Renowned writer Ben Elton exploded onto the comedy scene more than 30 years ago hosting Channel 4s groundbreaking Saturday Live. 

Since then, Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author and playwright, and is also widely known for his writing for both stage and screen which includes the global phenomenon We Will Rock You based on the music of British rock legends Queen, and award winning tv shows such as Mr Bean, The Young Ones and the Blackadder series.  

He last performed stand up in Australia in 2006; as Ben says –“The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.” and is returning to the stage here after a completely sold out 75 date UK tour 

Elton’s Wollongong appearance is a new addition to his Australian tour schedule and an unmissable addition to our season of outstanding live shows!
