Ben Spitzer has been
bringing laughter to thousands over the last twenty five years.
He has appeared on television, performed for major corporations, and special events, Cedar Point,

“5,000 people, 20 performers…Ben Spitzer is the main attraction, keeping up a constant banter and a lot of physical shticks.”
Ben’s first career was as
a Cartographer, making maps for schools and for AAA. Ben put shows together
with his three
sons Paul, Jamen and Kyle and they performed together as Spitzer & Sons. Soon he did not have time to make maps anymore.
His son’s grew up and moved Texa and California.
