Arvin Mitchell is a comedian with a sense of humor, which is simple, honest, and straightforward. His comedy style revolves around his favorite topic – making fun of himself!
For example, he has a hilarious story about why he picked up comedy. It started with a defining moment in his life – when his mother disciplined him in front of an entire class. Since then, he found that he had a knack for making a fool of himself in front of others.
A few years later and Arvin turned from class clown to professional headliner, having shows across all the U.S. He is also very appreciated on the internet, his comedy sets getting many views on Dry Bar’s YouTube channel.

His one-of-kind style of telling autobiographical stories that are filled with colorful characters audiences can easily imagine turned Benny into one of the most popular entertainers in the New York Comedy world.
In this bit from Dry Bar Comedy, he talks about parking warfare being a real thing, especially for folks living in an Italian neighborhood. If you ever experienced issues due to not enough parking spaces being available, then this will make you laugh hard.
