Benjamin Crellin – Stands To Reason (Bar 50)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Benjamin Crellin’s one-hour stand-up show is a shotgun blast through a world full of ignorance. Finally, I thought, a comedian who addresses what needs to be said: namely the irony and perversity of our lives in the first world. He’s not here to talk to the drunks; he is here to tear through your cerebrum and expose the flaws. Covering the ‘War on Terror’, the possibility of paedophile suicide-bombers and disabled commandos, Benjamin Crellin is a Frankie Boyle-style comedian with a satirical brain and black humour; but crucially, in a world full of Jack Whitehalls, he is one of few comedians that has something to say. Go see him or I’ll hurt you. (Disclaimer: not really).

Bar 50, 6 – 27 Aug (not 11, 18, 25), 8.20pm(9.20pm), free.
