How do you build a purpose driven, collaborative festival space?
Started in 2009, by Exactly's sister company BYT Media and celebrity Tig Notaro, Bentzen Ball was built with the intention of creating both a great, innovatively curated event and a collaborative environment for comedians and community. Today, it is a big, smart, magical beloved-all-over comedy festival. Every October, dozens of the country's top comedic talent descend upon the nation’s capital performing shows intimate and large in some of the best DC venues. Unique collaborations outside of the comedy world, creative partnerships, and a cause driven concept every year, make the festival memorable for both the comedians and attendees.
