Hey Fatso! (2012)[2]

In 2011, Devlin took a course in sports nutrition. He’d already had experience in transforming his body and lifestyle. This resulted in a total of eight stones weight loss. With all the knowledge and personal experience, he wrote this self help, motivational book.

Poetic Angst (2017)[3]

Since childhood, Devlin had suffered with anxiety. As an adult he would experience addiction and mental health problems. These experiences helped guide him to this next project. Poetic Angst is a book of poems, all written by Ben Devlin. It covers anxiety, addiction, instinct and trust.

A book of adult jokes, Unearthed from the depths of depravity! (2020) As Bernie Frasier.[4]

Devlin always had an interest in comedy and even though had never participated in stand up, he decided his next project to be a comical one. Under the name Bernie Frasier, he wrote this collection of adult humour. The jokes consisted of a few one liners but mainly lengthy jokes.

His style of comedy is centred around misdirection and bad taste. Often pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable, he had removed one or two jokes before the book was finished. He decided they were not so funny, but more disturbing and hadn’t earned their place within the book.

Emotional and Gentle. Chaotic Crazy Mental! (2020) As Benjamin J Devlin.[5]

Ben Devlin’s second book of poetry.

These poems however, were an erratic collection of humour, horror, serial killers and an honest look at particular walks of life.

Also touching on how we as a society perceive something or someone and how that someone may perceive themselves.

In 2018 Devlin wrote a poem consisting of three parts about a fictional stand up comedian called Bernie Frasier. The poem, titled ‘The fall and rise of Bernie Frasier, was exactly what it says on the tin. An ageing comic gets another chance in the spotlight!

‘The fall and rise’ was finally released within Devlin’s second poetry book ‘emotional and gentle’ along with the prequel ‘Bernie Meets World’.

Ben Devlin would use the name Bernie Frasier as his pseudonym for his ‘Unearthed from the depths of depravity! ‘ joke book.
