Established comedy director, Ben Tonge has joined the Dark Energy family!
The choice between playing professional cricket and a career in comedy was made all the easier by Tonge not being good enough to bat at number 4 when the pressure was really on.
Having scraped an English literature degree from Goldsmith’s in London, Tonge joined a production company in Manchester and quickly became a terrible production runner. They liked having him around so he was given a last chance as director's assistant. Finally. There seemed to be a fit.
He then took to writing and to stand up comedy and it all clunked and creaked slowly into place.
We love Ben’s contagious passion for comedy and all things creative, along with his enthusiasm and work ethic. He’s a great addition to the roster and we look forward to working with him more.
