Ben San Del


A former news reporter and columnist, Ben San Del's stage career kicked off after winning Acme Comedy Co.'s Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest, 2006. With a style described as “sharp, with perfect pacing” by the St. Paul Pioneer Press, he's gained a reputation as an "always on-target stalwart" (City Pages) and recently appeared at the national Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta. In 2009, his stand-up hour “Animal Cracker Genocide” was held over for a people’s choice encore performance at the Minnesota Fringe Festival. The following year, Ben's play, "A Nice Guy's Guide to Awkward Sex,” became a top-five best-selling show out of 170 Fringe productions, a feat matched in 2011 with his second play, "Minnesota Middle Finger." Ben returns to the Fringe this year with a new hour of stand-up comedy called “An Agony of Fools.”
