Douglas MacArthur attended West Point and became a war hero. Dwight Eisenhower attended West Point and became the President of the United States. Ross Bennett attended West Point and became …. A COMEDIAN????.
The late 70’s were a different era, and West Point admitted a slightly different kind of cadet when Ross Bennett was sworn in on July 8, 1975. But by 1977 Ross had decided that he wanted to take aim and fire jokes at nightclub audiences. So Ross mounted a giant career change, he dropped out, and landed Right Square in the middle of the comedy explosion that would take America by storm.
For over 25 years Ross has led a comedy attack. With an expressive delivery and topics that encompass growing up with a retired Marine Colonel father (a nice mellow guy!), grade school snow days, disastrous golf games, and catastrophic water skiing outings. ROSS BENNETT…a high-powered performer who takes his act to the audience and comes back with a victory every-time!!
He has been called a must-see for every Comedy Connoisseur. Appearing at the JUST FOR LAUGH’S COMEDY FESTIVAL IN 2004. TV appearances include COMEDY CENTRAL’S TOUGH CROWD w/ COLIN QUINN (4), EVENING AT THE IMPROV (4), COMIC STRIP LIVE, COMEDY TONIGHT (2), ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT, DAVID BRENNER’S NITE LIFE, LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, and many others.
