The very last Wolfson Howler of 2012 will be descending on the Wolfson College bar on Monday, November 26th. Come see off Michaelmas Term with some of the best comedy from Cambridge and beyond. We are very excited to announce a headline set from the hugely gifted, multi-talented writer-performer BEN TARGET.
In 2012, Ben received an Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nomination for his debut solo show, ‘Discover Ben Target’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It was a festival highlight and media favourite with sell-out shows and consistently positive reviews. Ben performed on BBC3’s Comedy Marathon and appeared on BBC3’s Live At The Electric. He was selected for the UK tour, ‘Comedy’s New Wave’ alongside Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Jonny Sweet and Nick Mohammed. Ben was also invited to represent the UK at the Eindhoven Comedy Festival in The Netherlands with Zoe Lyons.
In 2011, Ben won the prestigious UK stand up competition, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. He co-created an online series for BBC3. Ben co-founded PLEB Talks, the sell-out comedy lecture series – embarking on a UK festival tour.
Frequently embraced by critics as one to watch, Ben is crafting his distinct, engaging and wildly creative style.
All topped off with a showcase of the best in Cambridge student comedy, presided over by the brilliant Nish Kumar.
