Fire in the Meth Lab


Based on the show’s picture and title alone, I thought this would be a gritty drama and almost missed it. Don’t make that mistake. It’s very funny. Jon Bennett also created Pretending Things Are A Cock. If I had read that, I might have guessed

Fire in the Meth Lab is about writer and performer Jon Bennett’s life, particularly his childhood and relationship with his older brother who ends up in jail. Bennett is a confident, affable, and polished storyteller. He generously shares the most intimate details of his (and his brother’s) life and gives us permission to laugh at them.

I recommend taking a trip with Jon.
