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

In 2017 Ben conducted for Brooklyn Borough President together with the Reform Party, which he did not win, but there’s always tomorrow! He’s a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN and a nationwide radio host with worked 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 on the Left is a weekly podcast featuring comedian and podcast host Ben Kissel, podcast producer and writer Marcus Parks, and comedian and actor Henry Zebrowski (who combined in the next installment), most of whom are longtime friends.

Released every Friday, the episodes are normally 1 hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the planet both real and imagined. Previous episodes have explored 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 series about the Adult Swim website.

From the post-Trump age, using a reality TV star holding our country’s highest office, stories such as Kissel’s are becoming more prevalent — droves of young men and women are getting involved and seeking public office. On the one hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants do not have to be qualified to win. On the flip side, it was a rude awakening the dissatisfied have 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 comedy podcast. Last Podcast on the Left is ranked second on iTunes’ comedy chart and draws fans across the world. But like many dismayed young Republicans, Kissel took 2016 as a wake-up telephone to run for office.

As someone who’s been listed in podcasts and on the radio for eight decades, Kissel acknowledges that a great deal of individuals wait to run for office for fear of criticism or using their past exposed. His advice? Own it. In the end, he says, everyone has their own past, and so long as you « treat the Republicans with respect and humanity, » voters can « accept all the flaws 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 moral compass. Obviously not all these, 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 comedy at his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel truly believes in the finest of people. He believes in sincerity, redemption, and good intentions. These traits might seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado as they do at a politician, but they’re the very same traits that give a youthful, non-politician the unique ability to serve the general public. Regardless of what happens on Tuesday, Kissel states, there’s no losing. « The fact that we are on the ballot is unbelievable, and that we are ready to inspire individuals to run or engage in the political process — that is a win. That’s a gigantic triumph, » he says.

Kissel needs other people to take heart in this message, also: « Losing is a big fear for individuals, but who cares! Just get out there, and if you keep getting out, continue doing it in virtually any field, you’re gonna triumph. »
