Donations will be kindly called for, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

BEN KRONBERG

Ben Kronberg is a comedian based in Brooklyn, New York, who regularly tours across the country. In October, he will hit Houston, Austin, Ft. Worth and Texarkana as part of the "Tiny Notebook Texas Tour 2015", referencing the small jokebook he often carries during his sets. Ben's act is marked by a unique style that blends clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments, or just his smartphone. He has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly, and in 2013 had his own Comedy Central half hour special. He currently creates original content for the web, and this month made an appearance in the pages of the New York Times Fashion & Style section as one of the "Bindle Brothers" - part of a toungue-in-cheek campaign to market the noble stick-mounted hobo luggage device (which also happens to be the symbol of Nomadic Press).
