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: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

Youth of Today is a new column (named after the hardcore band) inspired by all the awesome early twenty somethings and teenagers that are making stuff happen, working on cool projects, and living life on their own terms.

Heads up if you haven’t figured this out yet Odd Future is way more than just music, they are a creative force to be reckoned with in a variety of mediums. I dig it, and decided to interview photographer, skateboarder, and store manager Sagan Lockhart to discuss this more in depth.
BYT: So, you currently manage the Odd Future store on Fairfax Avenue, what is the most interesting experience you’ve had working in the store so far?
Sagan: Everyday is something different, nothing in particular that stands out but a lot of people come in and have gifts for Tyler or whoever or just want to take a picture with the staff. I try and be friendly about it but it can get weird.

When you aren’t working (and even when you are) you seem to be living a very unique life… what does a typical day for you usually involve?

I wish I could have a typical day!

You’ve toured with Odd Future and took some cool photos, when did you first get into photography and who or what inspired you to pick up a camera?

I’ve toured with them selling merch. I just happened to have a camera so naturally I would take photos. My godfather was a photographer for hustler so I had grown up around that type of environment and it always seemed interesting to me. I never got a camera until a little over a year ago from my friend Ian… one of the best things that could have happened so if you’re reading this thank you!

Along with all of your other ventures/adventures, you recently started your own magzine, Fersher. How did that come about and where you do see it headed?

I just wanted to have a fun project with friends,  I like to stay busy so it just seemed like a fun idea. I have a few plans for the zine but only time will tell where it ends up… or doesn’t haha.

Who are some Los Angeles based photographers or young photographers in general you think people in D.C. should check out?

Eddy “Legohead” Tekeli, Josh Terris,  Natalia Mantini, and Davon Jefferson.

Skateboarding is another big part of your life, when did you first start skating and what are some of your favorite skate spots in the Los Angeles area?

I started skating about 14 years ago and spots have come and gone over time but nothing will ever beat just cruising downtown with a group of friends.

You had a lot of success with your Sagan Lockhart shirts should we expect any new shirts in the future or should people start trying to hunt them down on ebay?

As far as the sagan shirts go they are done forever, but I would like to make some photo tees whenever I get around to it.

Tell our readers about about Loiter Squad, what is your involvement in it?
I’ve just been in a few skits, I haven’t even seen them all so everything will be just as surprising to me as it is to you.

BYT: Final thoughts + Feelings, whatever (If any)
Sagan Lockhart: thanks shannon for doing this interview
