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." John has been featured in The New York Times, The LA Times and The Huffington Post, as well as being one of Comedy Central's Fresh Faces of Comedy. 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. This very special stand up event will be directed by the brilliant composer/producer/filmmaker and founding member of Fugazi, Brendan Canty.

  • ChurchKey has announced that it’s teaming up with Eat Wonky on a special, limited-time-only addition to the truck’s lunch menu: tater tots topped with poutine. And these shall be known as Wonky Tots, combining chef Kyle Bailey‘s tater tots (not the frozen kind, mind you) with the truck’s “squeaky cheese and gravy” that it usually serves atop french fries. (Via Eater)
