With appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, Late Night with Seth Meyers and Last Comic Standing, it is no understatement to say that Ben Kronberg is the biggest international comedy star to come to Japan this year. He has also appeared on the MTV series "I Just Want My Pants Back," the YouTube Web series "I Hate Being Single," and in 2013 starred in his own half-hour special on Comedy Central.
Coming for just one night only to Fukuoka for a special extended headline set in an extremely intimate venue, opportunities like this don't come along often.

“Kronberg is a comedian who can deftly make himself the joke, milking awkward pauses for laughs, delivering one-liners that resonate with some and confound others.”
- The Washington Post
