As the son of a jazz musician and jazz singer, Ben grew up dancing with the customers outside the dance clubs where his parents performed. Comedy has always played a major role in Ben’s dance style, and he cites Jackie Gleason, Chris Farley, and John Belushi as his influences. With his amazing combination of humor and dance, Ben has made numerous appearances at shows, clubs, and sporting events across the nation and is always popular with the crowd. Fans may have seen him dancing in center court with the team mascot for a professional basketball team. As an upcoming stand-up comedian, he can also be seen at comedy clubs on open-mike night.
Some who have come into my office have wondered why I have a large man dancing on the bottom left corner of my screen. The answer: it cracks me up. I’m really enjoying some of the features of the Plus! Digital Edition, including Dancing Ben.
