Ben combines clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments like the guitar, Casio keyboard and iPhone! Much of his material has been inspired by girlfriends, who are now incidentally ex-girlfriends. Since his breakout performance at the 2007 HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, Ben has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and most recently his own Half Hour Special on Comedy Central.

[SEPT 2014] “The show went great. Ben was easy to work with and his show was perfect for the audience. I think it was a great experience for all involved.”
– M. Kendrick Durham, Director of Campus Activities, Centre College

[APRIL 2012] “Ben was awesome, and the crowd loved his awkward sense of humor. We got to hang out with him informally before the show as well as after, which was a lot of fun.”–Erin L. White, Graduate Assistant, Campus Activities and Student Engagement (CASE), University of Maine

[FEB 2010] “I just wanted you to know that Ben was an absolute hit. He was great to be around and very congenial with everybody he met. His performance was excellent, he adapted to his audience by editing many of his jokes, which we really appreciated, and he just was himself, funny. He was a pleasure to host, and it was great to have him come perform. Thanks for all you did for us, and we wish you and Ben good luck.”
