    If you enjoy the sweet release of laughter (and really, who doesn't?), you’re going to want to get your tickets for Bentzen Ball. Organized by nightlife powerhouse Brightest Young Things and curated by Tig Notaro, this four-day comedy festival stars more than just a smattering of major names. With a veritable smorgasbord of great events — stand-up shows, a showcase of handsome, funny dudes (they exist!), live podcast performances — this is your sweet spot for mid-October entertainment.
