Before he became better known for pretending things were his cock, Jon Bennett began his comedy career doing regular stand up shows at the age of 19.

After a brief foray into TV and radio, which included writing and acting in Channel 31 comedy shows such as the award-winning The Ugly Stick, Bennett decided to change to a more storytelling style of comedy.

In 2007, he began performing in storytelling nights around Melbourne, including Northcote’s popular Willow Tales, which he now hosts.

In 2009, Bennett realised his talent for placing his groin next to inanimate objects and created the hugely popular internet photographic phenomenon Pretending Things Are a Cock. What started as a joke between friends has now spawned a successful book, exhibition and countless critically-acclaimed live performances.

The PTAAC live show has wowed audiences the world over, with Bennett bringing his phallus-laden performances to comedy festivals in Melbourne, Vancouver, Just For Laughs in Montreal, Edmonton, Winnipeg and the Edinburgh Fringe. PTAAC was also nominated for Montreal’s Just for Laughs Best Comedy award in 2010.

Aside from his prolific cock-making tendencies, Bennett continues to perform and tell stories around the globe. He hosts several storytelling nights around Melbourne, and has brought his stories to Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Montreal, London, Edinburgh and New York, where he has performed at several of the famous The Moth storytelling nights where in 2013 he won The Moth Story Slam.

In 2012, Bennett introduced his show My Dad’s Deaths at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and also toured extensively throughout Europe and North America earning him a 2nd Just For Laughs Award Best Comedy Award nomination. ‘My Dad’s Deaths’ performed to sell out crowds and glowing 5 star reviews in the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe.

In 2013, Jon presented his newest show, Fire in the Meth Lab, the unbelievable story of Bennett’s wayward older brother. The show has received glowing reviews from it’s debut performances at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Perth Fringe (Best Comedy Nominee), and the Montreal Fringe Festival where he was nominated for a 3rd time for the Just For Laughs Award for Best Comedy and the Centaur Award for Best Production.

In 2014 Bennett is touring world wide with his 4 one man shows. PTAAC was awarded the converted ‘Critic’s Choice Award’ in the San Diego Fringe and the latest show ‘Story Whore’ received great reviews and a 4th nomination for the Just for Laughs Award in Montreal. Jon took an impressive 3 separate shows to the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe: Pretending Things are a Cock, Fire in the Meth Lab and his first foray into a family friendly show called AAA Batteries which sold out the entire run of 26 shows!
