Ben Kissel - Podcaster, Comedian, Writer, Politician A Renaissance Man

Ben Kissel

Podcaster/comedian/writer/politician a Renaissance Man. His podcast « Last Podcast on the Left », for which he is a co-creator and co-host, won a Webby and was listed among Itunes Top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts of 2017 with more than a million readers. He is also the host of this political humor podcast « Abe Lincoln’s Top Hat ».

In 2017 Ben ran for Brooklyn Borough President with the Reform Party, which he didn’t win, but there is always tomorrow! He’s a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN and a nationwide radio host with labored on Sirius Radio and Fox News Radio. In 2015 as a political activist he was able to overturn an anti-cross grooming legislation in New Jersey.

The previous Podcast about the Left is a weekly podcast featuring comedian and podcast sponsor Ben Kissel, podcast producer and writer Marcus Parks, and comic and actor Henry Zebrowski (who joined in the next episode), all of whom are longtime friends.

Released each Friday, the episodes are normally one hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the planet both real and imagined. Previous episodes have researched the subjects of serial killers, conspiracy theories, UFO sightings, ghosts, and readings of fan-submitted creepypastas. Kissel, Parks, and Zebrowski tour with live performances of this podcast and produce The Last Stream about the Left, a live-streaming spinoff show on the Adult Swim site.

In the post-Trump era, using a reality TV star holding our country’s highest office, tales like Kissel’s are becoming more common — droves of young people are getting involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that candidates don’t need to be capable to win. On the other, it was a rude awakening that the dissatisfied need to take politics.

Input Ben Kissel. In his « day job, » Kissel — along with co-hosts Marcus Parks and Henry Zebrowski — hosts a true-crime-meets-paranormal humor podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is ranked second on iTunes’ comedy chart and draws fans throughout the globe. But like most dismayed young voters, Kissel chose 2016 as a wake-up telephone to run for office.

As someone who’s been listed in podcasts and around the radio for eight years, Kissel acknowledges that a lot of people wait to run for office for fear of criticism or having their previous exposed. His advice? Own it. After all, he says, everybody has their own past, and so long as you « treat the voters with humanity and respect, » voters can « accept all the defects which go with that person, as long as that individual is willing to accept them. »

Like the offenders he covers on Last Podcast, Kissel says with a laugh, « a lot of politicians are sociopaths with no ideology. Obviously not all of them, but we want the people that have scruples, morals, and are concerned about their own failings. »

For someone who faces the worst of humankind with dark humor in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel really believes in the best of people. He believes in good intentions, sincerity, and salvation. These traits may seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado since they do at a politician, but they’re the very same traits that provide a youthful, non-politician the exceptional ability to serve the public. Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there’s no losing. « The very fact that we are on the ballot is incredible, and that we are able to inspire individuals to run or engage in the political process — that is a win. That is a massive win, » he states.

Kissel needs other people to take heart in this message, also: « Losing is a big fear for people, but who cares! Just get out there, and if you continue getting out, continue doing this in virtually any area, you are gonna win. »
