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?
Check out Ben’s latest showreel below:
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.
Ben Price went back on Kids’ WB for 2016. In an all-new segment, “Laugh Along with Lauren”. Watch Ben play various characters chatting to Lauren Phillips about various topics off the cuff.
Ben also got to play various characters wishing people all the best for their birthdays’. By the way if you have a birthday coming up or know a friend who does, why not book Ben to come and appear to do a show! Also visit Ben’s shop on here to purchase some of his merchandise.
Ben had a great time with AFL team North Melbourne pranking a few of their players who were in the phone room as part of their membership drive. The prank was so effective it made the daily newspapers! View the prank at the link below.

For years Ben has been doing Arnold Schwarzenegger on stage and even getting dressed up as Arnie. The man himself wanted to know who does the make up and said, “It looks good, she’s done a great job”. Now just like Ben’s Dr. Phil and Matt Preston and Tony Abbott etc. Ben has got the full prosthetic face made up as Arnie.
The make-up is done by Odd Studio who recently worked on the new Mad Max and Pirates of the Caribbean movies. They can transform Ben into just about anyone.
Have a look at their work on Arnie below and Tony Abbott recently. Ideal for a conference or corporate dinner.
