Long before he got behind the wheel of Cash Cab, Ben Bailey left his home in a small town in New Jersey and headed to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of a career in show business. Six weeks later he found himself on stage at The Comedy Store. Shortly thereafter, Bailey returned to the East Coast and started hanging out at the comedy clubs in New York City. He quickly became a crowd favorite and has since performed at all the major festivals as well as at clubs and theaters around the world.
Bailey drove the smash hit series Cash Cab (still in syndication around the world) for over 550 episodes, earning multiple Daytime Emmy Awards. Prior to becoming “the Cash Cab guy,” he performed at The Comedy Store in LA, in clubs across NYC and at major comedy festivals around the world. Bailey starred in two specials for Comedy Central. He released Road Rage and Accidental Ornithology in 2011; and Ben Bailey: Live and Uncensored in 2016.
Bailey has appeared on The Tonight Show, The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Rachel Ray and virtually every major morning show (TV and radio) in the country. He’s has appeared in numerous TV shows including MADtv, Tough Call with Colin Quinn, 30 Rock, Blue Bloods, Parenthood, Law and Order SVU, Perpetual Grace, Unforgettable, Hope & Faith, The Knights of Prosperity and One Life to Live, as well as several films including BAD PARENTS, DON’T SHOOT THE PHARMACIST and BAD MEAT.
