Authentic Signed Ben Elton Photos, Framed & Mounted Displays
Comedian and writer Ben Elton has been a national treasure for decades. He co-wrote BBC’s The Young Ones in the early eighties at the tender age of 23, and the show was extremely popular. It was followed in quick succession by Alfesco (starring Stephen Fry) and the WW1 comedy Blackadder (with Rowan Atkinson). Blackadder was a worldwide success, scooping 4 BAFTAs and an Emmy in total, and in 1989 Ben Elton won the Royal Television Society Writers Award.
By the end of the decade he was a regular household stand-up name and became one of Britain’s biggest live comedy acts with his left-wing political satire style of comedy. He also had a regular slot on BBC’s Saturday Live and soon became the host of the programme. He has worked consistently in television since and his successes include Ben Elton: The Man from Auntie (1990), a stand-up comedy sketch show both written and presented by him, The Ben Elton Show (1998) and Get a Grip (2007).
Ben Elton is a regular stage performer and as well as his own stand-up shows, he has written an impressive back catalogue of musicals and West End shows, including We Will Rock You (2002), Tonight’s The Night (2003), Lovie Never Dies (2010) and more recently 2020’s Upstart Crow – a stage adaption of the TV series. He has also published 16 novels since 1989.
