O'Donnell (JFOD) is currently a 'Political Correspondent' on the comedy news television show 'Redacted Tonight w/ Lee Camp' on RT America. According to the Comedy Central Insider, "John F. O'Donnell is one of the more explosive comics in New York City. On stage, he's like a tightly capped liter of soda filled with lit fireworks."

Most recently, JFOD has been given a Congressional Press Credential and will be covering the Presidential Debates on location for 'Redacted Tonight,' which, if you know him, seems like a terrible breach of security.
