Internationally award-winning storyteller and comedian, Jon Bennett, is one of the world’s most prolific touring performers – and now he’s back in the 'Stings with his most popular show!Pretending Things are a Cock is the product of Bennett’s three years of global wandering and combines an artistic, phallic-filled photographic display with hilarious and surprisingly heart-wrenching tales from Bennett’s life.

“Instantly likeable, Bennett is a deft storyteller with a frank, confessional style that blends pathos and humour to great effect. ★★★★½” – Uptown Magazine (CAN)

A unique stand-up experience, Pretending Things are a Cock is a hilarious, but also strangely affecting, pot-holed journey into the idiosyncratic world of Jon Bennett.

“The show is about more than Jon telling funny stories on stage. It is the beginning of a friendship in which you are his confidant. It is why after the show he invites you to have a beer with him, and why I feel comfortable calling him by his first name.”- Newshit Magazine (AUS)

“At the end of this hilarious and thoughtful hour, no one seems to want to leave the room. ★★★★” – Edmonton Journal (CAN)
