"My first wife died. My second wife, wouldn't." That perfectly written and executed joke reveals a lot about the comic talent and twist Ross Bennett possesses and provides.
In a community overwhelmingly populated by those who lean left, Ross is the son of a Marine who made it as far as West Point, before chucking it all to dive into the rock solid uncertainty of life in comedy in the 1980s. Three decades later, Ross continues to validate his decision by continuing to work and grow and accomplish new goals along his path through comedy.
One major goal Ross ticked off his list was his appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman at the age of 58, which until someone proves otherwise, makes him the oldest comic to make his debut on that show. This is a great schmooze for any fan of stand-up comedy
