Tickets are now on sale for BUG 41 at the BFI Southbank next month – and with Adam Buxton taking a sabbatical from hosting duties for the next few months, this BUG show will be the first to be presented by a special guest host: it's the multi-talented comedian, actor, writer and recording artist Doc Brown. 

Doc Brown – aka Ben Bailey Smith – started out as a battle rapper, before joining Mark Ronson's live band, and then went on to launch his stand-up comedy career before embarking on a successful writing and acting career on TV and film.

Ben's CBBC TV series 4 O'Clock Club – which he created and also starred in - has won a BAFTA, and he's currently filming his first primetime starring role in top British TV cop show, Law & Order UK. Meanwhile, Ben continues to perform stand-up as Doc Brown, has just signed a book deal – and he's also developing a music-based project with Ricky Gervais having appeared alongside him in Derek and The Return of Brent for Comic Relief 2013.

Now Ben is making time in his busy schedule to host a double-bill of BUG 41 on Friday, February 28th, and bringing his take to the world of music videos while presenting the medium's most creative new work.

Tickets for the two shows of BUG 41, at 18.30 and 20.45, are now on sale at the BFI website or call the BFI Southbank box office on tel: 020 7928 3232.
