Mitch Benn

Don't Fear The Reaper

Swindon Arts Centre

Sun 26 February

Mitch Benn
SHOW INFORMATION

It’s been a morbid time for “the country’s leading musical satirist” The Times ; he’s turned 46 - 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

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

Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire The Scotsman
