Ben Pope is 'a total delight' (Fest).
This is his charming, dewy-eyed, freshly-jellied new work-in-progress show - jokes, stories and verbal potpourri about God, faith, weddings, constellations, hoarding, murder, STIs, dogs, postcards and (urgh) love. Expect a 'consistently funny and deceptively thoughtful' hour (The Scotsman) as Pope putzes around with a new project. It'll be sublime.

Ben Pope is a stand-up comedian, writer and comedy performer.
His Edinburgh 2018 debut stand-up hour Baby Sasquatch transferred to the Soho Theatre in June 2019, and he took his sophomore show Dancing Bear to the Pleasance Courtyard at the Edinburgh Fringe the same year.
He started comedy at university where he was the President of the Cambridge Footlights and has been doing stand-up for seven years (as an act and MC), gigging regularly as a stand-up across the UK. Ben has previously worked with the award-winning NewsRevue, and appeared on Comedy Central’s Achievement Unlocked and BBC New Comedy Award on Radio 4 Extra. He runs the monthly new material night Fresh Chestnuts at The Betsey Trotwood pub in Farringdon.
He is also one third of the cult sketch group Princes of Main who were part of the line-up at London SketchFest in 2016, and have had sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 and 2017. Their critically acclaimed show New Year’s Eve (‘the future of sketch comedy is in safe hands’ – The Telegraph) transferred to London’s Soho Theatre in early 2018.Book Now
