Tig Notaro’s Bentzen Ball
The Bentzen Ball began in 2009 when comedian Tig Notaro teamed up with Brightest Young Things to create and curate a fun and exciting new way of highlighting comedians while at the same time developing an environment where every person felt taken care of and valued both onstage and off. In additional to presenting the best established and up-and-coming comedians, Bentzen Ball also aims to offer a platform to voices and non-profit partners who are making an important impact in the world around us. Bentzen Ball was proud to donate a portion of sales to World Central Kitchen, a non-governmental organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters.
Guests included: Maria Bamford, Roxanne Gay, Pete Holmes, The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn and Open Mike Eagle, Los Espookys Live, Jamie Lee, Dulce Sloan, Catherine Cohen, Aparna Nancherla, Yamaneika Saunders, Rory Scovel, Jay Pharoah, Jermaine Fowler, Sasheer Zamata, Jaboukie Young White, and more.
