Things to do - The Liar’s Bench Comedy Show

There is no greater power on this earth than a story! Come join us for a comedic storytelling event like no other.



An evening of Newfoundland Comedy, Songs, Stories & Recitations with Dave Penny, Harry Ingram and Ken Parsons.

Harry Ingram grew up in Arnold’s Cove in a house full of stories, music and laughter. A talented orator, his stories focus on the funny side of everyday life – a perfect combination of sentiment and humour. Harry is a staunch believer in the traditions of storytelling and enjoys sharing the works of great performers such as Leo O’Brien, John Joe English and Baxter Wareham. Whether it’s a talking moose or a Yankee Privateer, Harry knows his way around a great story.

Ken Parsons loves Newfoundland Labrador and it shows in his recitations. Spending summers growing up in Bonavista Bay he has created “Raisin Arm”, an imaginary Newfoundland community full of “heart warming stories” and “all kinds of foolishness”. The everyday joys and fun of local culture are always “just down the arm”. As an accomplished magician you’re sure to see Ken pull a trick or two out of his sleeve during some of his stories.
