"I'm a skeptic. But don't take my word for it. Or indeed anybody's. For anything...." and this is the basic premise of Mitch's new critically acclaimed show. It's a show that will make you laugh a lot and think a bit as well as Mitch debunks myths, exposes nonsense and grapples with the very nature of knowledge itself extolling the virtues of an evidence-based approach to life .... with amusing consequences and of course a few songs along the way.

The 'Now Show' aside, Mitch has recently co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's 'Anatomy Of A Guitar' as well performing 'Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle' and presenting 'Spank The Plank' both for BBC Radio 4. An occasional series where Mitch takes his unique and quirky look at a few more rock icons has been commissioned by Radio 4.
