Ben Roy stars in "Those Who Can't" on truTV as Billy Shoemaker. He is a member of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix.

Ben Roy is one of the fastest up-and-coming comics that the Denver scene has to offer. A native of Maine and now living in Colorado, he is poised to take the entertainment industry by storm with his unique blend of rant, sarcastic, observational, and high-energy humor.

Featured in the book "Mock Stars: Indie Comedy and the Dangerously Funny," alongside comedy greats Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, and Fred Armisen, author John Wenzel described Roy as, "gloriously erratic, mixing Louis Black's quivering indignation with Bill Hicks' vitriol and David Cross's unapologetic misanthropy." The Onion A.V. Club said "he's like a skinny, punk-rock Sam Kinison."

In addition to being a finalist in several local and national competitions, Roy was selected to perform at the Boston Comedy Festival, The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, the MTV Comedy Showcase, and the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival. After his performances on the New Faces show, he was invited to perform as part of the Best of the Fest.

In 2011 the Denver Post picked Roy as one of seven people in the Denver area as a pathmaker for the following year. 5280 Magazine, Colorado's most widely distributed magazine, voted him 2011 Top of the Town in their personalities category. He is a regular headliner at the Denver Comedy Works, a husband, and a father.
