Ben Barker was almost killed by ‘Games Master’ presenter, Dominik Diamond… twice… in two different continents. But he doesn"t like to talk about it. Instead, he muses on movies, toy shops and Nazis through a combination of anti-comedy, word play and puns from a man who still isn"t quite ready to be a grown-up yet.
Ben Barker has performed at venues around the UK including the Frog & Bucket in Manchester, Norwich Arts Centre and several Jongleurs venues. He has written and performed sketches for Channel 4 and BBC radio, has appeared (albeit briefly) on ITV3’s Stand Up Hero and has been a semi-finalist in the Loaded Laftas and Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year competitions.
