Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Mike Wazowski are all icons of comedy, but their decades of experience pale in comparison to the simple act of one local legend. Jack Bennett (21), a Commerce/Business Management student with a penchant for Coronas and stolen Netflix passwords, has rocked the comedy world to its very foundations.
What did he do, you ask? How did his razor-sharp wit, and daring style, capture the laughter and adoration of all who appreciate quality comedy? It’s simple. Almost so simple, you’ll ask how you’d never done it before.
After a friend bought him a six-pack, Jack had to transfer that friend $18. The CommBank app shone its yellow light into Jack’s eyes, and cast inspiration into his heart. When the app asked from a description of the humble money transfer, Jack’s chubby thumbs moved to the keypad, delicately typing out those fateful words.
Zinger. By suggesting the financial transfer was in fact for illegal narcotics, and not lager beer, Jack utilised the old art of deception in aid of comedy brilliance.
Who would look at the statement, and notice drug money? The Australian Federal Police? Jack’s Mum? Whomever would gaze upon this statement would be subject to a prank known only to Jack, making him the puppetmaster of prose, the Sultan of satire, the Alpha of absurdity.
Jack is reportedly planning to take this gag on tour, sharing his insight and wisdom with crowds ranging from his friend Tom, who lives in Bulimba, and Mark, who resides in a cupboard under the stairs in Runcorn. Truly a cross-country comedy spectacular!
Reports indicate he has several new jokes prepared, including pressing ‘Enter’ on a friends laptop whilst they’re typing a message in order to make them look like a bit of an idiot, or yelling ‘put your dick away!’ in the background whilst his friends are on the phone.
Hopefully, no more to come.
