Ben Palmer (PalmerTrolls) brings his comedy show to Caveat NYC. The show features his trolling of hateful trolls on corporate Facebook pages, posing as a city government to air sarcastic gripes about bureaucracy, making up fake cases to get on court TV, and pretending to be a journalist to get reactions from billionaire CEO’s and unethical multilevel marketing companies. He has an active following on TikTok, where he presents his trolling to 2.1 million followers. His live show is a presentation of his best material that he has honed over the years.
Ben first started writing humor online via a MySpace blog when he was 19.
At 21, he performed his first stand-up comedy set at Funny Stop Comedy Club in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. He continued to do stand-up comedy and became a regular at the best comedy clubs and independent shows in Atlanta, Georgia. It was in Atlanta where he fused his two passions of humor writing and stand-up comedy into a live show.
