Finalist ‘English Comedian of the Year’ 2009
Finalist ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ UK 2008
Gifted rapper, brother of bestselling novelist Zadie Smith, the man who’s shared the spotlight with Mark Ronson, Kanye West, Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen...a round of applause for the still ‘unfamous’ Ben ‘Doc Brown’ Smith.
Doc Brown is visiting Australia for the first time with his sell-out 2010 Edinburgh Fringe show, an hilarious and humbling salute to nearly making it.
Being human, we all have a desire to be special. In an age of instant celebrity, how far would you go to be remembered? Experience a lifetime of extremes as Doc recalls the remarkable events that, for him, should have spelt infamy. But only spelt unfamy.
“The Bill Bailey of rap.” Chortle.co.uk
“No need for the status anxiety: if Brown keeps mining this rich seam of hip-hop comedy, his fame should look after itself.” The Guardian
“Crowd-pleasing and ego-lite. ****” The Independent (UK)
“With this thoughtful, charming and impressively executed debut, he lives up to [the hype].” Chortle.co.uk
