Benn Farrell, Freelance


I am originally from Providence and Foster, RI, and ended up in Colorado Springs in 1991. In college, I studied film, literature, theatre and television and nearly all formats of writing and scripting. I started in journalism in 2001 with a daily newspaper for three years and later I took a job in Geneva, Switzerland for six months. When I returned stateside, I took a lead sports writer position with CCM. During my eight years with this outlet, I earned two Colorado Press Association awards (first place 2009, first place 2011) for my sports column at the time. After leaving this outfit, I went into sales and project management. However, I continued to freelance for a variety of clients. I have appeared in several regional theatrical productions including The Day They Shot John Lennon, Jeffrey, Da, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten and Inherit the Wind. I have written and produced–sometimes directed, sometimes appeared in–several video motion picture projects under the name DockRat Entertainment and Comatose Picturez since 1993 including In the Darkness, Between Friends and Wonderbred. In 1999, I partnered up with regional stand-up comedian Napoleon Hudson to create the Rocky Mountain-based sketch comedy television show Loosen Up, which aired on cable TV in Colorado Springs and Denver for two seasons before I left the show to enter the field of journalism. My first full length stageplay saw its world premier in 2000, in Colorado Springs, titled 24 Hours and Something Original. The production had a successful run and was welcomed with great to good reviews from regional critics. Since then, I have written several other stageplays including The War Over Tigger, Slow Kidz at Play, The Twilight of Nantucket, This Girl from Providence, Mourning News, Fat Farm, Ink’d, Skin In the Games, Hook and Ladder, Simon and the Great Gap and the musical Dadly Intentions, two of which I wrote during my six month stint in Switzerland.
