Comedian Ben Bailey drove the smash hit series “Cash Cab” (still in syndication around the world) for over 550 episodes, earning multiple Daytime Emmy Awards. He now drives to the Woodstock Opera House stage for ONE NIGHT ONLY to show us why he is a crowd favorite at many of the comedy clubs and festivals.
BIO:Long before he got behind the wheel of The Cash Cab, Ben Bailey left his home in a small town in New Jersey and headed to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of a career in show business, he found himself onstage at The Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip. He got a laugh with the first thing he said and knew right away that he had found his calling.
He has since performed at all the major festivals including Montreal and Chicago (Just For Laughs), the (hallowed & former) Aspen Comedy Arts Festival, The Edinborough Fringe Festival, and at clubs and Theaters around the world. He has starred in 2 specials for Comedy Central, his most recent "Road Rage and Accidental Ornithology" has been a huge hit on Netflix for the last few years. By the summer of 2005 Bailey had appeared in several commercials, on FOX's "Mad TV", become a regular on "Tough Crowd w/Colin Quinn", recorded his first special for Comedy Central, and made stand up appearances on HBO, NBC, "Star Search", "Last Call w/Carson Daly" and "The Late Show". It seemed that Bailey's star was on the rise and then along came "Cash Cab." Ben drove the smash hit series for over 550 episodes and 6 Daytime Emmy Awards (new episodes airing in April on Bravo and it's still on in syndication around the world). Bailey has appeared on "The Tonight Show", "The Today Show", "The Oprah Winfrey Show", "Rachel Ray" and virtually every major morning show (TV&radio) in the country. He has gone on to host several other TV shows including "Who's Still Standing" for NBC, "Best in The Business" and "After the Catch" for Discovery.
