News and Reviews for this Show

August 17, 2017  The Edinburgh Reporter
There are some comedians that just seem to be nice people with a nice turn of anecdote and phrase. There doesn’t appear to be a career trajectory, just a desire to get up on stage and be funny.

If you have been attending the Fringe for over 35 years (as this reporter has) then you get the impression that this type of comedian may have a longer life expectancy than others.

Ben Clover is an engaging comedian who immediately engages the audience from the start. His show meanders but at its heart is the Inheritance proposal made to him by a sort of friend.

Ben’s show is one of those that a sideways look at life as opposed to a sideways swipe. The type of comedian that you would like to drop in on in a couple of years and find out how married life is and being a father.

This is a “Pay What You Can” show and we do implore you to put it into your itinerary at 3.15 at the Royal Overseas League in George Street. Click Here
