Ben Elton Tickets
Ben Elton – experience alternative humour at its best
Have you ever heard of the musical "We Will Rock You"? Did you love "Blackadder" too? If so, you’re well served with Ben Elton tickets from StubHub – he’s the comedic genius behind these productions. But of course that’s not all he’s produced in his decades-spanning career. Witness the multi-talent live on stage and enjoy some of the best satirical comedy you’ll ever see.
A career that spans almost everything from comedy to musical
Comedian, actor, playwright, novelist, producer – there doesn’t seem to be much in entertainment that Ben Elton isn’t able to do. The British-Australian talent first found his creative footing as part of the "alternative comedy" movement of the 1980s and was soon recruited to write for TV shows, including the popular "Blackadder" series. Becoming part of the big industry, however, didn’t mean he gave up stand-up comedy, in which he mainly impressed with his satirical take on politics and other topics. In the 80s he featured on the TV show "Alfresco", which he also wrote in parts, and which featured other major British actors such as Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson and Stephen Fry. Continuing up the ladder of success, Elton wrote more and more for TV, including his own comedy series "Happy Families", which rose to critical success. And his stand-up comedy career wasn’t lagging behind in any way: having performed regularly on "Saturday Live" (now "Friday Night Live"), he ended up hosting the show, boosting his creative career even further. Now, for most people two prolific and successful careers would be enough, but Elton’s creative juices flooded into a range of novels and – because why not, while you’re at it? – award-winning musicals like "The Beautiful Game". Witness one of Britain’s finest as he returns to his roots and enjoy high-quality stand-up with Ben Elton tickets from StubHub. There’s no way you should miss this show; however, if last-minute changes do prevent you from going, sell your tickets on StubHub so they don’t go to waste. And, of course, you’ll get your money back, so it’s really a win-win situation.
Credit where credit is due
With his career spanning decades and a seemingly incessant flow of creativity, there are few artists as well established in the business. Elton has been awarded an Honorary Rose, as well as three BAFTA awards for "Best Comedy Series". His musical We Will Rock You has swept off most big musical awards out there, including an Olivier Award. In short, it’s high time to get your Ben Elton tickets pocketed and seize the chance to see him live.
