Nomadic Performer Interview Series: Ben Kronberg

Nomadic Performer Interview Series: Ben Kronberg

Ben Kronberg is a Brooklyn-based comedian and musician originally from Colorado. In 2013, he had his own Comedy Central Half Hour special, and he has appeared on late-night network shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly while also regularly touring across the country. His habit of referencing a small joke book during sets inspired filmmaker Scott Moran to interview Kronberg for the web series Modern Comedian, for which Kronberg also composed the music using his iPhone and guitar. Kronberg later used his iPhone to create a music album titled Just Songs, which he recently played live at American Beauty Bar NYC as part of a weekly open-mic showcase organized by friend and musician Tim Pourbaix.
