A funny story

By Shane Goodman Publisher/Editor

Ben Ulin entertained a crowd of business people with his comedy and magic routines a few weeks ago at an annual chamber of commerce dinner I attended. I’ve seen him perform numerous times through the years, and I continue to be amazed at his talents. After the performance, I caught up with him for a few minutes, and we talked “the business.” I mentioned that we were working on a cover story about the current state of comedy clubs in Des Moines, and I could almost see the memories conjuring in his mind. Ulin, Willie Farrell and others helped to create the original comedy scene here, and they continue to be great influences on others who are trying to break into the scene. It truly is a laughing matter, and we are pleased to tell the story.

Thanks for reading. CV
