Ben Russell


Part of Replay Festival

Friday 12 July, 7:30pm
Saturday 13 July, 4:30pm

Winner: Directors' Choice, Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2024

As seen on Thank God You're Here, Aunty Donna's House Of Fun (Netflix) and The Let Down.

After years of struggling with addiction Ben uses his new found sobriety as a jump off point to explore his past, his clear-headed present and ask “what’s next?”

Ben performs his first hour of stripped-back and revealing stand-up. A hilarious, raw and honest account of how Ben navigated the most transformative year of his life.

Winner: Moosehead Award 2022
Nominee: Golden Gibbo Award 2015
Nominee: Perth Fringe World Best Comedy 2017

“Rarely is the serious and the silly blended so effortlessly as his telling of this story.” ★★★★ Chortle (UK)  

“Thrillingly witty, filled with laser-sharp one-liners… it's also endearingly hopeful” ★★★★★ Funny Tonne  

“Unlike anything even the most seasoned festival-goer will have seen before.” ★★★★ The Age

Co-written and directed by Maggie Looke.
