"Ben Herman has been headlining nightclubs across the Midwest as an MC, Feature as well as Headliner for the past decade.  His hybrid mix of small-town charm and big-city wit endear him to audiences of any demographic!

A constant kid-at-heart whose personality got him in constant trouble in small town Sigourney, Iowa growing up. Ben got his comedy start by immediately standing out with his stand-up at Penguin's Comedy Club in Cedar Rapids in 2000. during his higher learning at kirkwood community college.  A then-teenage Herman quickly impressed the old guard at the comedy club and was an instant favorite of the club's loyal patrons.

After a few years of honing his comedy chops, Ben moved to Des Moines to not only elevate his exposure as a stand-up comic, but to also pursue a career in radio.  Constantly being behind a microphone day-and-night helped Ben develop razor-sharp crowd skills that have now become a staple of Ben's act.  Anyone lucky enough to be in the audience for one of Ben's shows is sure to feel like he's a long-time friend, telling them stories he's never told anyone before.  

It's this friendly appeal, armed with edgy-but-silly observations and life stories, that has made Ben a staple through the Heartland.  He has headlined at Joker's Comedy Club in Cedar Falls, IA. also has been a guest at the Des Moines Funny Bone on multiple occasions.

Ben has also received praise for his performances throughout rooms in Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado and Illinois.  

Ben was a special guest at the legendary Lakeshore Theater in Chicago and has been featured as a Local Boy Done Good at his old stomping grounds, Penguin's Comedy Club in Cedar Rapids, IA. also has turned into a leading act among Des Moines, Iowa's thriving comedy scene. Welcoming Ben into a nightclub is like having an old friend over to liven' up your party with anecdotes... an old friend that your guests will want back again and again!"
