Welcome to my website, it’s bloody lovely to see you. Have a potter round to find out when I’ll be bringing excessive enthusiasm and nonsense-mongering to a comedy club, student union, arts centre or spit and sawdust pub back room near you soon.
In other news, tickets for my debut Edinburgh Fringe show, Ben Van der Velde’s Chain letter, are on sale now. The show is on at the Clover Room, Underbelly Bristo Square at 4:10 PM, July 31st-August 26th (not 12th) You can buy them by clicking on this link here:

Overwhelmed with the quick-fire world of social networking, Ben decided to re-discover the lost art of letter-writing and start a chain letter.

“a sharp and crafty gagsmith.” (Chortle)
“highly promising.” (Time Out)
