|Join the journey with Ben Hoffman in COMEDY CENTRAL’s newest show “The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman” as he moves through life attempting to figure it all out. Utilizing vignettes interwoven with sketches, Ben interviews and hangs out with various people and characters to explore the randomness that is his life.
“The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman” is a sketch show/man-on-the-street hybrid starring comedian Ben Hoffman. Between sketches, we follow Ben on a journey, such as forming a band, going on a blind date, buying a firearm or returning to his home town in Kentucky. Ben seeks advice and guidance from strangers as well as people he knows including his dad, ex-girlfriends and therapist, who also help him introduce the sketches.
In the premiere episode, Ben chats with Todd Bridges, who relates past stories using animation to discuss his crack use; old ladies audition for a role as “Gangsta Granny;” Ben chats with his therapist about his desire to buy a firearm; as the ‘retweeter,’ Ben shows the absurdity of celebrity tweets; and a rapper brings musical flair to the obits in “YoBitchuaries.”
