How’s jail? Is it just like the movies? How many cigarettes does it cost for a picture of a naked lady? Are you getting really strong? I won't ask any of the scary questions…yet. I’ll save that for the show.
So I’m writing a show about you. Is that ok? You’re in jail so you can’t really say no...
This story involves drug dealers, bikers, high-speed car chases, fights, crime, prison, vomit, exploding houses and cancer. It’s the story of a man who has cheated death numerous times, yet been so badly hurt it makes you wonder how he can be both one of the most insane yet unbelievably fortunate people alive.
This man is my brother.
This is Breaking Bad with a lot more bad and a lot more breaking.
”A master storyteller. ★★★★" Time Out Magazine
"Jail, Jason Donovan, bikie gangs, therapy and all the unsavoury memories of childhood come together in this addictive morality tale"

"He’s best known for a show called Pretending Things Are A Cock, but in this skilful slice of storytelling, Jon Bennett has most definitely matured."

"Jon Bennett sets the gold standard in storytelling. This show is powerful, brutally honest, and drenched in the rich humour of pathos. This is unlike any other show you’ll find at the festival. This is my pick of the festival so far."
