Whoa, Nelly!

Hi! This dude to your left is I.  I’m Ben Hauck.  I’m an actor, author, and improv comedian based outta NYC.

I do a lot.  Among the things I’ve done is write the book Long-Form Improv: The Complete Guide to Creating Characters, Sustaining Scenes, and Performing Extraordinary Harolds, available in fine bookstores and perhaps the occasional corrupt one.  From time to time you’ll see me on TV or in a film, in a viral video or maybe a bacterial one, or even on the stage, sometimes billed as The Reverend Raymond Nader, a character I do who improvises comic Pentecostal-style sermons based on audience suggestion.

I do tons more, too, such as run marathons and run the website Stand-In Central and publish essays and blog and volunteer in the field of general semantics and write breathlessly long sentences.  Apparently I have serious energy to burn.  So we should collaborate.  Pitch me.

What’s this book of which you speak, Ben?

Here’s what eight years of my life went into creating. It’s pretty damn good.  Get yourself a copy and I’ll sign it.  Unless you get an eBook version, in which case I’ll sign a napkin you give me or something.

Wanna get in touch with me?

Sometimes you’re so moved by a person, you just want to contact him to work with him or something.  (What’s the purpose of “other people” again?)

For matters relating to my acting career, please contact my manager.  Otherwise, for personal matters, feel free to get in touch with me by phone, email, or Twitter.  Probably the fastest way to reach me is via email.
