"Mitch Benn: Ten Songs to Save the World" Comes to Wem Town Hall

One broken world and ten funny songs to fix it. From BBC Radio 4's "Now Show" to his column in the New European, Mitch 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.

“Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire” The Scotsman
“Well crafted lyrics, catchy tunes and a charismatic performer. What more could you ask for?” Leicester Mercury
"Undoubted skill as a musician and delightfully cutting wit" One 4 Review
"A seriously talented laugh-maker, musician and satirist. He’s Britain’s answer to Tom Lehrer” The Swindonian
“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'!
