Before he got behind the wheel of the “Cash Cab,” host Ben Bailey began his career as a Stand Up comedian. As a young man, Bailey left his home in a small town in New Jersey and headed to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. Just a few weeks later he found himself onstage at The Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip. He soon after returned to the East Coast and quickly became a crowd favorite at the clubs in New York City. He has since performed at all the major festivals including Montreal and Chicago (Just For Laughs), The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and at clubs and theaters around the world. Currently, Bailey tours for his latest Stand Up special “Ben Bailey Live & Uncensored.” He can also be heard on his popular podcast “Tall But True.”
Previously, Bailey has starred in two specials for Comedy Central and more recently appeared in "Road Rage and Accidental Ornithology," which is currently streaming on Netflix. He has gone on to host several other series including "Who's Still Standing" for NBC, "Best in The Business" and "After the Catch" for Discovery. He has appeared in numerous other shows including "30 Rock," "Parenthood," "Law and Order," and "One Life to Live" to name a few. Additionally, he’s been featured in several films including "Bad Parents," "Don't Shoot the Pharmacist," and "Bad Meat."
