Ben Kissel

Podcaster/comedian/writer/politician a Renaissance Man. His podcast « Last week about the Left », for which he’s a co-creator and co-host, won a Webby and was listed among Itunes Top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts of 2017 with over a million subscribers. 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 did not win, but there’s always tomorrow! He is a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN and a nationwide radio host having worked on Sirius Radio and Fox News Radio. In 2015 as a political activist he was able to overturn an anti-cross dressing law in New Jersey.

The Last Podcast on the Left is a weekly podcast featuring comedian and podcast host Ben Kissel, podcast producer and researcher Marcus Parks, and comic and actor Henry Zebrowski (who joined in the third episode), most of whom are longtime friends.

Released every Friday, the episodes are generally 1 hour in length, together with the hosts investigating the horrors of the world both real and imagined. Previous episodes have researched the topics 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 on the Left, a live-streaming spinoff show about the Adult Swim site.

From the post-Trump age, using a reality TV celebrity holding our country’s highest office, tales like Kissel’s are becoming more prevalent — droves of young people are getting involved and seeking public office. On the 1 hand, the 2016 election showed us that candidates don’t have to be capable to win. On the flip side, it was a rude awakening the dissatisfied need to take politics into their own hands.

Enter 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 rated second on iTunes’ humor chart and draws fans across the world. But like most dismayed young Republicans, Kissel took 2016 as a wake-up call to run for office.

As somebody who’s been recorded in podcasts and on the radio for eight years, Kissel acknowledges that a lot of individuals hesitate to run for office for fear of criticism or using their previous exposed. His advice? Own it. In the end, he states, everyone has their own past, and as long as you « treat the Republicans with respect and humanity, » voters may « accept each of the flaws that go with that person, provided that this person is ready to accept them. »

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

For somebody who confronts the worst of humankind with dark comedy in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel really feels in the best of people. He believes in sincerity salvation, and good goals. These traits may seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado since they do in a politician, but they’re the same traits that give a young, non-politician the exceptional capability to serve the general public. Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there is no losing. « The very fact that we are on the ballot is unbelievable, and that we are ready to inspire people to run or participate in the political process — that’s a win. That’s a massive triumph, » he states.

Kissel needs others to take heart in this message, too: « Losing is a big fear for individuals, but who cares! Just get out there, and if you keep getting out, continue doing it in any area, you are gonna triumph. »
