Stand-up comedians to perform at SugarHouse Casino

20 July 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Emmy and SAG-award-winning actor and comedian Brad Garrett joins forces with Las Vegas comedic legend Rita Rudner at the SugarHouse Casino Event Center on Friday, 27 October at 9 p.m. Tickets for their performance go on sale Friday, 21 July and cost $59-$79.

Staples of the comedy circuit, Garrett and Rudner have made rounds in the stand-up scene and appearances in television and film. Audiences have come to know and love Garrett for his role as Robert Barone on "Everybody Loves Raymond" and his booming baritone voice, which has been featured in more than 30 animated films, including the contemporary classics "Finding Nemo," "Ratatouille" and "Tangled."

A Las Vegas veteran since 2000, Rudner — known for her self-deprecating one-liners and quick wit—was named Vegas' "Comedian of the Year" nine years in a row. Her 14-years on the strip (2000-2014) make her the longest-running solo act in Las Vegas' comedy show history.

"We couldn't be more thrilled to host not one, but two comedic greats at SugarHouse!" said Wendy Hamilton, general manager of SugarHouse Casino. "Brad Garrett and Rita Rudner combined is a powerhouse performance you won't want to miss."

With a stand-up career spanning more than 30 years, Garrett is a principal player in the comedy scene, having opened his own comedy club at the MGM Grand and performing to sold-out audiences. Following his performance in Neil Simon's "The Odd Couple" on Broadway, Garrett most recently starred in the second season of the critically acclaimed series "Fargo" on FX.

Rudner continues to be a house-filling favorite and has performed more than 2,000 sold-out shows. In addition to starring in multiple comedy specials for HBO and PBS, Rudner has maintained a robust career writing and producing plays, comedy specials and a radio series for BBC.

Tickets for Garrett and Rudner's show, and for all SugarHouse performances, including Golden Boys (21 July), Kellie Pickler (5 August), Rick Schuler's tribute to John Denver (26 August), Scotty McCreery (16 September) and Billy Gardell (13 October) can be purchased on the SugarHouse Casino headliner concerts page.

In addition to live performances and concerts, the SugarHouse Casino Event Center can be reserved for a variety of occasions, including weddings, corporate receptions, seminars, trade shows and more. The space features floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of the Delaware River waterfront and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Parking is always free.
