Table Mountain Casino hosts Brad Garrett

29 February 2008

FRIANT, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The hilarious TV star of Everybody Loves Raymond and 'Til Death, Brad Garrett, will perform his live comedy routine in the Table Mountain Casino Event Center on Tuesday, March 18.

He's entertained millions with his self-deprecating humor and quirky expressions in TV roles and recent feature film Music and Lyrics, in addition to lending his voice to Night at the Museum and animated features Ratatouille, Finding Nemo and Garfield. Winner of 3 Primetime Emmys, Brad Garrett has received numerous Emmy and Screen Actor Guild Award nominations including a 2003 Emmy nomination for his portrayal of the great comedian, Jackie Gleason, in a TV movie.

The 6'8" comedian made his first appearance on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson at the age of 23, making him one of the youngest comedians to ever perform on the show. His appearance with Carson brought Garrett national attention, and soon he was appearing as an opening act for such headliners as Diana Ross, Liza Minnelli, Frank Sinatra, and Sammy Davis, Jr.

As Robert Barone, Raymond's brother during the 9-year run of Everybody Loves Raymond, Brad Garrett became a household name. In the series 'Til Death, Garrett plays the husband of a long married couple of 25 years who's lives are shaken up when a pair of feisty newlyweds move in next door.

In 2005, Garrett took to the stage to appear on Broadway as Murray the Cop in the revival of Neil Simon's The Odd Couple with Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. Garrett's uncanny portrayal of 'The Great One' Jackie Gleason in a 2002 TV movie earned him critical acclaim.

An avid Poker player, Garrett won the fifth season championship of Celebrity Poker Showdown, and played in the 2005, 2006 and 2007 World Series of Poker tournaments.

"We are proud and honored to continue Table Mountain Casino's tradition of presenting a variety of outstanding performers to the Central Valley," says John Mayewski, President and CEO of Table Mountain Casino. "Mr. Garrett's humor and comedic talent will provide another quality entertainment experience to remember for years to come."
