I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be recording my third live stand up comedy album (to be released by Comedy Dynamics) at The People’s Improv Theatre in New York City on Sunday September 24th.
FULL PRESS RELEASE
Comedian Ben Rosenfeld, a Russian born Jew based in New York City, covers such topics as his being raised by loveably insane Russian immigrant parents, American politics through an outsider’s perspective and his recent decision to get married – mostly to make his jokes more relatable.
Ben’s second album, “The Russian Optimist,” reached Amazon’s Top 5 best selling comedy albums. Now Ben returns to record his third live stand up comedy album, “The United States of Russia.” If you like your laughs sprinkled in with intelligence and thought provoking points, you’ll love Ben’s newest hour.
There will be two shows – 7PM and 9PM – both at The PIT Underground. Doors open 20 minutes before showtime.
Ben Rosenfeld creates smarter comedy for smarter people. Ben’s comedy blends his family’s experience as Russian Jewish immigrants in America with his philosophical beliefs, political observations and unique characters. Ben has appeared on FOX’s Laughs, CBS This Morning, National Geographic’s Brain Games, NPR Weekend Edition, SiriusXM Radio, Rooftop Comedy and been featured as TimeOut New York’s Joke of the Week. He has twice headlined at Caroline’s on Broadway, hosted at the Lincoln Center and performs nightly in New York City.
