BEN TONGE HAS DARK ENERGY
13 June 2021

Renowned comedy director Ben Tonge has joined the Dark Energy roster for representation.

Well respected throughout the industry for his astute comic timing and writing, Tonge joins the team at 15 Little Portland Street with a packed showreel. From compelling celebrity cameos to child performances, it's obvious at a glance that the director knows his stuff when it comes to making audiences chuckle.

A recent Talk Talk campaign demonstrates this knack for laughs in droll fashion, as Tonge mines the relatable foibles of screen time with a fantastical twist. We've all had that friend that just won't leave, but rarely are they done up in plate armour.



We love Benís contagious passion for comedy and all things creative, along with his enthusiasm and work ethic.

 ”

Other campaigns for major brands across all sectors prove that Tonge has a versatile approach to complement his sense of humour. It's this passion and relentless drive for more that drew Dark Energy's eye, and promise to make Tonge a valuable addition to their already impressive offer.

As founder and managing director Matt Brown explains: "We love Ben's contagious passion for comedy and all things creative, along with his enthusiasm and work ethic. Heís a great addition to the roster and we look forward to working with him more."
