At the Deaf Studies 2012 Conference Ben Jarashow did a performance that was Outstanding. Ben uses his entire body in bringing to life whatever topic he is focusing on and he is hilarious with his presentation. He keeps the audience laughing and wanting more. His presentation keeps one on an emotional edge waiting for the next punch to hit our funny bone. Ben’s presentation is good for all audiences. He is a rare actor that is able to intertwine humor in a way that keeps the audience attention.
Ben is perhaps the most entertaining storyteller I’ve ever seen. He is a ASL storyteller in the truest and finest form: one who can present stories about the most mundane subjects and present tellings that capture the senses and the imagination. Ben’s stories take full advantage of the 3-dimensional space that is the stuff of signing. Add to that his incredible use of an astounding range of range of facial expressions and gestures and you get stories inhabited by a man who appears as much cartoon as human.
Master Storyteller Ben Jarashow has the amazing ability to lure you into another world unwittingly. You end up riding on a roller coaster through vivid imageries filled with humor, parody and caricature. Ben is simply amazing.
