Wednesday 12th May: Ben Elton 

"Just give him a stage and a microphone and Ben Elton is the best. No contest."     - The Sunday Times.

English comedian, author, playwright and director, Ben Elton was a leading figure in the British alternative comedy movement of the 1980s, as a writer on such cult series as The Young Ones and Blackadder, as well as also a successful stand-up comedian on stage and TV. 

As Ben says: "The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn."
