Ben Bailey will be hosting and filming his live stand-up special at UP Comedy Club on Saturday, September 27th. He was the host of NBC’s Who’s Still Standing? as well as Discovery Channel's Cash Cab. Ben has won two Daytime Emmy Awards for Cash Cab. If you'd like to see more from Ben, check out his one-hour special Road Rage, which premiered on Comedy Central in May of 2011.
Bailey got his unlikely start as a stand-up comedian when he was mistaken for a comic in the green room of The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, where he was hired to answer the phones. The booker, seeing that the other comics in the room could not get enough of Bailey’s humor, signed him on the spot. He has since appeared regularly at comedy festivals over the years and has guest-starred on numerous television comedies and dramas.
In addition, Bailey also has performed on several of the late-night talk shows, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call with Carson Daly and Comedy Central's Premium Blend.
Bailey is a trained tri-athlete and has competed in the Half-Iron Man competition. He currently resides in New Jersey.

This multi-faceted talented Chicagoan uses keen observational skills theatrically performed to create more than just jokes. Tim Clue’s character-charged comedy tracks a man stumbling through the minefield of life, bringing the audience along with him. He has opened for Jerry Seinfeld and Steven Wright and created a one-man show entitled The Pain of Growing Up Normal. Tim also has a hit stage comedy titled Leaving Iowa that ran for a year in Chicago to rave reviews and is now published and has been performed in hundreds of theaters around the country.
Scott Dikkers has spent most of his career in comedy behind the scenes, first as a cartoonist for the daily comic strip Jim's Journal, then as one of the founding writers and editors of The Onion and the voice behind many Onion News Network videos and Onion Radio News reports.
Named by Time Magazine as one of the world's 50 "Digital Elite," and on Entertainment Weekly's "It" List of the hottest people in entertainment, Scott shows his bald-headed face only occasionally, appearing on the college lecture circuit, and on Conan O'Brien. He's also lent his voice to cartoons on MTV, Comedy Central and TV Funhouse on Saturday Night Live.
