Owen Benjamin returns to Crackers Comedy in Broad Ripple, and we couldn’t be more pleased!

TBS’ Sullivan & Son star Owen Benjamin was recently a correspondent on “The Jay Leno Show” and has appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” MTV’s “Punk’d” and Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.” He played Marvin the bartender in the feature “The House Bunny” and can be seen in “Born to Be a Star” and “All’s Faire in Love” opposite Christina Ricci.

He has done stand up at the Aspen Comedy Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, a nationwide 18 city tour with Vince Vaughn and Kevin James as well as clubs and colleges across America.

His short films and web series “Owen Benjamin Presents” and “Gaytown” have accumulated over 10 million hits. His unique blend of music and comedy makes him a must-see.

In his first one-hour stand-up special, High Five Til It Hurts, Owen Benjamin uses his infinite wisdom and virtuoso musical ability to explain everything from getting out of speeding tickets to avoiding arrest by the TSA. High five!

Roy Wood Jr Coming To Indy

If you’ve been following our blog, our Facebook page, or our Twitter feed, you’ve seen we’ve been featuring all of our friends from Sullivan & Son. Sure, we love that show and would cover them at some point in time, but this week is special, as we’re nearing their Father’s Day performance at the Crackers in Broad Ripple. And the last but not least feature of these four incredible comedians is Roy Wood Jr. Check him out!

Here’s a little bio we stole from Roy’s website.

Though he can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom ‘Sullivan & Son’ Roy’s journey did not start there. Named by Entertainment Weekly as one of 12 comics to watch in 2009, Roy has been featured on the new season of CBS’ THE LATE SHOW w/ David Letterman, HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM, TV One’s ‘The Funny Spot w/ Tony Rock’, BBC’s THE WORLD STANDS UP- LONDON, CBS’ LATE LATE SHOW w/ Craig Ferguson, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and Comedy Central’s BOB & TOM COMEDY TOUR. He’s also showcased at the prestigious MONTREAL COMEDY FESTIVAL and is a regular guest on the E! Network’s ‘CHELSEA LATELY’.

Hailing from Birmingham, AL, Roy’s creative writing and dedicated work ethic has since earned him the right to perform his comedy in front of millions of people coast to coast.

We’re excited to have Roy Wood Jr’s talent gracing our stage alongside fellow friends and coworkers Steve Byrne, Owen Benjamin, and Ahmed Ahmed. Get your tickets here!

See you Sunday. Cheers
