Jimmy Kimmel Live: Ben Hoffman The Ben Show Review
The Ben Show premiered on February 28 2013 and comedian Ben Hoffman was probably pretty excited about getting his first big break in the entertainment business.
Hoffman was previously a writer and correspondent for Sports Show with Norm Macdonald, and he has written jokes for the MTV Movie Awards as well. Aside from being a comic writer, Hoffman has also appeared on New Girl and produced content for the current TV show infoMania.
Has anyone seen his new show, The Ben Show? I tried watching some of it when it premiered last week but I was not that into it. It seemed a little bit too absurd and awkward for me. Even the opening scene when he asked a woman to read a cue card for him to introduce the show seemed so strange and really not that funny. He seems to teeter on the edge of cluelessness with a sense that he really does know what he is talking about. It was the first episode though. I have hope for the future of the show. Let us know what you thought about the show in the comments section below.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: Ben Hoffman Justin Bieber Prank
Ben Hoffman made his name in comedy after he fooled thousands of people by tweeting from a fake Obama fundraiser thrown by George Clooney. But one of his funniest pranks ever, according to Hoffman, is when he tweeted he was on an airplane next to Justin Bieber and Bieber was taking questions from his fans.
Hoffman said he was bombarded with questions from people asking if Bieber likes girls with glasses or if he would go to Australia to play a show. After a while Hoffman said he felt bad about pranking the kids and started to answer the questions honestly. He said after that he knew he needed to stop pranking people on the internet and get out into the real world.
