Ben Bailey Smith (1977) known by the stagename Doc Brown, is a British rapper, comedian, actor, screenwriter and voiceover artist born in North-West London. Being a son of two cultures (his mother is from Jamaica and his father an Englishman) he manages to combine a deep emotional voice with proper and precise language. His songs are usually political and patriotic, although containing some humour. Once an underground rapper who worked with, among others De La Soul and Mark Ronson, Ben “Doc Brown” Smith put down one mic and picked up another in 2008 after working as a “slang consultant” on a Lenny Henry sitcom, Rudy's Rare Records for BBC Radio 4.
Encouraged by various BBC producers and writers, Doc played his first ever stand up gig in February 08, and at the Edinburgh Festival of that year he reached the final of the annual So You Think You’re Funny? competition. Since hitting the road as a professional stand up in October 2008, Doc has now become a headline act, as well as an accomplished comedic writer with credits on Radio 4's The Now Show and a bonafied comic actor with roles in CBBC's Big Babies, C4's The Inbetweeners and Ben Miller's forthcoming movie Huge, to name but a few.
