Debut Stand-up hour from Ben Shannon about cats, growing up and being easily distracted. Itíll be really good, you should come. Oh, look a Goose! Ah no itís a duck, shame.

I've been doing stand-up comedy for around 5 years now and I've found out some things, come to this show (it's free, which is really cool) I'll tell you lots of them and explain about stuff I thought when growing up and how some of it didn't quite work out how I thought it would. (Winks to camera)

There will be poems too! Maybe a prop? It's 2017 guys. Anything could happen, look how freely I move from 1st to 3rd person in this description alone. The training wheels are off. Ben says they were never even on.

I think it'll be fun. Hope to see you there!

At 23 years old Ben has already had some very nice things said
About him when he says words out of his face on a stage:

"A likeable presence whose relaxed hand on the tiller eases the audience into the situation, combining a light-hearted patter and confidence beyond his years.Ē - Three Weeks

ďHe quickly gains a rapport with the audience, a consistently amusing set, plenty of laughs.Ē - Broadway Baby

"Youthful cheek and ideas that belie his years. Come and see him now, before he gets massive" - Laughing Coyote Comedy Clubs
