Stand-up comedian Ben Kronberg invades Boise

“I’m not a storyteller,” quirky comedian Ben Kronberg says. “Just ideas and thoughts. Even the songs I do are one-linery.” Despite TV exposure ranging from Comedy Central (“The Half Hour”) to NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” Kronberg is still a secret in many markets. This is the first time he’s brought his bizarrely hysterical act to Boise. He’s looking forward to earning new converts, he says. “I think people like to be surprised,” Kronberg explains. “I think people are used to one type of comedy, and (with me) they see a different kind of comedy, and I think that can open the ideas of what comedy is to them.”
