Welcome to Dirk Benedict Central – the only OFFICIAL website for news and information about Dirk Benedict.  Learn where and when he will next appear, any upcoming projects, etc.

We also talk about his many roles (including Starbuck and the Faceman), about Macrobiotics – basically all things Dirk Benedict, and more; we are a community of friends, people who initially came together to celebrate Dirk, his career, and his books, but who discovered that we have much more in common.

So if you’d like to join us on our members-only forum (Dirk’s Works), or just want to see what’s coming up for Dirk, take a look back at his previous work, or any combination thereof, we bid you a warm welcome and hope you enjoy, and come back often!

If you are an event promoter and would like to invite Dirk Benedict to appear at your event, please email me at “webmaster at dirkbenedictcentral dot com” (I spell it out like that to confuse the spambots…), and I will forward your request along.

John Pickard, Webmaster

“There is a divine moment in our lives when we become One. It is called pro-creation and it is reborn continually and forever in the future we call children.
They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents… we fail as God’s Children.”

A few items we need you to know:

**9/24/2021: After two successful and fun appearances, one in San Jose and the other in Wichita, we were looking forward to a steady return of conventions, and spending the first weekend in November watching Dirk at the FanBoy event in Columbus, OH. Unfortunately, according to their website, they are postponing that event until late Spring or early Summer, 2022. They say tickets for the November event will be honored on the rescheduled dates.

I’m still going to confirm this separately, but it looks legitimate to me. It is, of course, a great disappointment to us all, and I hope Dirk will be able to attend on the rescheduled dates; we’ll have to wait and see.

And as much as we want him to appear at the Wales Comic Con later in November, it’s looking less and less likely that his booking for this event survived the pandemic delay. We’ve had no word that I know of from the organizers or representatives, even to the fan requests I’ve been told about, confirming one way or the other. That silence is not good news; if he was booked they would be advertising, it since Dirk is a draw. I’m particularly disappointed to say this, but I’d be doing Dirk’s European fans a grave disservice if I didn’t tell them the truth: it’s become quite unlikely that Dirk will be in Wales in November.

I hope I’m wrong. I’ll be quite happy if I am.

That’s all for now. Keep watching, because you’ll get any new information when I do.

Thanks! -John

**Even the best of intentions will go awry…

Thanks to the hundreds – perhaps thousands – maybe millions – of spambots, unscrupulous advertisers, malware producers, sex-trade purveyors, and other evil, compassionless, troll-like dregs of humanity, our “Contact Us” function has inundated me with a growing daily number of unwanted spam messages, which is overwhelming the legitimate contacts we get through that function.

I have, therefore, turned it off until such time as I can find a system that is less vulnerable to such hijacking.

I have a stack of messages to go through, so please bear with me. In the meantime…

!! We presently do not have a mechanism to provide autographed photos upon request. Such things are in future plans, but are not realizable at the moment. Please don’t expect a response to such requests – yet.

!! I genuinely enjoy passing along to Dirk how much his fans love and appreciate him, but under the circumstances if you don’t mind holding those expressions for the moment, I will be grateful.

!! If you are organizing an event you would like Dirk to attend as a guest, please email me at webmaster @ this domain with your details, and I’ll get it into the right hands.

I do appreciate your understanding, and hope you enjoy looking through our site.
