Ben Elton

Live 2019

"More than 30 years ago, Ben Elton exploded into the national consciousness hosting Channel 4's ground breaking 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.

Elton himself comments: "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 in Dublin on 27th September and then travels across the UK culminating in Torquay on 30th November. A full list of dates is below.
