Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Monday 30th April 2018
Experience a short storytelling performance with a Q&A and special guests followed by a workshop by professional touring comedian and storyteller Jon Bennett (Fire in the Meth Lab, Pretending Things are a Cock, How I Learned to Hug, The Moth Mainstage).
The (loose) aim of the workshops is to leave attendees with an idea for a story or show of their own, the framework for that show along with knowledge of how to take your show on the road. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to create and tell a 5-minute story of their own. The workshop will be interactive and geared around the ideas and intentions of the attendees.
Jon Bennett is a world renowned comedic storyteller and 7 X Just for Laughs Award nominee.
Jon’s comedy career began in his homeland Australia, and after 14 years in the business, he is now known as one of the most prolific storyteller-comedians touring the world.
With a total of 8 one-hour-long individual comedy shows and appearing in over 65 festivals, Jon is constantly performing across the globe making people laugh through exceptional comedic storytelling.
