Ron Bennington, host of SiriusXM’s Bennington Show, Unmasked and Ron Bennington Interviews will debut an hour of stand up at The Stand Comedy Club as part of the New York Comedy Festival. Bennington started his comedy career as a stand up comedian and comedy club owner and promoter, but left the stage to pursue a career in radio. Before creating the Bennington Show with his daughter, Gail Bennington, which currently airs daily on SiriusXM, he was a part of two other legendary radio shows, the Ron and Ron Radio Network and the Ron and Fez show.

Now he returns to the stage with a new show, Crowd Source, which will debut at the New York Comedy Festival. It’s not crowd work, it’s crowd source.

Ian Fidance
Ian Fidance
Ian Fidance is an offbeat yet upbeat stand up comic, writer, and actor from Wilmington, Delaware who calls New York City his home; Brooklyn to be specific, but you can already tell by his mustache.

A delicious cup of tea best drank live, his comedy has been described as "bizarre yet funny" by The Interrobang. A popular guest on both SiriusXM radio's "The Bennington Show" and the Anthony Cumia Show with Artie Lange, he's been featured in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, as well as the Boston, Brooklyn, and New York Comedy Festivals, written & performed in sketches for Above Average, Conde Nast, and Funny or Die, was commissioned by Nike to write & star in a live media presentation for their "Hyper" line of athletic wear, and made his stand up TV debut on the third season of AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live."

After working a million jobs while growing up an only child to a single mother in Delaware, Ian has grown to be a live force and a stand out stand up with a fresh, positive voice in comedy. He can be seen nightly riding his bike(cycle) everywhere sharing his unique point of view and wild stories at places like New York Comedy Club, The Stand, UCB Theatre, the Creek & the Cave, Union Hall, and The Bell House. Every month he hosts a live stand up & animation show called "Picture This!" at Union Hall in Brooklyn. He'll hit the road often playing clubs, colleges, and independent venues all across the country, but will usually use his car for that.
