He hosted and produced The Morning AMP radio show on Vocalo 91.1 FM, a sister station of WBEZ / Chicago Public Radio. Babylon has also been making a name for himself outside of Chicago. In 2009 he was a finalist in the New York Comedy Contest, and in 2012 he appeared in the Comedy Central South Beach Comedy Festival. Moving to Los Angeles he joined the production team for the Comedy Central show Why? with Hannibal Buress. He is a fan favorite on the popular NPR weekly news quiz show Wait Wait...
