Arnie keeps saying, “I’ll be back”, and he’s been back to Melbourne the last few years for the Arnold Classic. To kick it off he speaks at the Arnold Business Success Summit. This year 2,000 + people came to see it at the Plenary at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. Ben was the MC.
Starting off with impressions of fellow action heroes such as Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Sean Connery. Then with impressions of Donald Trump and of course the man himself Arnie, the audience erupted with laughter. The first speaker was Tai Lopez who is an entrepreneur with the biggest social media influence 2nd to Coca Cola. After that Ben had the privilege of introducing the biggest name on stage the one, the only Arnold Schwarzenegger. Last time he met Ben who was dressed up as the Terminator, this time it was him. Next time when he’s back, we’ll have to wait and see.
Ben Price was recently back on The Today Show on Channel 9. This is the 5th time on the show and the 7th Live TV appearance for 2017. Back with some new voices in an all new challenge and still working and getting very close to Karl Stefanovic’s voice. So it won’t be long before he’ll be back!
Ben was recently in the US for some shows in Dallas, Missouri and Colorado. Whilst in Dallas, Texas Ben appeared on Good Morning Texas to chat with Alanna Sarabia. He was asked to do several voices on the spot and also chat about the upcoming 3D animated feature movie, The Pilgrims Progress. Ben plays a few characters in this movie which will come out next year. Stay tuned. Hopefully Ben will be back on GMT next time he visits Dallas.
Other than nailing each voice, what blows me away is how easy you can go from person to person….if you close your eyes it’s like they are all in one room having a convo!…It’s amazing! Good Morning Texas host Alanna Sarabia
This was Ben’s 1st appearance on The Daily Edition on Channel 7. His 5th live TV appearance for the year and the 7th TV appearance for 2017. Being mid-year school holidays in Australia, Ben provided a number of voices from a few current movies such as Lego Batman, Spiderman and Despicable Me 3. Along with usual favourites such as Morgan Freeman, Arnie and Donald Trump.
May the 4th is officially Star Wars Day and so Ben was back on The Morning Show on Channel 7 with Larry Emdur and Angela Cox, trying out a few of his Star Wars impressions and a whole bunch of others from Disney ones to Trump.
After the success of Ben going on the Today Show on Channel 9 last October, he was invited back. This time with another 10 or more voices to be challenged with. Everyone from Russell Crowe, Lego Batman, Tom Cruise, Gru, Sean Connery, John Cleese and Christopher Walken etc. Not to mention Donald Trump who has been a character working brilliantly in 2017! No doubt Ben will be back again soon with more voices. Who knows who he’ll be next time?
After having several TV appearances in Australia, Ben finally made his US TV debut. First as a guest on CT Style in Connecticut and then on Good Morning Washington just outside DC. What better week to have Ben than President Trump’s Inauguration. His Trump voice was a a hit as well as his usual suspects including Arnie (New Host of Celebrity Apprentice), Owen Wilson, Jason Statham, Ben Stiller and Homer Simpson.
It was the 2nd time Ben got to perform at the famous Dangerfield’s. The Comedy Club where Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Robin Williams, Adam Sandler and many more got their beginnings. Ben was also on radio in New York on WILNY. Ben is set to return soon for some more morning shows and late night shows. Stay tuned!
Over the years Ben has been a guest on 89.9 Light FM several times. Now you can hear him every Tuesday. He’ll be Donald Trump bringing all the latest news from the US Presidential Campaign. Be sure to tune in. Here’s the 1st one;
Ben Price has been doing impersonations since he was 10. Over the years there’s been a list of well over 100. In recent years from going on Australia’s Got Talent to Kids’ WB, everyone knows he does Arnie, Dr. Phil, Owen Wilson and Homer Simpson etc.
People always make suggestions for new characters to add to the ever increasing list. So Ben compiled a list of 85 + new characters to learn. That’s 86 if you’re doing the Maths. So in a short space of time Ben got pretty close and learned just over 60 new voices. Some include Al Pacino, Captain Jack, Jim Carrey, Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Nicholas Cage, Samuel L Jackson and many more. If you’ve ever seen Ben live, you’ll know all his usual suspects. In this new show it’s all new characters and all new material for the Unusual Suspects.
The 2 shows at The Pig and Whistle and Dunyazad in Melbourne were a huge success. The packed crowds loved the new characters and so all the usual ones will still be there, and many more to go with it making it close to 200 impersonations now that Ben can do.
