David Benson as Boris Johnson

Following a sold-out Edinburgh Fringe 2015 premiere, satirical comedy Boris: World King comes to London. With his days as Mayor of London numbered, Britain’s favourite comedy politician casts himself in another leading role: the star of his own West End show. This gaffe-a-minute comedy sees the thinking man’s idiot wobbling on the brink of power. This rollicking tale packs in pay-as-you-go bikes, wiff-waff, and an ancient Greek lecture for good measure. Before long, verbal slips, trips and divine interruption cue a new battle – for his very political existence. Boris Johnson: politician, columnist, biographer, TV personality, eighth cousin of David Cameron, and one of GQ magazine’s Worst Dressed Men. And now, appearing nightly at the West End theatre closest to Downing Street!

David Benson stars as Boris Johnson. He is best known for his many solo shows including the Fringe First awardwinning Think No Evil of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams and Lockerbie: Unfinished Business. He played the Head Waiter in the original National Theatre production One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden, completing over one thousand performances.

19 April – 14 May 2016 (Mon – Sat 7.45pm plus Thur and Sat matinees at 3pm - Opening night Thur 21 April at 7pm) at the Trafalgar Studios.
