Comedian Ben Miller in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park


This episode of Big Blend Radio’s 1st Friday “Toast To The Arts & Parks” Show with the National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) features scientist turned comedian Ben Miller who discusses his career and month-long NPAF residency in Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Listen here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on PodBean.


Ben Miller is an NYC based comedian who has been working for the past 6 years.  In that time, he has performed at all the top clubs in the city such as Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, Eastville, Carolines, and The Stand. In addition, he has performed in the New York Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, and Ithaca Comedy Festival. He is currently ranked as the top roast battler in NYC. His jokes are sharp and self-deprecating, and he was once called “one of NYC’s best pound-for-pound joke writers” which isn’t saying much considering how little he weighs.

In 2022, Ben Miller’s debut hour, Stand-Up Science, had a completely sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is now touring the US and UK. In 2023, he was an Artist in Residence at Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, the first ever stand-up comedian selected by the National Parks Arts Foundation.
