Denver’s “Youngster Laureate” Ben Bryant began comedy at 18, like an idiot, a week into college. Now a wizened 22, after being groomed on the meanest streets of Denver, Ben is a semi-accomplished stand-up, podcast host, and sketch creator. A loosely flowing absurdism and skillful riffing has established Ben as somebody who consistently gets put up during the first half of open mics. Ben has performed at some of the best known Denver venues, including Comedy Works, Denver Improv, and many of the alternative comedy rooms. Due to a series of technicalities and bad bookings, Ben has been a part of the Crom Comedy Festival and Savage Henry Festival, and has worked with big dog comedians like Todd Glass, Ben Kronberg, and Josh Blue.
