Ben Elton will tour New Zealand in 2021 with a brand-new stand-up show. As he says: ''The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn."

Ben Elton exploded onto the comedy scene more than 30 years ago, hosting Channel 4's groundbreaking Saturday Live. Since then Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author, playwright, actor and director. He's written television shows such as The Young Ones, Blackadder, The Thin Blue Line, Mr Bean and many more, as well writing and directing two feature films: 2000's Maybe Baby and 2017’s Australian-made Three Summers.

A highly respected author, Elton has published 16 best-selling novels, six of which became number one bestsellers. Elton is also widely known for his writing for the stage which includes three smash hit West End plays and the global phenomenon We Will Rock You based on the music of British rock legends Queen.

A serial award winner, he has won three BAFTAs, two Laurence Olivier Awards, The Royal Television Society Writer's Award, The Golden Dagger UK Crime Writer of the Year Award, The Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Eurovision Golden Rose D'Or Lifetime Achievement Award.
