‘Tis the season to be jolly at Empire City Casino in Yonkers, NY. Instead of “gobble, gobble, gobble” and “ho, ho, ho,” comedy fans will be roaring “ha, ha, ha,” with a trio of Wednesday Night Comedy Shows this November and December. Get your stuffing on, and head to Yonkers to see Yamaneika Saunders on November 15th, the Howard Stern Show’s Shuli Egar on November 29th, and D.C. Benny on December 13th.  

Make room for the turkey and burn-off some pre-Thanksgiving calories laughing out loud as Saunders (above), stand-up veteran of more than a decade and semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, takes the stage alongside featured performer Harry Terjanian and MC Chris Jones on November 15th.  Then roll on over to the casino on November 29th (fat pants welcomed and even encouraged), as Shuli Egar from The Howard Stern Show helps you work off the cranberry sauce through laughter.  He’ll be joined by Leah Bonnema, with Empire City’s own Darragh Riordan as host.  No promises Riordan’s casino family doesn’t troll him on-stage again!  And before Santa makes his way down from the North Pole, D.C. Benny will light up the holiday comedy tree on December 13th, with featured comic Brandon Fitzgibbons and MC Lance Weiss adding to the decorations. 

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets for Empire City Casino’s comedy shows are sold the night of the event and come with a complimentary drink ticket.  Tickets start at $5 for Empire Club Members and $25 for non-members; non-members can stop by any promotions booth prior to the show and join the Empire Club for free.
