Ben Richards is an English Comedian who is now living in Stockholm.
Winner of the 1st ever Haha Stockholm, Sweden’s biggest stand up comedy competition.
Since moving to Sweden he is a regular headliner and MC around stockholm and the rest of the country. He has also performed in England, Estonia and Finland. He started doing Stand-up in 2007 when he was living in New Zealand. he figured that he couldn’t get further away from England, so if it went badly then no one would ever know. Luckily it went well and he started performing in New Zealand.
Then he moved to Sydney, Australia where I started regularly performing, often at the Sydney Comedy Store. While in Australia he entered Raw Comedy, a nation-wide comedy competition for new comics. He reached the State finals before being told that he couldn’t win due to not being Australian. He describes his comedy style as observational story teller and he loves to play with the room and engage the audience. While living in London he also tried his hand at radio and he presented shows on various community and hospital radio stations. In 2010 he was “highly commended” in the best new comer category at the National Hospital Radio Awards.
