Ross Bennett’s Stand-Up Comedy Show NEW YORK COUNTRY is a celebration of growing up and living in western New York State, that part of New York that is NOT New York City. Everything from snow days in the winter to water skiing on the lakes in the summer…living in the woods to shopping at Walmart…It’s love letter to the Southern Tier! Hosted by David Prejeant, from Sustainable Differences.

Ross Bennett is a veteran comedian (and btw, he’s also a Veteran!). In 2013, he appeared on THE LATE SHOW with David Letterman. Afterwards, as the audience’s applause continued to grow, David said one word… “Wow!” That pretty much sums up what people have been saying about Ross for over 25 years. He also stars on Sirius XM’s Comedy Channels, as well as being a recurring guest on The Bob and Tom Show (a popular morning radio show heard by over 5 million listeners daily).

Ross is a clean & clever comedian who mixes smart jokes with hilarious observations about his life and the world around him. His expressive delivery and unique stage presence makes his act a knockout, with great routines about growing up as a baby boomer with greatest generation parents in a small town in western New York State (he calls it “New York Country”).

Performing everywhere from casinos and cruise ships to country clubs, corporate events and private parties, Ross is also rapidly becoming a beloved staple within the ever-expanding condominium communities across the country.

Ross has literally traveled the world performing his Stand-Up Comedy and now he wants to come and entertain for you.

TV appearances include: THE LATE SHOW w/ David Letterman, Red Eye w/ Tom Shillue, Tough Crowd w/ Colin Quinn (5X), Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Stand-Up, Comedy Tonight (2X), Showtime’s Big Laff-Off, Evening at the Improv (4X), Dick Clark’s Keep on Cruisin’, Thick of the Night starring Alan Thicke, David Brenner’s Nite Life & Comic Strip Live

Critics acclaim:

"His rubbery face, skilled use of voices and careful writing make Ross one of the most watchable and memorable performers on the Comedy Club Circuit.”
San Francisco Examiner

"Ross has the most mobile, congenitally funny face…. It's a face that amplifies normal emotion and expression into wild caricature.”
San Francisco Chronicle

"One word describes his face. Marvelous!!! As I see it, Ross has it all. There's timing, pacing, feeling, communication and polish. All the ingredients that, at one time or another, lead to stardom.”
