Internationally renowned comedian and storyteller Jon Bennett is comedy on fire and storytelling on speed. After his Pretending Things are a Cock was a massive success last year, he is back in the 'Stings with Fire in the Meth Lab - another hour of comedy that is meaningful, bizarre, hilarious and true.

“This show will make you laugh, even after you’ve left the venue. ★★★★★” – Vue Weekly (CAN)

The show is a shocking and chaotic tale about Bennett’s brother, told with both charismatic hilarity and heart-warming, poignant reflection. It’s a story of drug dealers, bikers, high-speed car chases, fights, crime, prison, vomit, exploding houses, and even cancer.

“Bennett has an uncanny and unnerving ability to make you crease up with laughter before dropping a perfectly timed bombshell. ★★★★” - Time Out (UK)
