Hello and welcome to the all-new mitchbenn.com…

As you can imagine, it’s a weird time to be a comedian just now (it’s a weird time to be anyone) and so there’s not a VAST amount to bring you up to speed on…

As you probably know, all live comedy has been cancelled until further notice and it’s just been confirmed that this year’s Edinburgh Festivals will not be going ahead. As such the gigs page is going to be blank for a while but I’m still keeping myself busy.

I’ve just launched a new podcast, Confined to Barracks, in which I’m joined by famous and interesting people to discuss things we can all do to keep ourselves sane and positive while we’re all under house arrest. Go to mitchbenn.buzzsprout.com and have a listen.

My new video “F**k All” is a stirring call to inaction for these turbulent times. It went live two days ago and although I’m somewhat reticent to use the word ‘viral’… it seems to have struck a chord with patriotic Brits everywhere. Please go check out the channel and hit “subscribe” if you’ve not done so already.

If you enjoy what I do, please visit patreon.com/mitchbenn and consider becoming a patron. I realise that not everyone is in a position to do that just now but if you are, you can support me and help me to keep on doing all this weird stuff for as little as $1 a month (patrons also get perks, rewards and access to exclusive content).
