Ben MacLean (CAN)
Ben MacLean is celebrating thirteen years of terrorizing Berliners with his rural Canadian friendliness, and eight years of hosting and performing standup. The world’s only diplomat turned comedian, his one-of-a-kind LinkedIn profile also includes stints as a gay fetish model and flight attendant. Add to this the reality TV-like experience of growing up the youngest of seven, and he’s been blessed with lots of material. In addition to doing shows in L.A., Cape Town and Tokyo, he was a semifinalist in the U.K.’s prestigious “So You Think You’re Funny?” competition. You might also know him from appearances in Siegessäule, Männer and taz or from Go West Comedy, his monthly showcase in Schöneberg. If you recognize Ben from some of his “non-comedy” content online, that’s something he’ll neither confirm nor deny.
