‘Brilliantly weird’ – chortle.co.uk
‘Relentless originality…manic and gripping’ – The Guardian
Like a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic Seymour is a teller of extremely tall tales and High Priest of the terrifically twisted one-liner. He is a former City Life Comedian of the Year and Best Breakthrough Act at the North West Comedy Awards. He was also victorious in the Cup A Soup Comedy Challenge.
You may mock such a curiously named title but the prize money was 10 grand. Strewth. He has featured on ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, ‘The Weird World Of Russell Brand’, ‘The Stand-Up Show’ and ‘Clive Anderson’s Chat Room’. He was also a regular in BBC2′s Johnny Vegas sitcom ‘Ideal’ playing the ill-fated twins ‘Craig’ and ‘Steve’. As a result he is now unable to walk down the street without being recognised by the nation’s stoners.
His Edinburgh Festival show ‘Squeg’ garnered rave reviews including 4 stars from the hugely influential comedy website Chortle.
‘His one-liners showed considerable skill in their writing and he displayed an admirable sense of timing in telling them’ – chortle.co.uk
Fresh from an acclaimed stint in the prestigious Big Value Comedy Show at the Edinburgh Fringe. Published author and wonderfully witty wordsmith Ben appeared at the ‘Rock With Laughter’ show at the LG Arena in Birmingham where he performed in front of 20,000 people over two nights with his finely honed and gently acidic humour.
