VARI­ETY’S TOP 10 COMICS TO WATCH

If you aren’t famil­iar with Ben Roy, he’s been tak­ing com­e­dy audi­ences by storm since 2004, bring­ing an unpar­al­leled ener­gy and unique voice to the stage. Often com­pared to Lewis Black or Bill Hicks due to his pas­sion­ate, rant­i­ng approach, Roy has a style that is defin­i­tive­ly his own. 

Roy cut his comedic teeth in Den­ver at the world famous Com­e­dy Works. Since then, he has been select­ed to per­form at the Mon­tréal Just for Laughs Com­e­dy Fes­ti­val, Just For Laughs Toron­to, Just For Laughs Chica­go, The New York Com­e­dy Fes­ti­val, Austin’s South by South­west fes­ti­val, and many more. Roy has been fea­tured on HBO’s Fun­ny as Hell series; as well as on the Com­e­dy Cen­tral shows Adam DeVine’s House Par­ty, Cor­po­rate, @midnight, and This Is Not Hap­pen­ing. Ben has also released four stand-up com­e­dy albums and was list­ed as one of Vari­ety’s Top 10 Comics to Watch.

Along with fel­low Den­ver Come­di­ans Adam Cay­ton-Hol­land and Andrew Orvedahl (who col­lec­tive­ly per­form as The Grawlix), Ben cre­at­ed, wrote, and starred in TruTV’s orig­i­nal com­e­dy series Those Who Can’t, which now has all three sea­sons avail­able for stream­ing on HBO­Max. He’s also cur­rent­ly host of two pod­casts, 97.9 The Rat Race on the All Things Com­e­dy net­work, and The Grawlix Saves the World avail­able on The Star­burns Audio Net­work. In addi­tion to stand-up com­e­dy, act­ing, and writ­ing, Roy is a pro­lif­ic musi­cian and the cur­rent lead singer of pop punk out­fit SPELLS.
