Biography

Ben Moor is an acclaimed comedy writer and performer for theatre, radio and television.

He regularly performs at festivals such as Latitude and The Port Eliot Festival. As an Edinburgh Festival veteran, he has starred in an eclectic and entertaining mix of one-man shows including It Takes Forever If You Go By Inertia and A Supercollider For The Family. 

Ben's 2005 stage show Coelacanth was highly praised The Financial Times, which said of it, "Such odd yet perfectly crafted miniature jewels are the essence of Fringe magic." Ben later adapted the show as a Radio 4 play.
