introduction

"I WANTED TO GET INVOLVED WITH NOISE FESTIVAL BECAUSE, PERSONALLY, I HAVE MANAGED TO MAKE A CAREER IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS WITH NO INITIAL CONTACT WHATSOEVER. I WAS NOT BORN INTO THIS, I DID NOT HAVE MONEY TO GET ME INTO IT, AND I WAS NOT SLEEPING WITH SOMEBODY WHO WAS RUNNING THE INDUSTRY! I JUST WORKED HARD AND I BELIEVED IN MYSELF."

Former underground rapper Doc Brown aka Ben Bailey Smith has performed with some of the biggest names in UK music, like Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen. In 2008, he busted onto the stand up comedy scene, collaborating with likes of comedy greats such as Ricky Gervais along the way. Doc’s also played the world’s major comedy festivals including Edinburgh, Melbourne and Montreal, before playing Wembley Stadium in 2013 for Comic Relief’s “Give It Up” benefit. Founder of ‘Bust-A-Gut Productions’, Ben’s a multi-skilled genius, flexing his BAFTA Award-winning talents across screenwriting, music-making and acting. His small screen endeavours include BBC2’s “Miranda”, Channel 4’s “The Inbetweeners” and he’s the new lead detective in “Law & Order UK” for ITV1. In 2012, “The 4-o-Clock Club” premiered, which is a teen comedy-drama co-created, co-written and co-musically directed by Ben.
