Description

Ben is milleni-ill. He’s in his 30s, nothing has turned out the way he hoped and society now is just folks screaming at each other on Twitter. It's legit exhausting. A show about anxiety, identity, keeping up with the world and trying better for yourself, join him as he drinks some wine and works out his ridiculous life crap, and tries to come out of it a person. 'Clever, acerbic wit' (Skinny). 'Sharp writing... Dry, beautifully timed' (Scotsman). 'Enjoyably naughty' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Very much worth your while' (Comedy.co.uk).

The Wee Review (3/5 stars) 12 days ago

With a mop of shaggy hair, and a shirt just almost too open at the neck, Ben Verth strides onto the Monkey Barrel stage. With his right hand on the mic, the left gesturing emphatically, he begins to lament the empty rows of chairs which, after the hour, you can...

How do you market a show called ‘Sh*tegeist’? Just say it’s “white guy moaning” and the moody cynics will come crawling in.
