Jon Bennett Story Whore

Review by Mika Tsoi

Bennett, out of family members to tell stories about, turned the focus on himself and the love(s) of his life. Set in Montreal airport, Bennett had to explain a contraband item to a customs agent in the least fun way to experience border security. Through awkward unfiltered blurting and Forrest Gumping, he showed his control of rhythm, tension and release, delivery and emphasis to rivet the audience until the end of the epilogue. Titled Story Whore, an apt title would also have been Story Boss Man.
