Ben McCarthy, comedian, on the road to…Nevermind

After a sold out season at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Ben McCarthy is here in Penrith at The Joan with a brand new show Ben McCarthy: Nevermind.

Nevermind sees Ben up the ante as he amalgamates wit, banter, seemingly honest and personal recital of absurd occurrences and dry sarcastic comedy. Impossible to list every topic, expect a bunch of everyday life experiences and jokes about meeting famous people, Australian accents, handling hecklers and naturally one of the most reliable comical topics - dating lives.

As a performer, he is charming and garners the audience’s goodwill with a natural air of hilarity, light cynicism and a hint of self-depreciation. A down to earth affable bloke. – Beat.

One of Australia’s youngest stand-up comedians, Ben has had sold out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, a sold out theatre showcase season and sold out his first ever Australian tour. This show has something to offer everyone.

Make sure you don’t miss out on a really good old fashion belly laugh. Grab your tickets today online at or box office for Saturday 17 February 2018 and join him on the road to Nevermind.

Duration 60 minutes, warning this show contains course language, sexual references and adult themes, recommended 15+
