Catch the must-see live performance of acclaimed stand-up comedian and host of the highly successful shows “Cash Cab” and “Cash Cab: After Dark” on the Discovery Channel, Ben Bailey, at Comic Strip Live. Ben will be joining an outstanding all-pro lineup for an evening filled with headliner acts!

Ben Bailey was singled out by publications such as Entertainment Weekly, who put him on their MUST LIST in 2006, People magazine who said “All Hail Cash Cab,” and the New York Post. As a stand-up he has also been profiled in publications such as the New York Times, Maxim, the Associated Press and other reputable publications as well.

About the Ticket Supplier: Comic Strip Live

"When you are a kid starting out as a stand-up comic, you don't dream about the cover of Time magazine. You dream about the 9 o'clock spot on Saturday night at the Comic Strip." --Jerry Seinfeld, to Liz Smith of the New York Post

Comic Strip Live, the longest running stand-up comedy club in New York City, celebrates its 30-year anniversary. In those 30 years Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and just about every other super star comedian started their careers here. We host special events, fundraisers, comedy classes, network TV and movie shoots, singles nights, after-prom shows and the best New Year's Eve event in NYC. With all of this to our name and 30 years of good old fashioned New York comedy, we can proudly claim over 1 billion laughs served.

Jerry Seinfeld, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Paul Reiser, George Wallace, Susie Essman, Judy Gold, Colin Quinn, Jim Breuer, Caroline Rhea, Damon Wayans, Dave Attell and Darrel Hammond are just a few of the many stars who began their illustrious careers at the Comic Strip.

"The most expertly booked club in the city. This showcase offers an eclectic mix of comedians every night of the week." --New York magazine
