21 September 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Comedic headliners and rising talent have a new home: COMIX Mohegan Sun, serving up live comedy and craft beer. The new 8,000-square-foot comedy club and craft beer bar located in Mohegan Sun’s Casino of the Earth will officially open on Oct. 7. A grand opening celebration with ribbon cutting is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 9.

COMIX is the newest venue at Mohegan Sun and the only location hosting live stand-up performances Wednesday-Sunday in a 325-seat club designed exclusively for comedy. In addition to delivering cutting-edge shows, the custom-designed craft beer bar will serve 24 local, regional and national favorite craft beers on tap, more than 50 bourbon whiskeys, a full cocktail selection and a diverse bar-food menu.

“We’re thrilled to become a part of Mohegan Sun. We’re looking forward to bringing more programming of laughs and the best live comedy experience to New England’s most exciting gaming and entertainment destination,” said Michael Brauth, Partner of COMIX.

Marc Wiesenthal, Partner of COMIX added, “Our new location and partnership with Mohegan Sun allows us to continue to present the best comedy talent from New York, Los Angeles and nationwide to an audience that appreciates and deserves great entertainment. We also look forward to hosting the biggest names in comedy in both the Mohegan Sun Arena and the Uncas Ballroom.”

“We are extremely excited to be partnering with COMIX, an alignment of two of the strongest names in the entertainment industry,” said Bobby Soper, Chief Executive Officer for the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. “With the addition of the new comedy club, Mohegan Sun will now feature one of the best trios of entertainment venues all under one roof and within 100 yards of each other. It will be hard to find another destination where in a given night, it’s possible for an act like The Zac Brown Band to be playing The Wolf Den, Justin Timberlake on stage in The Arena and Lenny Clarke delivering standup at COMIX.”
