AFTER 15 YEARS BEN ELTON ANNOUNCES RETURN TO STAND UP COMEDY WITH 2019 IRISH AND UK TOUR
TICKETS ON SALE MONDAY 10 DECEMBER
PRE-SALE ON FRIDAY 7 DECEMBER
Ben Elton is a multi-award winning novelist, playwright, television writer, screenwriter and lyricist. He is also a theatre, screen, and TV Director, a stand-up comedian and a very occasional actor.
More than 30 years ago, Ben Elton exploded into the national consciousness hosting Channel 4’s groundbreaking Saturday Live. Now, after a 15-year absence, the Godfather of modern stand-up returns to the medium he did so much to define. Back on the road with an all-new stand-up show, Ben promises to try and make sense of a world which appears to have gone stark raving mad.
As Ben says: “The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.”
The 53 date tour kicks off at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on 27 September and then travels across the UK culminating in Torquay on 30 November. Tickets for all shows will go on sale on Monday 10 December.
‘Just give him a stage and a microphone and Ben Elton is the best. No contest.’
The Sunday Times
‘There is nothing, absolutely nothing to beat Ben Elton live!’
