Borgata Comedy Club Presents Mike Speirs, Paul Bond and Uncle Larry Reeb
Mike Speirs is a very funny NYC based comedian whose likeability and storytelling ability allows him to connect with any audience. On stage Mike examines who he is, what he was, and what he hopes to become. Now in his mid 30's, Mike is coming to grips with being a full fledged adult. Whether he is reminiscing about his days as a heavy drinking party boy, discussing the joy and pain that was his career as a public school teacher, or lamenting over his failure with the fairer sex and his inability to regain the slender physique he never had, Mike's act is fresh, honest, and very funny.

Observational, iconoclastic and joyfully angry, mirth maker Paul Bond takes traditional stand-up and infuses it with incredible energy, empathy and song.  
Awestruck audiences will appreciate how much laughter can come from a simple guitar.
Comedian Paul Bond's talents have been seen on television's Stand Up Spotlight (VH1) as well as in a video shown on Saturday Night Live (NBC).  Bond has also been heard numerous times on radio's Opie and Anthony show (Sirius XM).

Known as Uncle Lar', Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar' wants to help. So in his own twisted way he does. He gives you "tips". Uncle Lar' offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, "That's a tip from your Uncle Lar'." Reeb is a strong, distinct, classic character, with sarcastic attitude and a sardonic wit. He conveys his concepts with rapid fire one liners. "It's a sick world and I'm a happy guy", Reeb proudly announces after stating his particularly twisted observations. Reeb didn't invent obscene phone calls or adultery, but he makes his living talking about them. In a perfect world Uncle Lar' would be unemployed. Where others cringe, Reeb thrives. His sharp wit was custom built to handle hecklers. During a performance a regretful drunk once shouted "talk about sex." Larry retorted, "your parents shouldn't have had it", and of course capped it with, "that's another tip from your Uncle Lar'.
