Arthur Avenue Comedy – Fordham Stand-Up Wednesday Nights in The Bronx

Arthur Avenue Comedy’s Fordham Stand-Up Wednesday show brings you top comics performing at Clinton Hall in the Bronx every week.

About this Event

Arthur Avenue Comedy’s Fordham Stand-Up Wednesday is where you go in the Bronx to hear top comics from TV and NYC’s major clubs performing long sets on an intimate stage. Past performers include comedians from HBO, Netlfix, Colbert, SNL, the Daily Show, Letterman, the Tonight Show, Comedy Central, and more. Every week, Ben Asher’s presents comedy that reaches up into your brain with the force of a fist through the nose.

Every Wednesday you can hear some of the most talented comics perform long sets, that other shows don’t give them the time to perform. Arthur Avenue Comedy is your chance to get to really watch comedians flex their muscles and hit their stride on stage, at Clinton Hall, where you can eat a drink the most delicious craft food and beers on tap in the city.

Line-ups will be posted the week of the show here or you can follow @the_ben_asher on Instagram

Produced/Hosted by Ben Asher (New York Comedy Festival; StandUp NBC; Iceland Comedy Festival headliner; Caroline’s; Catch A Rising Star; DoublePlusGood Comedy) –

From TimeOut NY: For comedy connoisseurs tired of seeing their favorite comics squeeze their sets into five minutes, Ben Asher’s showcase provides full-length sets and a chill atmosphere for diverse acts to thrive in.

Press: In addition to being a TimeOut New York ‘Critics Pick’, TimeOut NY has frequently called Ben’s show the “best cheap things to do,” of the week and one of the “most amazing things to do” of the month, and the New York Times has listed it show as an editor’s choice multiple times.

Produced/Hosted by Ben Asher (New York Comedy Festival; StandUp NBC; Iceland Comedy Festival headliner; Caroline’s; Catch A Rising Star; DoublePlusGood Comedy) –

Ben Asher, a writer and comedian from New York, is known for his “brave,” confrontational material, and his skills as a “brilliant joke writer” among fellow comedians. He performs regularly at comedy venues and colleges throughout the metropolitan area, East Coast, and Europe. Audiences are always quick to share their appreciation of Ben’s style of sardonic irreverence and absurd, satiric wit in which he doesn’t just dissect language and taboos – he explodes them. “What Ben Asher says makes me laugh, even though I feel like I shouldn’t.”

In 2022 Ben recorded a half-hour special “An Intimate Evening of Provocative and Deranged Humor” at The Nest rock club, in Brooklyn, NY. Also, in 2022, Ben’s show Arthur Avenue Comedy was featured in the NY Comedy Festival as one of only two comedy shows in Bronx. In 2014, Ben traveled to Iceland to headline in the Iceland Comedy Festival. He was also the finalist in the 2014 Funniest Jewish Comedian Competition. In 2013 Ben was in the New York Comedy Festival. Ben has been a guest on Sherrod Small’s ‘Races Wars’ podcast.

Ben currently produces and hosts the weekly Arthur Avenue Comedy show in NYC’s Bronx borough, the monthly Comedy From Scratch at The Idea Kitchen, and Slide-In at Slate-Nightclub in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, and has produced and hosts a monthly comedy show in Park Slope, Brooklyn and New York’s East Village, DoublePlusGood Comedy, (formerly Nasal Vice! Stand-Up,) where, since 2013, rising comics perform long, 20+ minutes sets, every month. He also co-produces/hosts The Homebrewed Mic, giving New Yorkers a sample of homebrewed beers and comedy.
