With an irresistible blend of characters, sketches and songs in this new hour of comedy from the solo show star best known for his multi award-winning 'Think No Evil Of Us: My Life With Kenneth Williams'. Nominated as Best Solo Show in The Stage Awards, Why Pay More explains how an unexpected move to Edinburgh led to Benson becoming an actor, with some fantastic cameos from the cast of characters that helped along the way.
