Ben started stand up comedy in 2008 and quickly established himself as one of the hardest working comedians in the country. In his first year he made it to the final of The Hilarity Bites new act competition and won 2 Fun House Comedy Gong Shows.

His likeable stage presence and sharp material has made him in demand as an act and compere up and down the country and saw him reach the Final of the Midlands Comedian of the Year Award in 2011. Open and honest in his material he has progressed onto paid 15s and 20s and is a solid compere for any club.

2015 saw Ben reach the Final of the English Comedian of the Year Competition held in The Udderbelly at The South Bank in London.

Ben has appeared at the Birmingham, Nottingham, Edinburgh and Leicester Comedy Festivals and debuted his first hour show, 'Solo Traveller' in 2012 at the Leicester Comedy Festival to a sell out audience and great reviews. In 2013 Ben was back at Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival with another sell out show, 'All Growed Up' and returned in 2014 with a new hour long show, 'the evolution of me (whoever that is) and 2015 with a new hour 'its not all about you' which both sold out.
