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: http://www.heineken.com/ More Bentzen Ball shows available at: http://www.bentzenball.com Stay informed: http://www.twitter.com/byt

“Ima be honest with you b, I wrote this shit in one day. I recorded it later, but I don’t know where the inspiration came from. I didn’t smoke, drink, or pray, it just happened when I heard these beats. I looked at my YouTube inbox and my man hollered at me—and normally I don’t even get back to people who want to send me beats because it’s never my style or something like that—but I don’t know, I guess the spirit just wanted me to work that out. One day I just wrote the whole thing in one shot. From track one to track twelve.”

They say music is the only form of energy that enters your subconscious without your permission. It gets in people’s minds and they never forget. Nowadays, music—and personally I don’t really listen to rap—but based off what I heard before, the music is mad negative. It just doesn’t sound good to me. As far as the spirituality, I just use it to try to better people.”

SilkDough – BriskInTheHouse

“I make music and I do my thing, but it’s almost secondary to me—not in a bad way—but I do other things. I try to drop knowledge on people, but in other ways too. I study a lot. This is a messed up world we live in, so I do whatever I can to help people’s lives, you know? That [generosity] isn’t in people in general, so I wouldn’t expect it to be in rap. People don’t realize how powerful music is.”

RainbowwPatterns – BriskInTheHouse

“That album right there is an experience with sound. You don’t just pick one track and listen to it, you play it from one to twelve. I keep it straight to the point. It’s all about lyricism. People forgot about lyrics around here to make people dance. I’m not here to brag about nothing, I just want to keep it real. That shit is just an experience with sound—a whole world of experience.” – BriskInTheHouse
