Bennett Arron is Jewelsh

Stand-Up Comedian Bennett Arron has a unique perspective on life as he is both Jewish and Welsh. No joke. Although it is the starting point for jokes. In this comedy series, Bennett explores the foibles and insecurities of this seldom-seen cultural mix. Each episode takes a comic look as to how Bennett fits in, or tries to fit in, to different areas of British life using stand-up comedy interspersed with sketches.

To enhance the idea of two battling cultures within Bennett’s one head, two additional voices are featured regularly within the series. A neat twist on the notion of having an “angel” on one shoulder and a “devil” on the other, in Bennett’s world, he has a “Rabbi” on one, and a “Dragon” on the other. Both these voices crop up whenever Bennett needs advice, to give him help from their particular perspective. Although in truth they tend to be more of a hindrance than a help.

Bennett adapted this series from his highly acclaimed stage show, here are some press clipping from the show
