Benjamin Walker Sings and Loops at Find the Funny

Benjamin Walker, star of the 20th Century FOX instant classic movie Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, loops and sings at a recent Find the Funny at Joe's Pub in NYC.  ALERT **Vulgar Expletive Bomb** when the loop misfires, otherwise this clip is quite remarkable as Benjamin performs as he lays down the tracks, harmonizes with himself and remembers the rhythm, lead and lyrics, in an all live performance!

Find the Funny reappears at 9:30 PM Tuesday October 2nd at Joe's Pub.
