Multi award-winning Australian Storytelling Comedian Jon Bennett is back! This time with two of his shows! Pretending Things are a Cock and Fire in the Meth Lab!

Monday 19th - Pretending Things are a Cock
Wednesday 21st - Fire in the Meth Lab

- Pretending Things are a Cock is the product of Bennett’s three years of global wandering, and combines the artistic, phallic-filled photographic display with hilarious and surprisingly heart-wrenching tales from Bennett’s life.

This Just for Laughs award-nominated show for Best Comedy has now been performed to sell-out audiences and critical acclaim world wide. The show has toured to some of the biggest festivals in the world including the renowned Edinburgh Fringe (2012) and Just for Laughs Zoofest in Montreal (2013).

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

- Fire in the Meth Lab - Renowned Australian storyteller Jon Bennett tells the amazingly sordid and bizarre story of his brother’s life. A sometimes shocking and chaotic tale, Bennett recounts his brother’s experiences with both charismatic hilarity and heart-warming, poignant reflection.

Fire in the Meth Lab tells of drug dealers, bikers, high-speed car chases, fights, crime, prison, vomit, exploding houses and even cancer. The show explores brotherly relationships and how siblings with the same upbringing can choose very separate paths.

“Bennett is the patron saint of storytelling. ★★★★★” – Broadway Baby (UK)

"Stories as funny as they are heart-warmingly honest. You will laugh, but you will also tear up at the honesty he brings to the stage. ★★★★★" - National Post

“Hilarious. ★★★★★" – Edmonton Sun (CAN)

"Bennett is an elite comedian with a masterful delivery, sense of timing, and superlative writing skills. ★★★★★" – Theatre In London

With support from Comedian Magician Logan Kitney!
