STORYTELLER is a two-act improv comedy show at The Improv Shop that attempts to portray life’s special, silly, and moving moments. It is a weekly show. It could be Show of The Week most weeks but that just wouldn’t be fair now would it?

Facts about the show: John Langen is the producer of STORYTELLER. Past guests include Laura Hall (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), Kevin McDonald (Kids In The Hall), Paul Brittain (SNL), Rich Talarico (Key and Peele, SNL), and many more. You can keep up with STORYTELLER-esque conversations on Twitter and Instagram. Facebook too.

A new guest Storyteller is featured each week.

Show of the Week, MAR 8 – 14: Ben Kronberg

Ben Kronberg
Wednesday, March 11, in the Elvis Room
8 p.m. | $8 | All Ages

After returning home to Brooklyn from the Very Much Comedy Tour with Nick Thune and Kate Berlant, Ben Kronberg is headed back to the Midwest for a single date in St. Louis. Kronberg has been a busy boy in the past year, clocking hundreds of miles on the road and even landing himself on Last Comic Standing. (If you’re a fan of the show, you may recognize him as the guy Roseanne Barr dismissed from the stage by stating, “Go fuck yourself.”)

A true multimedia adventurer, Kronberg has been known to sneak a catchy tune into his act. In between his one-liners and clever observations, he’ll make use of a guitar, keyboard and even his iPhone. His Half Hour special aired on Comedy Central in 2013, and his appearances on @Midnight have never been less than absurdly amusing.
