I first came across Doc Brown when watching performers at the Edinburgh Fringe. Soon after I saw an episode of Comedy Rocks on ITV in which he performed brilliantly. Ever since I have been a big fan and think he is one of the most under-rated comedians in Britain at the moment, who could certainly go a lot further. He now not only performs funny gigs but is also an actor. Let’s spread the word about this talented man by sharing his good work!
If you like Doc he has a variety of audio downloads and music releases you can buy. Look out for his gig tickets as well to catch him live.
Here is one of his best routines, this is called ‘My Proper Tea’.
Proper Tea Lyrics
Here are the lyrics, then watch the video below them!
- I don’t know what the fuck I was thinking,
I bring you to my house as a friend in my kitchen,
You offered to make the tea naturally I said yes your my guest so I take the offer gratefully,
But then what I see made my heart burst,
You’ve only gone and put the fucking milk in first!
- No you must be out of your mind,
Looks like you went and poured about half a pint,
Now even with the boiling water my teas already lukewarm,
Man where the fuck were you born,
Nah you destroyed the thing that was sacred,
Pour it down the sink let me show you how to make it.
- Tea bag in first pour the water on top,
Shut up man I’ll tell you when to stop,
Then you know exactly how much milk is required,
Making assumptions on how I like it,
Whoa whoa whoa what you doing don’t let the tea bag sit there brewing,
You gotta stir straight away don’t stop,
Otherwise you get that weird scum on the top.
- And now you put my sugar in, what’d you leave it for,
Didn’t even stir it in you’re unbelievable,
What did you think it would disintegrate itself,
Bruv you need to go and see a shrink and get some help,
You chose the wrong brothers cuppa to mess with,
Now go and get me a mother fucking digestive,
Stay away the hell from my cup bitch,
Don’t even meddle with my kettle don’t touch it,
Man go sit down go watch tele,
And give me back my teaspoon bruv you’re not ready.
Ben Bailey Smith, who performs under the name Doc Brown, is a performing artist specializing in rap, stand-up comedy, and a combination of the two.
Born in London in 1997, Smith had spent most of his life as a rap artist until 2008, when he decided to move into stand-up comedy. Despite his inexperience, he performed well enough to reach the final eight of a national British talent show called “So You Think You’re Funny.”
Since then, he has become a full-fledged comedy star, performing at notable London locations like the Soho Theater and teaming up with Ricky Gervais for a tour in Norway. Brown has recently leveraged his exposure as a rap comedian to break into television, taking acting roles in British television shows such as “Rev” and “Miranda”, as well as co-directing “4’O Clock Club” with Mikis Michaelides on BBC. For this show, Brown also starred, created music, and wrote. To his efforts in television, Brown adds four released music albums and a variety of comedy appearances across the world.
