Ben Schwartz

Ben Schwartz is more than just Jean-Ralphio, as much as it might pain some of the ladies out there. Before breaking hearts in the Snakehole Lounge he was killing it in New York City performing with Hot Sauce Academy and freelancing jokes for The Late Show with David Letterman and Saturday Night Live. He recently starred in Peep World where he unfortunately didn’t rap or hit on April Ludgate. Also, and I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this, he plays Jean-Ralphio on Parks and Recreation.
