Ben Darsow is an overnight success story 20 years in the making.

After stints playing professional basketball & elite golf, Benny has spent the last decade full-time out on the road developing into one of the strongest and most versatile live standup comedians in Australia.

Ben's style is relaxed yet playfully energised, blending well-crafted material with improvised audience banter to create in-¬the-moment comedy gold.

You can catch Benny throughout Australia's comedy & fringe festivals, hosting & headlining the premier comedy clubs in the country (including The Sydney Comedy Store, Perth Comedy Lounge and Brisbane's Sit Down Comedy Club), touring the mining communities of WA, featuring on P&O Comedy Cruises around the Pacific Islands, adding entertainment to golf days/corporate events/sporting club fundraisers and even appearing at boutique private occasions.

In the last few years Ben has also begun to venture internationally, headlining Vancouver's Comedy Mix, Kuala Lumpur's Crackhouse Comedy Club and America's oldest comedy club The Pasadena Ice House.
