I was born into the music industry, my Dad worked at Our Price…

You know HOTASBALLS are driven by Hip-Hop, good music and comedy, right? Well, Zadie Smiths’ younger brother Ben Smith/ Doc Brown seems to be gaining a few column inches due to his Edinburgh Fringe Festival performances this year, take a peek at a short clip from his routine from the end of 2009 [who knew he was a sibling of a bestselling British author? Answer, not us]

Evidently, the most important element in his routine is in full e f f e c t, the timing, and he’s comfortable ridiculing and recognising his cultural background. Unlike Frankie Boyle eg, Doc is a ‘safe’ comedian, and if he hasnt already, he’ll end up on Mock the Week. He’s also makin a rustle with a few actin jobs too, peep him in BBC doozy ‘Rev’

Shouts to Ben for throwin a comedic curve-ball at the UK Rap thing… It’ll be interestin to see how his progressive style of comedy transfers to stages in London and across the country, good luck to him we say

Doc Brown plays the Canary Wharf  Comedy Club on Tuesday 26 October and his next Central London performances are the weekend of 5 & 6 November on a boat on the Thames

One response to “I was born into the music industry, my Dad worked at Our Price…

  1. Good to see someone bringing some humour to the seriousness of UK rap at the moment.
    Reminds me of Richard Blackwood before he……what DID happen to him? He did a skit once about Westwood and his dubious birthplace past.

    Smith deserves to go far. Hope he does.
