Ben Rosenfeld to Record THE UNITED STATES OF RUSSIA Comedy Album at The PIT

On Sunday September 24th, Comedian Ben Rosenfeld, a Russian born Jew based in New York City, returns to record his third comedy album.

This time Ben covers such topics as his being raised by loveably insane Russian immigrant parents, American politics through an outsider's perspective and his recent decision to get married - mostly to make his jokes more relatable.

Ben's second album, "The Russian Optimist," reached Amazon's Top 5 best selling comedy albums. Now Ben returns to record his third live stand up comedy album, "The United States of Russia." If you like your laughs sprinkled in with intelligence and thought provoking points, you'll love Ben's newest hour.

There will be two shows - 7PM and 9PM - both at The People's Improv Theatre (The PIT) on East 24th street in the Underground room. Doors open 20 minutes before showtime.
