DC Benny: In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. His nickname "D.C." was given to him by Harlem's legendary host; "Uncle" Jimmy Mack, who sadly passed away in the 2014 Tracy Morgan car accident. Benny's unusual style of telling autobiographical stories, inhabited by original characters has been sharpened for almost thirty years as a performer. His personal essays, stories, and articles have been featured in New York Magazine, The New York Observer, Narratively, and Heeb Magazine. Benny's diverse fan base know him from a wide range of appearances; his "White Boy Rips The Apollo" clip with almost ten million views, his Comedy Central Presents, one the of the network's highest-rated half-hour specials, as a top eight finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing, his role as Caesar in John Singleton's feature film "Illegal Tender", as "Chaz" on the soap opera "As The World Turns", and national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy's, AIG, as well as the Budweiser "How You Doin'?" superbowl spots campaign. His weekly comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, became an underground staple, where performers such as Dave Chappelle, Robert Kelley, Jim Gaffigan, Jim Norton, Jay Oakerson, Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, and SNL's Dean Edwards would tell their true, funny, stories, to a packed house at The Zinc, a downtown New York jazz bar. Currently, Benny co-hosts the story-telling podcast "Tall But True" with his friend, Cash Cab's Ben Bailey, where guests like Ray Romano, Dom Irrera, Colin Quinn, Adam Ferrara, Artie Lange, and Bill Burr share funny stories and talk smack. Benny lives in Brooklyn where he fiddles around with old Land Rovers when he is supposed to be helping his wife run her natural skincare business. He has a dog named Grits and two cats who prefer that he not share their personal information in this bio.
