Ben Kuerschner

Ben Kuerschner is a joke writer and cheerful malcontent. At The Pack Theater he is writer, director, and producer for Your TPT Late Night Show Tonight and Your TPT Family Dinner Tonight, director and producer for The Night Cap with Stacy Rumaker, and a member of the house sketch team Gunslinger. He also co-produces the Pack’s yearly three day comedy music festival, Packchella.

Outside the Pack he writes for The National Lampoon’s Final Edition Podcast. He was also the Producer and Head Monologue Writer of the monthly late night live show It’s Past My Bedtime with Topher Harless, as well as writer and producer for The 88 Show with Avery Pearson at the Hollywood Improv.

He began his career writing monologue jokes for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Besides writing jokes for The Tonight Show, Ben worked there as a coordinator. He started his TV career as an NBC Page. He spends most of his current day job posting jokes to Twitter instead; you can see if you think it’s worth it here:

Ben’s tombstone will read “I’m pretty happy with how this turned out, but if you have any notes I’d love to hear them.”
