Ben Bridgeman

Comedian Profile

In 2015 Ben saw his friend perform at The Edinburgh fringe, and perhaps arrogantly thought “I could do that!”. Turns out he can’t remotely do what they were doing, given they’ve been performing for 10 years, and just made it LOOK easy.
His first proper gig was in 2016, and in the two years since, he’s started getting work in clubs and with promoters around country, doing middle spots, opening and compering. This year he got to open for that friend (Bobby Mair) at The Stand in Glasgow, finding out in the process that while he still can’t do what that dark Canadian genius does, he’s certainly found a style of his own.
