What is a rent party?
A rent party is a party in which tenants hire a musician or band to play for a party and pass around a hat to raise money to pay their rent. The rent party played a major role in the development of jazz and blues music. In this case, comedian Jon Friedman revives the "rent party" and extends it to comedy to help individuals with causes outside of just paying rent.

This month's Rent Party is to benefit Peter Kassnove and Kim Ritter who were victims of a burglary. Kim and Peter were recently engaged but lost the engagement ring during the robbery. All proceeds from this months show will help them recover some of their losses.

Jon Friedman invites friends and comedians to come out and perform for a good cause.

Cassidy Henehan (The $1 Room)
