Mark Benjamin is quite possibly, a comedic genius. His timing, delivery, and content stays consistent as he pulls the audience into his world of humor. A world, that they have no idea how much they are about to enjoy. Upon introduction, he graces the stage sporting a casual and calm demeanor, which later induces the realization that it was nothing short of being- the quiet before the storm. Equipped with an arsenal of jokes, Benjamin is as relentless with his punchlines as the audience is with their reactive belts of laughter throughout his performance.
Benjamin’s matter-of-fact approach to observational humor makes you feel like you’re simply having a friendly conversation with him. Except, in this instance, “haha” is the only repeated word you can manage to contribute while he does the rest of the talking. Super likable, he succeeds at winning over the audience with his impromptu side notes of humorous clarifications, and sometimes even vocalizing his approval/disapproval of the crowd’s reaction to any given bit, all in jest of course. His jokes are not only funny, they’re refreshingly intelligent. He finds a way to take the simplest topics and scenarios and highlights what we were all thinking about them without any of us realizing we were ever thinking about them at some point or another in the first place.
Quick, witty, and relatable- sitting through one of Benjamin's sets feels like a one man show that leaves you anxiously waiting for the next topic and wondering where the time went when it's over. Like they say, time flies when you’re having fun, and that’s what you get when you’re in Mark Benjamin’s world… a whole lot of effortless fun.
