Last NaBloPoMo, I wrote up my review of a Mitch Benn gig I’d seen.
Indeed, I didn’t even leave it a full calendar year. Mitch is back and better than ever – he even has a new single out.
It’s rare for Brits to get passionate without being cynical. Watching Mitch Benn sing “Proud of the BBC” is a joyous experience – especially with a packed theatre screaming the hideously complicated lyrics at the top of their lungs back at him. I think it’s the only time I’ve seen a “comedy singer/songerwriter” get a standing ovation.
The video for the single is quite beautiful as well.
There are still a few more date on his tour – it’s a brilliant evening of laughs, music and some wicked satire.
Looking forward to seeing Mitch again in 2011!
