With Ben MacLean & Toby Arsalan

About this Event

It’s been a while! But CCB is open again, which means comedy is back! Comedians are crawling out of their little lockdown holes and carefully checking WHAT IS THE DEAL with all these post-quarantine shows!

This week, join Toby and his guest as they get back on stage and polish their jokes, old and new, dirty and clean, stories, bits and one-liners. It won’t all be comedy gold, but it will be all fun. Plus you get to enjoy and support local comedy again!

ABOUT THE COMICS

Ben MacLean is celebrating eleven years of terrorizing Berliners with his rural Canadian friendliness, and five 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.

Toby Arsalan is a German-Pakistani stand-up comedian based in Berlin. Toby has toured four continents, featured on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle and opened for Todd Barry, Judah Friedlander, Godfrey and Tom Rhodes. Most weeks when the world isn’t in the grips of a deadly epidemic, you can catch Toby hosting Monday Night Mics and Joke Time, two of Berlin’s most popular open mics. He recently started “Tragedy + Time”, a YouTube show that gets one minute longer each episode, check it out!
