Returning to the character he played in BBC series Goodnight Sweetheart, Fringe First award-winner David Benson takes on Coward’s masterful songbook.

This brand new show promises Benson at his best as singer, impersonator, host and raconteur. With eight solo shows and over a decade’s experience of the fringe, Benson has a proven ability to sensitively portray some of the most famous performers of our time whilst offering new insight, dark humour and plentiful entertainment.

When David was twelve years old his grandfather gave him a 78rpm record of Coward singing his comic patter song The Stately Homes of England. He was immediately hooked. Now at last he is set to indulge his life-long passion for these songs with this sparkling tribute to The Master.

Featured songs include Mad Dogs and Englishmen, London Pride, Mad About the Boy, I’ll See You Again, If Love Were All, and Mrs. Worthington.

 

'There are actors, comedians, singers- and then there is Benson, a theatrical enigma who does it all, with a cheeky smile.' EdinburghGuide.com

'Masterful comic insight. And he can sing, the swine. Miss at your peril.' The Independent
