Ben Elton announced back in 2019 that he would tour Australia in 2020 with a brand-new stand-up show, Ben Elton Live. But we all know what happened next.
With the country just now opening back up, Ben has been hitting stages around the country and has added new dates across Australia, including Darwin! He last performed stand-up in Australia in 2006 but returned to the stage with a totally sold-out 75 date UK tour in 2019, drawing rave reviews.
As Ben says: “The last time I toured, I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.”
Ben Elton exploded onto the comedy scene more than 30 years ago, hosting Channel 4’s groundbreaking Saturday Live. Since then, Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author, playwright, actor and director.
A highly respected author, Elton has published 16 best-selling novels, six of which became number one bestsellers. Elton is also widely known for his writing for the stage which includes three smash hit West End plays and the global phenomenon We Will Rock You.
A serial award winner, he has won three BAFTAs, two Laurence Olivier Awards, The Royal Television Society Writer’s Award, The Golden Dagger UK Crime Writer of the Year Award, The Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Eurovision Golden Rose D’Or Lifetime Achievement Award.
