*Ben Van Der Velde: Sidekick *Some people are life’s heroes: leading men and women full of swash, buckle and derring-do. Oth-ers just hold their jackets. 
Ben Van der Velde has been peeping out through his drawn curtains and isn’t feeling too sure about the future for him, his wife or his vaguely imminent kids. The world seems like a tinderbox ready to explode and he’s not prepared for the fallout. He’s on the hunt for a hero to see him through World War 3 (and possibly 4 or 5), whilst trying to find any upsides in the life of a perennial sidekick.
Join Ben as he salutes the Barney Rubbles, Boo-Boos and Dr Watsons of the world. 

‘A sharp and crafty gagsmith, with wittily obtuse takes on…an impressively wide range of top-ics…bringing flair and confidence to them all.’ Steve Bennett, Chortle
‘Highly promising…an accomplished comic.’ Time Out
‘Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue.’ Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
‘Turns lazy stereotypes and political messes into biting, personal, satire.’
 ★★★★ Ed Fringe Review 
‘On flights of fancy, he pushes ideas to extremes and displays a crackling, spontaneous energy in which we’re swept up.’ Fest
‘He must have one of the highest jokes-per-hour counts in Edinburgh this month.’ 
★★★★★ Reviews Hub, 2016
