The Comedy Zone returns to Lynchburg, Va – Burpie & Ben Jones

Feature Act: Ben Jones
Ben Jones is one of the fastest rising comics on the road today. After burning his cream sauce one too many times Ben dropped out of Culinary school to pursue his passion of entertaining others, feeling much more at home cooking up laughs than pork loin. This self-proclaimed slacker bet everything on a career in stand-up and fortunately the gamble paid off. Touring relentlessly across the country he brings a level of likeability that is matched by very few. He combines well written material and a dark sense of humor with a charisma that allows him to get away with almost anything. Using his own life experiences to make silly observations and odd scenarios, audiences laugh hysterically from the time this giant teddy bear hits the stage until he says goodnight. He’s built a first-rate name for himself in the comedy business by working some of the top clubs in the country (and a few at the bottom) sharing the stage with great comics such as Bob Saget, Rob Schneider, Maria Bamford, Jon Reep, Adam Devine, Dov Davidoff and SNL’s Jay Pharoah. Come see Ben and be a part of this memorable, fun and above all hilarious comedy experience. Ben Jones is not to be missed.
