Benjy Himmelfarb is a Washington, DC-based comedian who has performed at the Kennedy Center, comedy clubs across the country & many dive bars that smell like old cheese. The Washington Post has called him «sardonic, Semitic», which is a frighteningly concise way of summing him up.
Beyond standup, he can be found misusing his college degree to trash historical figures at the Time Machine Roast or making fun of insect mating habits and space nerds on his Youtube channel. Not one to brag, he often keeps quiet about the fact that he has had several tweets stolen & re-posted by big Instagram accounts without his permission. Benjy is truly a comedian destined for much success in the comedy business according to his friends who have no idea how difficult it is to be successful in the comedy business!
