AL DEL BENE
LOS ANGELES COMEDY AWARDS™ Comedian of the Year, Al Del Bene broke into comedy in Boston at the age of 18 as a stand up comedian and head of the sketch-improv group Al & the Monkeys. Upon moving to NYC, Al quickly became a staple of the underground comedy scene there, as well as writing, directing & starring in his musical debut at The NYC Fringe Festival.
Al’s theatre experience goes all the way from Beyond Therapy to playing Puck & Demetrius in A Mid Summer Night’s Dream. (Shakespeare, bitches) After bleeding NY dry of every last joke about how miserable living there made him, Al moved to sunny L.A. Where he took a huge apartment, bought a car and impregnated his wife in a very masculine way... Twice!
In Los Angeles Al became a regular at The World Famous Laugh Factory on The Sunset Strip, as well as running his own weekly show, Saturday Night Laughs, inside Hollywood's legendary Grauman's Chinese Theater.
His TV appearences include Tourgasm, Comics Unleashed, NESN Comedy All Stars, Jon Lovitz Presents and he was cut out of the film My Best Friends Girl. Al felt privileged to host 18 episodes of his own talk show and Ustream.TV's first original program, Show Interrupted.
He has travelled to Kuwait and Iraq, with the U.S.O. to perform for the troops. Al has performed comedy & music to over 100 sold out stadiums & arenas as a featured act on Dane Cook’s Isolated Incident & Dane Cook Live! Tours.
In 2012 Al was awarded Comedian of the Year by The L.A. Comedy Awards.
In March of 2014 Al Del Bene and his family moved to Sydney, Australia, where he is quickly making his comedy known and working on his tan. No worries, Crikey, G'day!
