Great Yorkshire Fringe Presents: “It’s NOT the Joshua Benson Show”

“It’s NOT the Joshua Benson Show” is all I was ever told as a kid... at school, college and home. So, I started doing kids parties, so that I could ‘show off’ for a living, to an audience of under 12s, who don't consider you a loser for doing magic! After 6 years (and counting) of being a family entertainer... it's time for my first show for grown ups.

A Mix of Magic, Juggling, Music, Comedy, Art and Poetry, as well as a display of how many M&M’s can be caught in the gob in 30 seconds; this is the ULTIMATE one-man cabaret.

“a great storyteller with some wisdom to impart.”

“super funny, utterly charming, completely bonkers and perfectly poignant. The astronomical levels of energy that Josh gives to his audience is infectious.”

“I laughed till I cried and cried till I laughed. You MUST see him. I’ve never met a performer who can capture an audience quite as well as he can.”

All quotes from audience members.

Running Time 75 minutes

Age Advisory 14+

Tickets £12 / £30 (Group of 3) from the Great Yorkshire Fringe website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
