Ben Bailey Smith
Ben Bailey Smith spent 10 years as a youth worker by day and as underground rapper Doc Brown by night, before picking up a gig tweaking comedy scripts for Lenny Henry led to Ben attempting stand-up for the first time in February 2008.
For the next decade Ben retained his old rap moniker and dominated the live comedy scene, before hanging up his mic to focus on acting, writing and producing. He has starred in the likes of Disney’s Star Wars: Andor, Amazon’s Cinderella and BBC’s The Split, written for TV, Film, Radio and Advertising, and has published six children’s books.
Shrink the Box will be Ben’s first ever podcast series and as both an actor and a long-term beneficiary of therapy himself, is the perfect co-host for a show that psychoanalyses iconic TV characters.
