New York Comedy Super Stars Join Bennington Annual Thanksgiving Celebration! See the Photos!

The Hard Rock Cafe was the center of comedy in New York City once again for SiriusXM’s 6th annual Bennington Family All Star Thanksgiving Celebration in early November. Today for the first time ever, all Bennington fans and comedy fans can see the all star comedy show even if they weren’t lucky enough to score tickets live. Two things have made this possible– first, SiriusXM is making video of the entire event available on their app for the first time ever. And to sweeten the deal, the streaming platform is available free to all now through December 3rd.

You will be able to listen to Ron and Gail’s annual Thanksgiving special today beginning on at 2pm and you can also watch the two hour special on demand on SiriusXM’s app by searching for Bennington and scrolling down to video on demand.  The full video will be available on SiriusXM’s app beginning on Wednesday November 27th at 2pm.

This year’s all star show features some of our favorite people in comedy. Cipha Sounds joins hosts Ron and Gail Bennington this year spinning music for the show. Also on stage you’ll see Bennington regulars Earl Douglas, Chris Stanley and Vito Calise, regular guest Danny Kashmere, New York comedy stars like Chip Chipperson, Dave Attell, Big Jay Oakerson, Bonnie McFarlane, Dan Soder, Robert Kelly, Rich Vos, and Claire Parker, and adult star Jessy Dubai, plus fan favorites Big A the insult comic and Stalker Patti. Special guests Naughty By Nature end the night with a phenomenal performance of their hit songs. It’s a true Bennington family event with Gail Bennington, Robert Kelly and Rich Vos bringing their kids on stage for the show for a segment called Kreeps with Kids Say the Darndest Things.

Photos from the event appear below and make sure you listen and watch only on SiriusXM.

A house full of Bennington fans at the Hard Rock Cafe on November 12 to celebrate a New York City Thanksgiving Tradition


Ron Bennington and Gail Bennington hosting their 6th Annual All Star Family Thanksgiving Show at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square.

This year Cipha Sounds warmed up the crowd and played all night at the Hard Rock.



The Leasty Boys- Vito Calise, Chris Stanley and “Red” Earl Douglas take the stage to perform.

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without Big A the Insult Comic.  “I see Ron Bennington is here…”

Chris Stanley performs his hit song, “Take My Ass to the Kreeps with Kids” live for the crowd and they all “laugh till they can’t no mo’.”

The Kreeps With Kids came out live, with their kids for a new segment called “Kreeps With Kids Say the Darndest Things.” But someone’s missing……Jim? Jim Florentine?



With jim and Luke Florentine missing, some quick thinking led to a quick replacement. Mama Calise takes the stage, and captivates Rich Vos and Bobby Kelly.

Forget “The Bachelor.” A very special edition of the Bennington dating game helped Chip Chipperson get a date with one of three foxy New York City bachelorettes.


Chip Chipperson asks questions of three beautiful ladies: Claire Parker, Jessy Dubai and Stalker Patti!

Our bachelor, his winning bachelorette and the ladies he didn’t pick give a big dating game kiss goodnight.

The Bennington Match Game saw brother go against brother with Lock Town’s Chris Stanley and Lock Downer Vito Calise vying for matches from an all-star hilarious panel.

Sadly there were no matches from this panel. But Dan Soder, Bonnie McFarlane, Big Jay Oakerson, Dave Attell, Danny Kashmere and Cipha Sounds did their very best.

The night ended with a killer performance by Naughty By Nature, and free posters, and other swag for everyone who attended.
