I advise going early, just so that everything is figure out ahead of time, you do not want to have any confusion while the show is about to start!

Description

Benjamin Joseph Manaly Novak (born July 31, 1979 in Newton, Massachusetts), better known as B. J. Novak, is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and writer who plays the character of Ryan Howard on the NBC sitcom The Office. Novak is also a writer and supervising producer for The Office.

Novak’s television acting career began on MTV’s Punk’d. He was the lead accomplice on the show’s second season, and was most widely known for his pranks on Hilary Duff, Usher, and Mýa.

He also appears as an actor in the feature films Unaccompanied Minors, Reign Over Me, and Knocked Up.

Novak grew up in Newton, a city near Boston. He graduated from Newton South High School along with The Office co-star John Krasinski and enrolled in Harvard University, where he earned a degree in English and Spanish literature and wrote for the Harvard Lampoon.

After graduating from Harvard University in 2001, Novak moved to Los Angeles where he began working clubs as a comedian. His first live stand-up performance was on October 10, 2001 at the Hollywood Youth Hostel. He soon became a fixture at the popular L.A. comedy clubs like The Improv and was named one of Variety’s “Ten Comedians To Watch” in 2003. He was a writer on the short-lived WB sitcom “Raising Dad” which starred Bob Saget. He has since performed on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and on Late Night with Conan O’ Brien.
