Who Is Ben Hoffman? Ben Hoffman Gets His Own Show On COMEDY CENTRAL® "The Ben Show With Ben Hoffman" Premieres On Thursday, February 28 At 10:00 P.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Join the journey with Ben Hoffman in COMEDY CENTRAL's newest show " The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman" as he moves through life attempting to figure it all out.  Utilizing vignettes interwoven with sketches, Ben interviews and hangs out with various people and characters to explore the randomness that is his life.  Eight episodes begin on Thursday, February 28 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the premiere of "Nathan For You."

"The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman" is a sketch show/man-on-the-street hybrid starring comedian Ben Hoffman.  Between sketches, we follow Ben on a journey, such as forming a band, going on a blind date, buying a firearm or returning to his hometown in Kentucky.  Ben seeks advice and guidance from strangers as well as people he knows, including his dad, ex-girlfriends and therapist, who also help him introduce the sketches. 

In the premiere episode, Ben chats with Todd Bridges, who relates past stories using animation to discuss his crack use; old ladies audition for a role as "Gangsta Granny;" Ben chats with his therapist about his desire to buy a firearm; as the 'retweeter,' Ben shows the absurdity of celebrity tweets; and a rapper brings musical flair to the obits in "YoBitchuaries."

Ben was a Writer/Correspondent for COMEDY CENTRAL's "Sports Show with Norm Macdonald" and wrote for the "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Roseanne."  In addition, he has appeared on "Arrested Development," "New Girl" and "Drunk History."  Ben memorably pranked the Twittersphere during President Obama's Hollywood fund-raising event with George Clooney, tweeting as if he was present at the event.

Viewers can watch preview clips and get an extended look at the premiere episode on the show's website at, and throughout season one, the website will feature exclusive video including original segments, outtakes and extended highlight clips.  Beginning today, fans can also follow Ben on Twitter @thebenshow as well as on Tumblr at  In addition, the "The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman" Facebook page will be updated multiple times each week with the latest content from the show.

Episodes from "The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman" will be available in SD and HD the day after air on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, Sony PlayStation Store, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub.
