I can count on 600 hands the number of times I’ve discussed the crushing disappointment I felt over Molly Ringwald’s prom dress from Pretty in Pink.  The buildup was intense and the result was a pink potato sack with a lace turtleneck. The only redeeming aspect of that final scene was OMD’s If You Leave playing in the background during Andie and Duckie Dale’s triumphant/defiant entrance.

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:

    Stayed out at the dinner for too long, showed up for the last song – ended up in a room somewhere just to get cold feet and bailed thinking I was past my curfew.

    Nobody with an ounce of coolness went to my high school prom. I had at least an ounce, and I didn’t go.

    Im soo embarrassed to even write this. My family is very conservative so I wasnt permitted to go to prom. I snuck out anyway by pretending i was going to my friends house to study. My parents got wind of it anyway. They called my friend’s house and discovered we had left for prom. So mom & dad drove to the school to take me home..,..To Be Continued

    My boyfriend and I and one other couple rented a hotel room on the beach and we had all been drinking. My boyfriend said he was in love with another girl. I got so upset I drank until I blacked out and apparently locked everyone else out of the room. I woke up at dawn and found my friend (who was one half of the other couple we were with) waiting for me to take me home. He had taken everyone else home earlier in the evening and just waited for me in his car. I cringe to this day thinking about that.

    Never actually made it inside. Got drunk on peach schnapps and puked in the limo on the way there. Angry parents picked me up, yelled at me in front of all my friends.

    I accidentally head butted my prom date on the dance floor. She then fell on the floor and tore her dress. Needless to say, I no longer attempt to dance.
