Ben Bennett Smiles for YouTube, for Hours

Ben Bennett Smiles for YouTube, for Hours

Columbus, Ohio improvisor and performing experimenter Ben Bennett has taken up a curious hobby: sitting cross-legged in front of a webcam and livetreaming himself smiling for hours at a time. Known in the past for his use of extended technique on a variety of implements-- the page explaining his 2012 LP Spoilage on experimedia lists "various drums to a wheelbarrow, pizza cutter, and 'the narrow part of a balloon'"-- with videos of performances showing him blowing into a PVC pipe while stripped down to his skivies and crawling around while inside of a box.

Bennett is currently embarking his 26th live stream of "Sitting and Smiling." You can donate to him, contact him, or watch previous session on his website.
