Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2017
For a week at Always Be Comedy in 2017, Ben Clover was guest compere. Clover had a distinctive awareness on the world that he used to great effect on stage and his well-disguised jokes and observations often crept up on audiences unawares mixing crowd banter with scripted comedy.
Clover’s writing is original enough to keep the audience engaged and he was surprisingly comfortable. His warm MC skills shone through with the Always Be Comedy audience and he invigorated the room with his self-assured, inventive material and affable delivery.
