Wow, so here we are, right? What a crazy world we live in. If you're reading this, you probably like the stuff I do, and I thank you for that, as it's only because of people liking the stuff I do that I've got a career out of doing it. And I'd like to do even more of that stuff, and give you as much of what you like as I can. So I've got all my fingers crossed right now that you not only like my work, but that you like it enough to pay for it. Not much, mind you - if everyone who wanted to support me just kicked in a dollar a month, I'd be right chuffed.

Here's the deal: I work in a volatile industry, and I don't need to go into any exquisite detail about that I'm sure. It can be pretty hard to keep the head above water, and it can be especially hard to find the space to do all the work you want to - or that your fans want you to. So what I'm asking you for here is your support, to help me create more material for you. If you become a patron you'll be contributing towards a whole heap of great work for you to enjoy. Assuming you enjoy my work - I mean if you don't enjoy my work I don't really know why you're here, but hi anyway! The point is, if you donate to this Patreon, you're investing in something for YOU as well as me - we're all winners here.   

So basically, with the help of this Patreon, I hope to have the time and the headspace to create a whole mess of great new content for fans, off my own bat, and ease a little bit of the pressure on me as a freelancer. I'll still be working for a range of outlets, and you'll be able to find my work in a variety of places, but if this Patreon is successful you'll also be able to get a big mess of me unfiltered. This will include:

RECAPS - with your support I'll be recapping frequently, a range of shows: Masterchef. The Bachelor, The Voice, and anything else that takes my fancy or that the people seem to want. I know my recaps are pretty popular, but usually I don't do them unless a publication asks for them. With your help I'll be recapping several times every week, on my own page - uncut, uncensored recap, served steaming hot! If there's something you really want me to recap, let me know - this Patreon is all about pleasing the fans, and I'll be going the extra mile to do that.

OPINION - If I can get help from you through Patreon, I'll have more time to write more stuff on what I think, and what I think is funny. Every week there'll be a rant or a ramble or a romp through the satirical weeds or two, for you at home. It'll be funny, it'll be thoughtful, it'll be all kinds of fun and weird.

VIDEO - this Patreon is also intended to support me in doing more video work, with the various talented friends I want to work with. Supporting me will also mean supporting a new sketch comedy collective that I think you're going to love - if I get enough patronage we're taking this mother multimedia.

TEACHING - You'll be supporting my early attempts to set up a series of writing workshops where I'll be offering what experience and expertise i have to those who'd like to develop their writing skills. So you'll be in on the ground floor of that.

OK, so that's what I'll be able to create with your help, and that'll be for the world to enjoy. But what will YOU get out of it? Well, depending on how much support this thing gets, Patreon donors will be recipients of some VERY SPECIAL treats. Including:

The Pobjie Post - a weekly newsletter containing tidings of great joy, information about upcoming appearances, performances and published pieces, and general musings on life.

Ben's Storytime - exclusive videos JUST for Patreon patrons, wherein I will amaze and dazzle with my storytelling skillz.

Tempting Offers - My Patreon friends will from time to time get special offers such as cheap show tickets, chances to win prizes, and discounted rates for workshops et al.


So there you go - it's a new thing for me, and a bit of an adventure, but basically I'm asking that if you really like my work, whether it be the comedy, the recaps, the op-eds, or just the tweets, you consider (just consider, no hard feelings if you decide against it) chipping in a little bit to help me keep on keeping on in this crazy career I've chosen. If you can't, or you don't want to, it's cool - thank you for reading and for liking my stuff (I mean, the people who hate my stuff surely haven't read this far, right? Good God, get a hobby!). But if you can spare absolutely anything, my gratitude will be eternal and impassioned. And my promise to you is that in return for your assistance, I will work as hard as I possibly can to keep on producing work to make you proud and make the world a little bit more entertaining. 

Thanks for your time, I really love you all.

Ben
