The Other Place is Greener Presents Ben Roy with performances by Sam Tallent and Jay Gillespie hosted by Nathan Lund.
Ben Roy created and starred in TruTv’s scripted comedy series THOSE WHO CAN’T along with fellow Grawlix comedy troupe members, Adam Cayton-Holland and Andrew Orvedahl. Set in Denver, Those Who Can’t follows three dysfunctional high school teachers, who are as screwed-up as the kids they teach. In addition, Ben is also a prolific stand-up comedian and appeared on Ari Shaffir’s Comedy Central show, THIS IS NOT HAPPENING. He has also been on ADAM DEVINE’S HOUSE PARTY and HBO’s FUNNY AS HELL. Ben has released 3 comedy albums including, I GOT DEMONS, which was featured in LAUGHSPIN as one of the Top Comedy Albums of the year.
Ben will be joined by Sam Tallent. Known for whip-quick wit and rollicking improvisations, Sam Tallent is one of the sharpest, most original rising talents in comedy today. Fresh off his New Faces debut at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, Sam has been called “the absurd voice of a surreal generation” by the Denver Post, and, when not maintaining a “Black Flag esque tour schedule” (Savage Henry Magazine), Sam has worked alongside many of the biggest names in comedy, including Russel Peters, Ron White, Dave Chappelle, Doug Stanhope, Dana Carvey and Hannibal Buress. He recently won his battle on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, and was seen on VICELAND’s Flophouse as well as the Chris Gethard Show. His writing has been published on VICE.com. His debut novel, Running the Light, will be available this fall wherever fine books are sold. He lives in Denver with his wife and dog.
With a performance by Cougar Nights host, Jay Gillespie!
Show hosted by new Trinidadian, Nathan Lund!
