Ben Wisdom is the emcee and co-producer for Slow Burn Burlesque. Dirty, sinister, inappropriate, outlandish, and crazy, are all frequently and affectionately used to describe his comedic style. Part preacher and part whiskey soaked carnival barker, Ben Wisdom is a burlesque mad man. Whether performing as himself or as his popular character The Preacher of Perversion a.k.a. The Reverend, Pastor, Father, Brother, Ben Wisdom, he is unafraid to tackle any subject. He uses his quick wit and filthy mind to skewer the powerful, rich, evil, famous, and stupid.

In addition to his Slow Burn hosting duties, Ben is the emcee for Bella Blue’s Dirty Dime Peepshow. He also performs regularly with Big Deal Burlesque throughout Alabama, and has been a featured emcee at the Southern Fried Burlesque Festival in Atlanta, GA and the Americana Burlesque and Sideshow Festival in Asheville, NC.
