The Lisner lineup for the fall is becoming more and more appealing.

Last week, we learned Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg would speak at Lisner Auditorium in September. Now comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Tig Notaro will make their way to the stage Oct. 4, part of the Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival.

The festival, produced by Brightest Young Things and curated by Notaro, starts Oct. 1 and will feature a selection of comedians from D.C. and across the country.

Notaro, known for her dry sense of humor, has performed stand-up comedy on “Conan” and held roles on “The Sarah Silverman Program” and “Inside Amy Schumer.” O’Donnell rose to fame with “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and recently signed on to be a guest host on “The View.”

Tickets for their comedy night start at $29.99 and are on sale now.
