Wits ‘n Giggles Stand-Up Comedy brought to you by Bud Light returns to the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena Saturday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. The night features headliner, Bil Benden; feature, Jerry Jaffe; and host Robb Will.

Feature act, Jerry Jaffe, claims to be the most highly educated stand-up comedian. Jaffe is a husband, father, and teacher, having taught at multiple universities and directed plays on three continents. His wry and ironic sense of humor combined with observational inquiries make for a show that you won’t want to miss. With his PhD in comedy, Jaffe is sure to raise the IQ of audiences everywhere he goes.

Headlining the July 16 show is Bel Benden, who “ate a lot of paint chips as a child”. He is a gifted story teller, finding inspiration in marriage and fatherhood. After becoming a father, Benden realized that more has changed than just his hairline and waistline. Throughout his shows, Benden takes his audience on a journey through life, from childhood to parenthood, and all the creamy, fluffy filling in between. He has been seen on HBO and Comedy Central, and on July 16, he will be headlining at the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena.

Returning as the host of Wits ‘n Giggles is Robb Will, Jamestown, New York’s self-proclaimed 67th Funniest Comedian. Will has performed in Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Southern Indiana where he draws from his life experiences and gives you reasons to laugh at them. Will has famously remarked, “I got into comedy because I needed to laugh, I am staying because you need to laugh.”
