Multi award-winning Australian comedian and storyteller Jon Bennett (Pretending Things are a C*ck, Fire in the Meth Lab) is back.

Not a love story but a story of love, loss, sex and hugging told to an airport security guard resembling a combination of the rapper Jay-Z and Beyonce while detained as a suspected terrorist in the Montreal Airport.

A true story.

**Tour Ready Award (New Zealand Fringe Festival, 2018)

**Best Comedy Award Nominee (Perth Fringe World, 2015)

**Just for Laughs Award nomination for Best Comedy (Montreal Fringe, 2014)

“It seems every year that we say Bennett’s show is a must-see and this year’s no different. He has skillfully built upon the foundation that previous shows establish and we are left with a unique blend of gut-busting laughter and emotional resonance in his wake." - Theatre in London

"Bennett’s stories are as funny as they are heart-warmingly honest. You will laugh at the hilarious slide show he has prepared, but you will also tear up at the honesty he brings to the stage." - National Post

"Storytelling genius." - Edmonton Journal

“Laugh-out-loud bonkers!" - Otakuno Culture

"Bennet is an amazing storyteller." - Vue Weekly

“The rumours are true – Bennett possesses a masterful narrative skill, taking us on a journey full of heartbreak, joy and a whole lot of dick jokes. He brings depth to the dumb stuff and levity to the heavy stuff, and is totally unafraid of revealing the most brutally personal details of his life story.“ - SBS Television (Melbourne)

"While it’s true that everyone has a story, not everyone knows how to tell it. Bennett is a tremendously gifted storyteller, striking a note-perfect mix between observational humour and revealing insights." - Winnipeg Free Press

Opening the show will be the magical Logan Kitney

Pre sales $15 +bf
Door sales $20
A few $10 early birds available
