This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ 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. Watch JFOD on Redacted Tonight: ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: ~~~ More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

  • eat some brunch (if you would like for that brunch to be fancy- The Art Soiree has you sorted with their “le marche de noel“, a French-themed holiday market and food orgy. The event will feature a brunch buffet, Chef’s tables (with over 10 amazing chefs participating), wine, mimosas, an art exhibit, silent auction, and live musical performances…
  • then, hang out mid-day @ Luce Unplugged series with John Davis of TITLE TRACKS
  • catch up on your reading, go see one of the kick-ass movies opening this weekend (everything from Young Adult to Dangerous Method to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to Sherlock Holmes 2 will be reviewed on these pages tomorrow)
  • check out the new HAMILTON bar/restaurant which opens today (click here for our first look photos, which are gorgeous)
  • and then-do something nice for yourself and the kids by going to The 5th annual Kicks For Kids Charity Shoe Drive & Concert featuring Meek Mill & Friends @ 930 club.
