Ben Willshaw has grown up on the mean streets of Vice City, spending his time with hookers and making a living by stealing cars and dealing in guns and drugs….. No wait sorry that’s Grand Theft Auto. That’s got nothing to do with Ben at all. . Ben Willshaw……Oh that’s right! Ben is a Western Sydney comedian who has grown up on the sunny streets of Penny Bay or, as pronounced by the locals in their native tongue, Penriff!* Ben has been performing comedy for over 2 years and has made a big impact performing at Sydney’s leading comedy venues. (Please note that ’10 Comedians for $10′ has edited some offensive material provided by Ben for this bio. If you want to be properly offended, pay your $10 and come and see Ben like everyone else). . In 2015 Ben wrote and performed his first solo show ‘Sticks & Stones’ and in a great indicator of the appeal of his comedy, the show sold out during its run at the Sydney Fringe Festival. . Ben’s humour consists of self-deprecating comedy along with over-the-top stories about events and experiences in his day to day life. Ben also likes to add a touch of crude humour to his material to cater to the inner westie in all of us, resulting in audience members laughing at topics that would normally be left unsaid. . When not performing at Sydney’s premier comedy venues, Ben also performs at charity events and weddings as an MC.
*Any similarity between Penriff and Grand Theft Auto is coincidental.
