John F. O'Donnell special taping @ DC Improv Lounge
John F. O'Donnell is psyched and honored to be taping his first one-hour stand up special during Bentzen Ball 2016 at the legendary DC Improv. John F. 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.
