Internationally renowned comedian and storyteller Jon Bennett (Pretending Things are a Cock, My Dad’s Deaths) is comedy on fire and storytelling on speed. He is bringing Fire in the Meth Lab back to Nelson for all those who missed out on the first sneaky drop - make sure to catch it this time round for an 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)
