Comedy Shows

Ben Rice has been producing shows throughout the Sacramento region since 2016. Not only does he bring you the best of the local area, but also from across the West Coast and even from around the country (on occasion).

Called the best show producer in Sacramento by Johnny Taylor (Stand-Up Records), Ben Rice has also been shouted out for his communication, professionalism, and quick turn-around by comedy legend Kyle Kinane on his podcast, The Boogie Monster.
