Rivers Casino debuts comedy series

30 May 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Pittsburgh's premier casino debuts a new stand-up comedy series, A Funny Thing Happened at Rivers Casino, on Thursdays this summer from 15 June to 20 July.

The stand-up comedy acts will be presented in Wheelhouse Bar & Grill and hosted by local comedian T-Robe. Tony "T-Robe" Roberson got his start in comedy by wowing crowds at open mics and in local bars. Since then, T-Robe has shared the stage with several film and television stars.

This summer's comedy lineup features local talent, as well as comedians who perform around the country, including:

15 June: Ed Bailey and Matt Light
22 June: Ray Zawodni and Aaron Kleiber
29 June: Lisa Dapprich and John Evans
6 July: Day Bracey and Matt Wohlfarth
13 July: J Russ and Mike Jones
20 July: Terry Jones and Bill Crawford

Each night's comedy act begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets cost $20, which includes $10 Free Slot Play or Match Play. Visit the website or the gift shop to purchase tickets.

"There's no better way to balance life than sharing some laughs with friends at a night of comedy," said Craig Clark, general manager of Rivers Casino. "This is a great example of the many forms of entertainment available to our guests."

This summer, Rivers Casino will host a variety of entertainment options at its amphitheater along the Ohio River. The free concert series Live on the River returns this summer, featuring popular local and regional bands. Rivers is also hosting a special ticketed concert with Donnie Iris and The Cruisers on Saturday, 29 July at 8 p.m. Tickets for the Donnie Iris and The Cruisers concert cost $20 and include $10 Free Slot Play or Match Play. The popular, fast-paced Rivers Rumble Boxing returns this summer with a full card of action-packed boxing on June 24 and 12 August. Rivers Rumble Boxing tickets start at $30 per date and include $10 Free Slot Play or Match Play.
