Benson's new show digs into the life and work of Doctor Samuel Johnson 300 years since his birth, and celebrates the undiminished power of his extraordinary writings and reflections.

Whether you love Johnson’s work or only know him from the Blackadder sketches, this show brings a fascinating character to life.

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

'A performer of immense charm, who quickly wins over even those who have never seen him before.'
