Vancouver Fringe Festival 2018 – Jon Bennett: How I Learned to Hug

Likely the funniest show at this year’s festival, Jon Bennett: How I Learned to Hug is a touching and hilarious must-see at the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.

This Gem of a show was a late addition to the 2018 lineup (replacing The Silent House at the very last minute), and thus is not in the printed program guide.  For that reason, it might not be on a lot of people’s radar, but Jon Bennett: How I Learned to Hug is easily the best show I’ve seen so far this festival.  Despite being peppered  with sad and heartwarming moments, I still felt like I was laughing the entire time.  This show was a true pleasure to attend, from the moment it began.

We were a small audience (10:15pm on a Saturday night, at a show that wasn’t in the program guide…); my only regret was that there weren’t more people there to enjoy this delightful performance.
