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

    Hi there! Oh, do I miss Bezerkeley and San Francisco! I lived out there while my husband was cnlmpetiog his PhD in Chem Engineering at Cal Berkeley. Even though he was a complete science guy, he took advantage of the college scene by joining an a capella group!I loved the bookstores, restaurants, (Zona Rosa, the place to get those big salads, the Long Life Veggie House and Plearn Thai on University), all the great places to eat on Solano, the running path under the BART tracks . I can go on and on. I worked in San Francisco and then in San Rafael for Autodesk. The Bay Area is truly magical, but ridiculously expensive. So, after he graduated, we moved home back east. Congrats on being Freshly pressed!

  • Liz m. says:

    This is far too easy since I just blogged last week about how I would promise Death my life right after I got to dance with my-age-Michael-Jackson. I’ve seen all his moves while The Jackson 5 was at its height. We’re definitely on the same wavelength. And that wavelength would make the dance floor collapse in on itself.

    So yea, 22 year old MJ FTW.

  • Thom says:

    Thom Yorke, Obviously. Everyone on the floor would just be straight up confused/amazed by what was occuring. The video of Thom dancing with the “Single Ladies” music on in the background is a prime example of his awesomeness. Exhibit A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nf7RI4Ka_CQ (as if you haven’t seen this video!)

      one of my biggest reretgs is not having left the area i grew up in for college. i was afraid i’d lose the guy i was dating at the time. too bad he wasn’t worth keeping anyway, & i missed out on an opportunity to explore & learn in a new location. at least i can encourage others to not make this same mistake!go. learn. grow.
