About

WINNER of BBC 2’s Celebrity Mastermind

It’s been a morbid time for "the country's leading musical satirist" (The Times); he's turned 46 - over the hill by anyone's standards - his personal life is in turmoil, and his childhood heroes are dropping like flies.  At times like these, a man feels the Reaper creeping up on him… But is death anything to fear? And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his - and YOUR - mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences.  Join him! It's time you're not getting back!

"Intelligent and funny writing both of music and gags... a must see show" One4Review

“Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny” The Guardian

“Song after song of exquisitely crafted satire” The Scotsman
