Back to Viral Videos with Actor/Director Ben Giroux – Just Shoot It 180

Our Actor Series continues with Ben Giroux… a comedy actor, director, writer, and voiceover artist extraordinaire! He’s acted in hundreds of episodes of primetime TV (Hart of Dixie, House, 2 Broke Girls, Sam and Cat) and now he is directing TV for networks like TBS and CW. He is truly a self-made man, and he tells us how balancing a career in acting and directing have immensely complemented one another. Check out his massive viral hits Back to the 90’s and Back to the 80’s on his site: https://bengiroux.com/
