Ben Roy is a comedian who’s often compared to the late Bill Hicks. Roy yells a lot, so he is likely used to those comparisons to Hicks and to other famous yeller Lewis Black. Roy’s experience on stage leading various punk bands is apparent with his in-your-face style, and he’s quite unafraid to acknowledge and openly wrestle with his many demons during his act. Roy embraces it, as one would guess from the URL of his website, benroyyellsalot.com, which prominently features an artsy picture of him mid-yell on its landing page. The great thing about yelling comedians is that their performances can be cathartic for audiences, because everyone who’s paying attention to the world is at least a little mad inside. Roy is also famously a member of the Denver-based Grawlix comedy group with two of his friends.
