Melbourne International Comedy Festival Directors' Choice Winner 2024

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?”.

What got him to this point and how do we move on after we’ve taken the first big steps?

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

After years of not being sober, now all Ben has is himself, a microphone and a fresh new hour of raw, hilarious comedy about hope, addiction and love. After a sold out run in Melbourne, this is his most raw and honest show ever.

Co-written and directed by creative and life partner Maggie Looke.
