Best Funnyman to Go Big (2013)

Ben Aaron

In September, if you were watching Ryan Seacrest's game show Million-Second Quiz, you may have been startled by a familiar face, that of Seacrest-sidekick Ben Aaron, a former funnyman on KDOC-TV Channel 56's DayBreak OC morning-news show. That broadcast collapsed several years ago in ineptitude, but Aaron didn't fade away. Nowadays, in addition to the game-show gig, he writes, produces and edits zany segments on New York Live for LXTV, a so-called "lifestyle and entertainment programming production" run by NBC Universal. Plus, he's been spotted alongside Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on the Today show.
