Clap Your Hands Say Yeah may be down a few members but they still got all the Yeah and none of The Clap (see what we did there?).  Despite various solo/side projects the band is touring now to remind you of all your favorite early to late 2000 something memories. Oh hey Lollapalooza. What’s up?

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, but we have a sweet little pair for you now! To win just tell us the kind of scenario you think is best to start a slow clap. Think the final scene in Lucas. Winner will be chosen by COB Friday. Get down on it.

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: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

    A guy you messaged with on OKCupid months ago turns out to be the one roommate you haven’t met in the group house you just signed the lease for. You recognize him immediately and he gives zero indication that he knows who you are. Cue slow clap…

  • Eric says:

    The best slow claps should always involve bad hair, letterman’s jackets, and nerds facing down bullies, a la the classic Can’t Buy Me Love scene (which also features, for bonus points, former pop idol Gerardo of “Rico, Suave” fame).

    When my friends accidentally tells me her boyfriend is from North Korea but she means South Korea. I mean, talk about the accomplishment that could have been.

    Slow claps are best when an entire audience collectively slow claps for a delayed artist.

    In waves, lasting several minutes each, starting the moment your boss announces Oracle is buying your firm for ONE BILLION DOLLARS!

    Around my office, we slow clap whenever someone royally f**ks something up. Talk. About. Shaming.

  • Irene Hepler says:

    When someone finally speaks up to that self-involved individual who places more importance on their time than everyone else’s. À la Dead Like Me’s post office scene:
