Nashville's Late-Night Talk Show
A Late-Night Show That’s Neither Late nor Shown
The Ben & Morey Show has become an entertainment gem, a place where people can catch a smart show for cheap ($10!) at 8 p.m. on a Thursday night.
Ben and Morey are even more fun than Stephen Colbert, and there are two of them! See them now so you can say you knew them when.
Now Heeere’s Ben and Morey!
Twenty-something college buddies Ben and Morey, along with producer Davis Hunt, launched the quirky homespun program — think Wayne’s World meets Johnny Carson — in 2015.
Nashville deserved a place on the short list of mononymous comedy duos and now we have Ben and Morey. One day they could be a monument in Centennial Park. Alive at this writing, they are more fun than a monument. And much less expensive.

It’s smart, live humor. And cleverly, pretending to be not-ready-for prime time.
In an age of streaming entertainment, it’s hard to explain what Ben Oddo and Morey Hill are doing with a live, untelevised talk show in a black-box theater at Centennial Park, but that’s why it’s awesome.

Vivek and I had so much fun on the show. Ben and Morey’s witty sense of humor, keen sense of observation and unabashed requests for free food totally won us over!
These guys are hilarious! Who’d have ever thought they’d get their lives together after prison? We’re so proud of them. Thanks for all the conjugal visits, boys!
