Bonus Trivia

.

Worked frequently with writer/producer Loren Bouchard, who created "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist," "Home Movies," "Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil" and "Home Movies."

.

Benjamin's comedy career began in Boston, where he was a member of an improv troupe led by David Cross and had a conceptual stand-up comedy duo with Sam Seder in which Benjamin would merely sit silently on stage and read while Seder told jokes.

.

The character of Ben in "Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist" was created expressly for Benjamin and incorporated many of his mannerisms. Most of his dialogue with Jonathan Katz and Laura Silverman was improvised during recording sessions.

.

Benjamin's son Judah appeared in several of his father's online videos, including one in which Jon claimed to have pranked Judah by speaking to him only in a British accent from birth to the age of nine.

On his distinctive voice: "I'm not a fan of it." -- Backstage, January 24, 2011

.

On fans who discover that he looks nothing like the handsome Sterling Archer: "There’s been a bunch of people who have not done well to disguise their disappointment. You have a lot of people going 'Oh, too bad.' I think it’s more shattering hopes." -- Zap2it, February 7, 2013
