Ben Kissel Height

Podcaster/comedian/writer/politician a Renaissance Man. His podcast « Last week about the Left », for he’s a co-creator and co-host, won a Webby and has been listed among Itunes Top 10 most downloaded comedy podcasts of 2017 with over a million readers. 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’s a political pundit with appearances on CNN, Fox News Network, HLN along with a nationwide radio host with worked on Sirius Radio and Fox News Radio. In 2015 as a political activist he managed to overturn an anti-cross dressing law in New Jersey.

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

Released each Friday the episodes are normally 1 hour in length, with the hosts exploring the horrors of the planet both real and imagined. Past 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 the podcast and produce The Last Stream on the Left, a live-streaming spinoff series about the Adult Swim website.

In the post-Trump age, with 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 one hand, the 2016 election showed us that applicants don’t need to be capable to win. On the flip side, it was a rude awakening that the dissatisfied have to take politics into their own hands.

Enter Ben Kissel. At his « day job, » Kissel — combined 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 graph and attracts fans throughout the world. But like most dismayed young Republicans, Kissel chose 2016 as a wake-up telephone to run for office.

As somebody who’s been listed in podcasts and around the radio for eight decades, Kissel admits that a lot of individuals wait to run for office for fear of criticism or having their previous exposed. His advice? Own it. In the end, he says, everyone has their own past, and so long as you « deal with the Republicans with respect and humanity, » voters can « accept each of the flaws which go with that person, provided that that person is willing to accept them. »

Much like the offenders he covers on Last Podcast, Kissel says with a laugh, « lots of politicians are sociopaths without a ideology. Obviously not all them, but we want the people who have scruples, morals, and are worried about their own failings. »

For someone who faces the worst of humankind with dark humor in his day job, 6’7″ tall Kissel truly feels in the best of people. He believes in good intentions, sincerity, and redemption. These traits might seem just as odd in a true-crime aficionado as they do in a politician, but they’re the same traits that provide a young, non-politician the exceptional ability to serve the public. No matter what happens on Tuesday there’s no losing. « The fact that we’re on the ballot is incredible, which we are ready to inspire individuals to run or participate in the political process — that’s a triumph. That’s a massive triumph, » he says.

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 continue getting out, keep doing this in any area, you are gonna win. »
