Foxwoods partners with promoter Bill Blumenreich to expand comedy offerings

24 September 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today Foxwoods Resort Casino will expand upon its comedy and entertainment offerings by partnering with Bill Blumenreich, well-known entertainment promoter and owner of Boston’s iconic venue The Wilbur Theatre. With his robust experience working in the industry for over 25 years booking top performers, Blumenreich will bring a fresh and high caliber new lineup of top comedic acts to Foxwoods.

The exciting new partnership will provide guests with larger renowned performers on a more frequent basis. “Bill’s extensive experience and solid relationships in the industry provides Foxwoods with a distinct advantage, allowing our guests to enjoy endless laughs and world-class artists on the stages of our Grand Theater and Fox Theater, the resort’s premier entertainment venues that provide unique and intimate environments,” said Monique Sebastian, Vice President of Entertainment and Marketing at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Blumenreich joins forces with Foxwoods on the heels of the end to a five-year relationship with COMIX at Foxwoods Comedy Club.

Blumenreich helped build the region’s comedy presence as the longtime owner of the Comedy Connection in Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and stepped up to transform The Wilbur Theatre into one of the most successful comedy venues in the country, working with national performers. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to expand upon Foxwoods’ dynamic comedic presence, reinforcing the property as the go-to destination for live entertainment,” said Bill Blumenreich, owner and CEO of The Wilbur/Bill Blumenreich Presents Inc. “Foxwoods' beautiful theaters are perfect for comedy, and will now host the biggest and best names in comedy that Connecticut has ever seen.”

Just this month and next, Foxwoods is hosting well-known comedians and musical acts including Martin Lawrence, Lisa Lampanelli, country stars Jake Owen and Jennifer Nettles, Ringo Starr and more. For the full calendar of upcoming events, visit the Foxwoods website.
