“I’m a sceptic. But don’t take my word for it. Or indeed anybody’s. For anything….” is the basic premise of Mitch Benn’s new show, which comes to Newport Riverfront on November 17.
In Don’t Believe A Word, Mitch debunks myths, exposes nonsense and grapples with the very nature of knowledge itself extolling the virtues of an evidence-based approach to life with amusing consequences and of course a few songs along the way.
Known for his appearances on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, Mitch’s other work has included three specials on music icons Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Elvis which have recently been broadcast on BBC Radio 4. On stage, he has played Zaphod Beeblebrox in The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy and headlined his own stand up show Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle. Mitch has also written two novels, Terra and Terra’s World and co-authored with Jon Holmes on The Twitter History of the World.
