Ben Cardilli is a stand-up comedian, musician &producer from Montreal, Quebec. He spent his teens and 20’s studying music and touring Canada in “emo bands” (don’t ask). At 30 years old, after making the quarter finals of “La Voix 6,” Ben decided to take a step back from music and address his growing fascination with stand-up.
Within a year, his goofy and honest anecdotes had landed him in the finals of Montreal’s largest English comedy competition, The MTL Grand. A year later, he was oversharing with the ‘Best of The Montreal Comedy Series’ and hitting the ol’ country road again with ‘Tinder Tales’.
Ben spent the better part of the first lockdown writing &releasing his debut musical comedy album of quarantine classics, “The Great Indoors” (now available on all streaming platforms).
Since the return of live shows, he has hit the ground running and can be found hosting & producing some of the hottest stand-up shows in Montreal! He was most recently voted Montreal’s 4th best comedian in the annual Cult MTL readers poll and has since been opening up for the mighty Sugar Sammy at a handful of his secret shows. Up & up & up, baby!
