Biography

Ben Kronberg's star is certainly on the rise. Ben's unique style blends clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments like the guitar, casio-keyboard, and loop-pedal. Much of his material has been inspired by girlfriends, who are now, incidentally, ex-girlfriends. Since his breakout performance in Aspen, Ben has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly. Ben has also appeared twice on ABC's hit game show, Wipeout - one time as a normal contestant, and most recently in the All-Star Episode. He lost both times, but would still go back for a third helping of pain if asked. Most recently filmed his own half hour special for Comedy Central and performed on John Oliver's NY Stand Up Special. He currently resides in New York City where he creates original content for the web and is starring in a stand-up comedy based pilot that is currently in production. He hopes writing about it doesn't jinx it.

CLIENT REVIEWS

"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 - University of Maine - April 2012

"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."
