Ben Roy

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 Montreal 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 scripted comedy series Those Who Can’t, which now has all three seasons available for streaming on HBOMax.

He's also currently host of two popular podcasts, 97.9 The Rat Race on the All Things Comedy network and, along with Orvedahl and Cayton-Holland, The Grawlix Saves the World available on The Starburns Audio Network. In addition to stand-up comedy, acting, and podcasting, Roy is a prolific musician and the current lead singer of pop punk outfit SPELLS.
