Ben Stein

Actor, Author, Economist

It’s easy to forget that the man whose onscreen fashion sense ranges from a first lady’s gown to a Cuban dictator’s uniform, is also an attorney, economist, syndicated columnist, former speechwriter for Presidents Nixon and Ford, screenwriter, and author. Most people know Ben Stein from his wacky TV appearances – as host of Comedy Central’s Win Ben Stein’s Money, and the equally quirky talk show Turn Ben Stein On.

As an actor, Stein is best known as the boring teacher in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. On a more personal note, his book, Tommy and Me: The Making of a Dad, describes how becoming an adoptive father has changed his life. With expertise in everything from law to laughs, Stein offers his hilarious observations on life with anecdotes from his careers in TV and film, and insightful analysis of current trends in politics and economics. He is truly a Renaissance man.
