern comic innovator and cult hero Stewart Lee describes him as one of the ten best standups in the world ever: “he has the kind of dry, elegant, beautifully written material that has no place on television”.
Compered by BBC New Comedy Awards host David Ward, with candle-lit cabaret dining in the interval from the wonderful Sospan Fach café with everything from mezze plates to tasty burgers, Span Arts’ long-running Comedy Club is the perfect night out for groups, dates, and work socials.
Tickets are available now from the Span Arts box office at span-arts.org.uk or on 01834 869323. The doors are open from 7.15pm and the show starts at 8pm.
