How I Learned To Hug

 

Review


Jon Bennet is not a terrorist; he just likes to pretend that things are his cock. From the fast-paced start, Jon Bennet uses his unique humour, and hilarious powerpoint imagery to tell a tale of heartbreak, hugging and running away. How I learned to Hug is told to us as Jon is detained by a female Jay-Z look-alike airport security officer at the Montreal airport—after a bag search reveals a can of pepper spray that he pretended was his cock. The show quickly has the audience engaged as he recreates a childhood trauma with their help. Bennet is an amazing storyteller, and has an infectious way of invoking affection. A recurring theme of How I learned to Hug is heartbreak, and Jon does a terrific job of mixing just the right amount of sorrow with humour. The story moves along quickly, and Jon fills the room with memories of his awkward childhood growing up in Australia, his awkward adulthood, and a ton of dick jokes. How I learned to Hug is as charming as it is raunchy, and you can’t help but relate to Bennet’s nostalgia invoking ramblings. The narrative is delivered from an almost auctioneer-like pace but it's easy to follow along. This is one show you’ll want to enjoy again with friends, but please leave your pepper spray at home.
