(Edfest 2004 – 2007), created his original comedy characters Rajesh – Bollywood Lounge singer & Candice the Fluffer Girl continually performing on the cabaret, variety & burlesque circuit since 2006, and has had over 25,000 hits on Comedybox online with his awe-inspiring act of performing 52 impressions in just 5 minutes!

Since 2008, he has become known as ‘the Stand-Up Chameleon’ and had a smashing 2009 Edinburgh festival run with his show of the same title, earning him a commission by BBC Comedy Extra for a 4 sketch mini series entitled How To Impersonate.

Ben Darsow is on fire after a sell-out Perth Fringeworld, 4.5 star Adelaide Fringe and triumphant return to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016.

This closely follows a breakout tour of the USA and Canada last year.

Ben combines clever observational humour with free-flowing audience interaction and performs with an undeniable joy for the craft.
