A Mulled Whine
NZ Fringe favourite Jon Bennett was once a great junior footballer in Southern Australia.
He was set to "MAKE IT" until he started playing with men… real men. Jon's football career came crashing down when a community tragedy made him re-evaluate his life.
Now a multi award-winning touring performer of festival phenomenon such as Pretending Things Are a Cock, Fire in the Meth Lab, How I Learned to Hug and my Dad's Deaths, it seems Bennett couldn't be further away from the football field. But Jon "Pretend Cocks Guy" Bennett can never run too far from tackling the big men.
A show about community, friendships, life, death, and a bit of football.

"The gifted story teller engaged the crowd so skilfully, within moments of the show starting you had the impression that you had known Jon since childhood. I couldn’t shake the disarming feeling of intimacy for the entire duration of the show." - CJLO Montreal
