Ben Paddon is a British-born writer, actor and geek humorist currently living in Los Angeles. He was born the same day Chernobyl exploded, although he maintains he has an airtight alibi with at least three witnesses.
He’s the creator, Director, co-Writer and Host of PortsCenter, a webseries which looks at unique and interesting ports of video games. Originally planned as a 13-episode run, the show was picked up by RetrowareTV and is currently in its second season.
He’s the co-creator and Head Writer for the scifi-comedy webcomic Jump Leads. In 2008-09 Ben co-wrote the popular web mini-series Boomer’s Day Off, which to date has been viewed over 4.6 million times on YouTube alone.
He has been a guest on BBC Radio Five Live’s Game On to offer his thoughts on the wonky video game review scale, and has appeared in at least one episode of popular sing-along teen angst-a-thon, Glee. No, really.
Ben enjoys sitcoms, video games, eating Pop Tarts, and writing biographies of himself in the third person. His favourite shape is the oblong.
