The Death Hilarious 

Welsh, working-class firebrands The Death Hilarious are a sketch-centric comedy duo cut from the same rag as The League Of Gentlemen and The Mighty Boosh. They parade a coterie of crazed characters such as Creole exorcists, apelike weirdos and a homemade sex robot. Variously described as immersive, horrifying and joyous, The Death Hilarious mix the profound and the puerile with no thought for their own safety. They dissect and reassemble sketch comedy with the relish of Josef Mengele. They never sleep, these boys. They are dancing, dancing. They say that they will never die.
This ungodly pair began working together on podcast series set in the South Wales valleys, before forming The Death Hilarious and creating their peculiar brand of humour both online and on the live circuit. They first scrambled into the finals of the Welsh Unsigned Stand-up Award 2015 and the BBC New Comedy Award Cardiff heat 2016. They performed their debut hour at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017 and did a 4-night run at the Soho Theatre in 2018.
Nominated For Chortle Best Newcomer Award, 2018
“A bold and unique new voice in comedy…” – Steve Bennett, Chortle ****
“This darkly impressive debut is packed with countless elements rich, strange and deviantly chilling…” – The Scotsman ****
"Immersive and brilliant comedy… amongst the funniest double acts I’ve ever seen." – The Bristol Post.
As heard on BBC Radio 4.
Ben Clover

Ben Clover has a unique and clever preceptive on the world he uses to great effect on stage. His well disguised jokes and observations catch audiences unaware, and the writing is original enough to keep them engaged. For a “scripted” comedian, Clover is surprisingly comfortable riffing with the crowed. Indeed, he is also a warm and quick witted MC.
Ben has been doing stand-up for three-and-a-bit years, winning/finalisting competitions (BBC New Comedian, Laughing Horse, Piccadilly Comedy Club, Colchester Comedian of the Year).
As well as stand-up, he’s performed a one-man show about local newspapers at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival.
