Beloved New Zealand comic Ben Hurley is ready to take on the world.

As a young comedian, Ben dreamed of doing a gig in every country in the world, but after realising that was impractical he’s brought the world to him.

In Earth Planet World, the 7 Days star has given himself the global task of writing a joke about every country in the world.

In his biggest challenge to date, the multi-award-winning funny man stops off at 195 sovereign states in just 60 minutes.

From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, Taranaki-born Ben take us on a journey around our planet using his trademark humour as a highly efficient vehicle.

And what a ride.

This face-paced show is more bullet train than motorway traffic, and things will ramp up heading towards the countdown.

“He roars onto the stage with child-like energy and manages to keep himself - and the audience – buzzing throughout the entire hour.” - Metro magazine

To the point: Comic takes on world/jokes about every country, multi-award-winner, face-paced ride, trademark humour.
