This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: http://www.heineken.com/ More Bentzen Ball shows available at: http://www.bentzenball.com Stay informed: http://www.twitter.com/byt

Really!

Nailed it. Did you hear that? My idea just got seconded. This conference call is crazy.

Work is crazy, right?

I can’t believe this conference call is going so well!

I’m not exactly sure what we’re talking about but I think it’s positive.

It’s important to have positivity in the work environment. For example, this new system of checking out AA batteries is really going to help us rethink how we approach technology. Positivity. Get it?

Oh yea, we’re really up-to-date on technology. We just hired a bunch of interns for things like

Twitter and Tweetdeck and Hootsuite and a bunch of other stuff I’ve never heard of.

Oh! Cool! New initiative! We’re all going vining! Company outing!

Nevermind, I didn’t know what vining means. I guess we’re not going on a company outing.

Sorry, I didn’t hear that last thing.

What do I do? Reports. I report on synergy in reports. And social media. Hold on, new initiative.

I’m really excited for this weekend. We’re going to a show. The girlfriend loves seeing music.

Man, can you believe what he just said! I can not believe it!

Birthday cupcakes! Hello, red velvet!

It’s so awesome that work compensated me for my in-ear Bose Bluetooth headset. I get so much more done. It’s a life saver. Life. Saver.

Ha! Jill just made a joke that was on “2 Broke Girls!” Jill is hilarious! She should try stand up!

She always says the funniest “2 Broke Girls” jokes!

The call is wrapping up. I think it was really productive.

Huh? I’m sorry, my Bluetooth was acting up.

O.K. It’s over. What did you want to ask?

Yea, sure, whatever.
