Once again Ben Elton delivers the goods
6 May 2001 | by ClarkF1See all my reviews

Ben Elton IS a comic genius.

He can turn the dullest subject into something hilarious.

In this his latest live offering, Ben Elton talks about various subjects including infertility and IVF (of which he has experience and was the subject of his film Maybe Baby).

While I heard most of the material before on his TV show, it was refreshing to see a whole theatre of all ages laughing, crying with delight (and also cringing).

It has to be 10/10, a video to cheer you up and that you can never tire of......even if you know what all the gags are
