Mitch Benn Returns to MAC with an Incredible new show! It's been a morbid time for Mitch. He's turned 47 - 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 in your life you're not getting back! 

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. Most recently, in December 2016, he appeared on (and won) BBC1 television's 'Celebrity Mastermind'!

Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny”
