Ben San Del

Called “sharp, with perfect pacing” by the St. Paul Pioneer Press and an “always on-target stalwart” by the Minneapolis City Pages, Ben San Del is a newspaper writer turned comedian whose stage career kicked off after winning Acme Comedy Co.’s Funniest Person in the Twin Cities Contest in 2006. His 2009 stand-up show “Animal Cracker Genocide” was voted Audience Pick to receive an encore performance at the Minnesota Fringe Festival, as were his following two plays “A Nice Guy’s Guide to Awkward Sex” and “Minnesota Middle Finger.” In 2012, Ben was invited to perform at the Laughing Skull comedy festival in Atlanta, and took part in last year’s 10,000 Laughs festival in Minneapolis.
