Ben Van der Velde: Fablemaker

#FindYour Funny, Story

Jump into an improvised comedy adventure with Ben as he raids the library of his fantastical imagination to create thrillers, romances, ghost stories and more original freewheeling tales that have never been told before and never will be again.

Continuing in the daft, freewheeling tradition of fellow Geordie Ross Noble, Ben returns to the Brighton Fringe as he improvises a brand-new story each night. With nothing to rely on but his wits and the punters in front of him, this is edge of your seat comedy without a safety net.

For added fun he is joined by award-winning podcaster and actor Tom Crowley who will be providing illustrations for all his stories and multi-talented musical comedy whirlwind Katie Pritchard adding an improvised soundtrack.


A hilarious show that forces its audience to not only participate but to help create the story.
