Comedians! Catch A Rising Star has
formed a partnership with the
National Association of Comedians.
It is a unique organization that provides support
for working comedians. It's often difficult for a
touring comedian to find adequate Health Insurance
and other necessary services most
Human Resources Departments provide.
The NAC has leveraged the power of numbers
so that individual comedians will have access
 to group discounts including health insurance. 
As a member, you are part of a recognized
national professional association. Using the
National Association of Comedians, LLC logo on
your business cards, marketing materials and
web site will give you credibility and give your
career a boost.   You will gain knowledge through
educational seminars and communication
with other NAC members with our members only
message system.  
Comedian Member Dues:  $19.99 per year.

Growing up small around a lot of bigger, tougher guys in Trenton, NJ (a town he describes as “Good Times” meets “The Sopranos”) Brian developed a sharp wit to deal with the fact that his dancing skills didn’t match their fighting skills. After a six-month career managing a deli in the Kingsbury Projects, Brian realized education might be important. While working on his Bachelors and Masters degrees, he began appearing in musicals (not helpful in a fight), independent films and commercials, as well as the Comedy Pilot “Crash Life” and the Web Series “Celebrities”.

Brian’s comedic talent is a blend of dark, intelligent, and dry humor. His quick wit combined with physical comedy on stage has delighted audiences of every age. He has performed all over New York City and around the country, working with the likes of Paul Reiser, Jim Breuer, Ben Bailey, Patrice O'Neal, Robert Kelly, Sebastian Maniscalco and many others. Most recently Brian was seen on Gotham Comedy Live, on AXS TV. He lives in New York City.

Ben Asher, a writer and comedian from New York, is known for his “brave,” confrontational material, and his skills as a “brilliant joke writer” among fellow comedians. He performs regularly at comedy venues and colleges throughout the metropolitan area, East Coast, and Europe. Audiences are always quick to share their appreciation of Ben’s style of sardonic irreverence and absurd, satiric wit in which he doesn’t just dissect language and taboos - he explodes them. “What Ben Asher says makes me laugh, even though I feel like I shouldn’t,” a cute Jewish girl, from Brooklyn, with an LCSW, said, after listening to him.

In 2014, Ben traveled to Iceland to headline in the Iceland Comedy Festival. He was also the finalist in the 2014 Funniest Jewish Comedian Competition and, soon after, was asked by his fellow comics to become a member of the Friars Club. In 2013 Ben was in the New York Comedy Festival – all this not long after having returned to performing full-time, in 2011, after a multi-year, health-imposed hiatus that required several surgeries to remove arthrofibrotic tumors from his knee.

Ben produces and hosts a monthly comedy show in Park Slope and New York's East Village, DoublePlusGood Comedy, (formerly Nasal Vice! Stand-Up,) where, since 2013, rising comics perform long, 20+ minutes sets, the second Wednesday of every month. He also co-produces/hosts The Homebrewed Mic, giving New Yorkers a sample of homebrewed beers and comedy.

Ben studied Theater and Playwriting, and acted at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and trained in acting in HB Studios. He also trained in acting, writing and directing with the Labyrinth Theater Company. Ben completed the Improv Comedy training program at the Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) and has taught comedy and improv to public school students in New York City.
