Ben Darsow

Not only is Ben a refreshing talent in Australia, he is really the ideal stand up comedian if you’re after gut wrenching laughter and a great time!  Seriously, if you appreciate charm and personality, Ben is your ticket for an evening of fun and excitement.  Ben has had over 4 star reviews for his hit performances and solo shows in his very own hometown of Adelaide.  In fact, the Adelaide Advertiser has praised him as a seriously funny champion performer. Ben is a favorite and he is among many of the best Australian comics today. This guy is a true class act and entertains in amazing ways!

There is no rough around the edges with this class act at all, and his charm wows the audience each and every time he performs.  There is an instant connection with him because his material is heartfelt, though extremely funny.  Just as many other comedians carry that torch of passion for comedy, Ben seems to be in that same light.  What allows him to stand out is his extraordinary personality and his ability to get crowds up on their feet.  He entertains from the beginning to the end of each and every one of his performances.  Ben is also versatile too—he can work in a corporate environment and a more, down-to-earth, lain back environment as well.

The crowds appear to enjoy his originality and his interest in engaging with his audience as well.  He is not one of these comedians who scripts an act and performs it once a week.  In fact, Ben try’s to bring something new at each performance, and that is what people really like about him.  This is a smooth performer, one who knows what the audience craves when it comes to comedy.  You can be sure he is one who will consistently bring you what you’re looking for, and you won’t be disappointed.

Having previously seen Ben perform at a professional networking event, I was really keen for Ben to perform at the Fringe-themed Young Professionals Event hosted by Fox Tucker Lawyers in March 2013. Ben is everything you wish for in a comedian – subtle quick-wit, inclusive audience interaction and guaranteed entertainment.With an intelligent sense of humour, warm professionalism and a charming personality to boot, Ben was a hit – thankyou!

Ben was a great success.  As per usual we all had a good laugh.  He kept the swearing to a minimum as per our request, which I know would have been hard to do.  Thanks again for a great night I’m sure we will be in contact for next year’s event. Thanks

“Just wanted to let you know what a wonderful job Ben did last night.  He did 21 fun facts about Max which were really well received.  He did it all in good humour that appealed to our wide audience.  It was the pinnacle of the evening and it was also nice that Ben took some time and stayed with us until the end of the evening socialising with the ‘cousins’ which we all enjoyed. He is a lovely young man who I’m sure will go far. Thank you for your efforts in finding us the perfect comedian for our party” Cheers”

“Hi Ben, Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our function on Saturday night; your contribution was most certainly appreciated by all. You provided us with many laughs and many of which were the talk around our coffee machine this morning. The service on the night created a few hiccups which put us behind time, the wedding next door was definitely a distraction, but these things happen and we just have to work with it, and you did that!

It was lovely getting to know you Ben. Good luck with all your ventures for this year. We wish you great success.

Warm regards”   Louise Howie – Hyundai Motor Company Australia

“We had our event on Saturday night, and Ben was fantastic, exceeding our expectations. We had a real mix of audience, but he connected with them all and the laughs did not stop from the moment he got on stage until well after he was finished.

He was a pleasure to have, and I would recommend him for any function. Cheers ”

Daniel Webster – Yinnar Football & Netball Club

“Ben was great, he was more than happy to do anything we asked of him on the night. Ben had the audience in tears or laughter and to be honest they wanted to see more. The event was a huge success, please pass on our many thanks to Ben for the night.  PS thankyou”

Sam Lee – Nangiloc Football Club


Ben did a fantastic job and we were very happy with the performance! I would definitely recommend Ben to other venues.  Thanks again

“Thank you so much, yes the event was wonderful. We raised the most we have in this year than any of the years before so that is great for ICU.  Ben was amazing; he was perfect for this event with his material that was aimed at sport and men. It was hilarious and I had the pleasure of sitting at Ben’s table and he is a really nice guy!  We have never had a comedian before at the golf day so I think that made it a lot less corporate and a lot more fun for our audience. Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously, we have such great supporters and sponsors and to show them a good time as well with Ben coming along was just incredible. I’d like to thank Ben and yourselves for your amazing work and we hope to keep in contact for next year’s event.”

Thank you again. Warmest regards,
