About

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!

Mitch has been a regular on BBC Radio 4's 'Now Show' for more than a decade and has 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 recently been broadcast.
