Ben Nemzer is making a rare homecoming appearance in NYC at City Winery’s Magic On The Menu.

Ben was also a performing member of the legendary NY Friars Club (renown for their roasts) which closed over the pandemic. Ben Many also recognize Ben from his “magical wedding” which was profiled by the New York Times. The Broadway Theater Ben and his wife used as their wedding venue has recently been featured on the 2024 Tony Awards, Amazon Prime’s Only Murders in The Building and more.   https://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/02/fashion/weddings/she-said-yes-even-after-he-sawed-her-in-half.html
