There’s no doubt: Mark Gessner is a funny guy. We knew that when we cast him in Guest House, but what do you get when you put him alongside 3 other hilarious dudes? IFC’s newest show Benders (premiering October 1st) - a hockey "bro-comedy" sure to have you laughing from start to finish.
While The Chubby’s hockey team may have an embarrassingly low rank, what keeps these 4 mediocre players going is their love for the game…and beer. What makes Benders so hysterical is the amount of dedication these guys pour into something none of them are very good at, and how much of an effect it has on their day-to-day lives off the ice.
Mark Gessner, who's favorite NHL team is the New York Rangers, might as well be the Mark Messier (NY Ranger Legend) of this rink (show) - he shoots, he scores.
