Known for his role on the daytime television series The Bold and the Beautiful, Sean Kanan is more than a hot face on a soap opera: he starred in the 1989 cult-hit movie, The Karate Kid III, has held leading roles in several independent and studio films, and has had great success as a producer and writer, having written, executive produced and acted in the Lion’s Gate film Chasing Holden. Oh, and he’s authored a book: The Modern Gentleman: Cooking and Entertaining with Sean Kanan, a hybrid cookbook and advice book for young men.

If that wasn’t enough, Kanan has also gone on to rule the stage – the stand-up stage that is.  He has performed stand-up at some of the country’s leading clubs including The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and Dangerfield’s, and next week, on Monday, February 12th, and Tuesday, February 13th, he’ll bring his stand-up routine to Empire City Casino in Yonkers, NY for an exclusive two-night engagement, alongside Justin Rupple.

Limited tickets are available for each night and cost only $20 per person, which includes beer and wine from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Empire Club membership is required to purchase tickets; non-members can join the free Empire Club at the door while purchasing tickets. 

Kanan, who recently completed a major supporting role opposite Jason Patric in the feature period film Gangster Land, will meet and greet fans following each show.
