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:

Here’s the thing. In theory a No Pants Metro Ride sounds hilarious, right? Like, “hahaha, a bunch of people in their underwear, totally out of place, surprising all the regular metro riders!” And, I guess for the most part, the event was pretty hilarious, but probably not for the reasons you might expect.

The event was organized by a group called DC Defenestrators, which I think, can be most aptly described as an improv group. Think liberal arts college/high school drama club, you know, the guys who have theme parties that inevitably wind up into a show tunes singing competition after everyone’s had a bit too much Goldschläger? Yeah, now we’re talking.

At first the whole experiment sounds tittilating, I’m guessing there must have been a lot of creepster dudes (see dude in banana hammock who insisted that he be next to a girl when I asked him to pose with my friend James) who showed up expecting to see some hotties in their panties, to no avail. And that had to have been one of the most disappointing factors about the whole event. The lead organizer, Bruce Witzenburg, not only announced that he had “double-bagged” himself, he encouraged others to do so as well! I can’t tell you how many dudes I saw in gross, baggy, boxers. (See XBOX 360 boxers.)

Let’s not beat around the bush here people. The reason this thing is even remotely exciting is due to the semi-sexual nature of the affair… if you’re not going balls out, and by balls out I mean, some TIGHT shorts, what the hell is the point? I’m just sayin. You all can judge for yourselves.

    “but thanks for your insight Oppenheimer.”

    If you mean this how I think you mean it it’s one of the best insults I’ve read, and that includes mine.

  • Dakota says:

    @Josh B

    i mean, you are right that it was started in New York by a group call Improv Everywhere…

    the facebook message i got, and the event in DC, was organized by a group called DC Defenestrators. the fact that 1200-1500 people showed up IN NEW YORK, might have been a good thing to mention, however, it has little to do with DC.

    but thanks for your insight Oppenheimer.

  • Josh B says:

    First off, you guys need to do some research.

    It’s an annual thing put on by a group called Improv Everywhere, who are located in New York. They have been doing this for 8 years now. this year, they had 1200-1500 people show up.

  • Stephen K says:

    I double-bagged at first. I bought what they called “boxer briefs.” But then on the platform, one very cute, tiny young woman in very cute, tiny panties persuaded me to drop ’em. So I took the ride in my tighty-whities. That’s me holding the overhead rail with both hands. There’s also a close-up of the other side.

    • Lilia says:

      Very interesting I was tihkning the same thing that James was tihkning bearing in mind that the picture was taken the morning of Jan 1st. MMMM Must have been a great party!

    Excellent event…the Naturist and clothes free community was proud to support!

  • Amanda says:

    i’m digging the man panties.

  • yonas says:

    Ummm….the blonde @ +00:17 in the video? Me likey. The boots are an extra special touch.

  • Haas says:

    The only reason it happened in DC is because the NY group encourages people across the country to participate. I’m not a part of the Defenestrators and I think most of the people who participated found out through the grapevine that is Facebook. I’m not sure I’ll do it again but it was excactly what I excpected. A very loosley organzied group of people riding around the metro. What did you expect?

  • Kalynn says:

    Like the above…DC Defenestrators may have organized the event but it was originally started by Improv Everywhere. Kudos for bringing it to DC but the Defenestrators are not the prankster masterminds behind the No Pants Metro Ride.
