Borgata Comedy Club Presents Jack Fontana, Eddie Brill & John Pizzi
Jack started out by driving buses of senior citizen on weekends to the Catskills and then change into a tux, to do his comedy routine, change again, and then drive the bus back. No one on any of his buses ever caught on!! He has had many thrills in his life, but one of his biggest was opening for Buddy Rich – his idol.  Happy doing his comedy routine, interacting with the audience, doing impressions and twisting his face to look like famous people, he likes to see people laugh and have a good time, and is happy to bring that to them with most of his material coming from events that have happened in his life.

Eddie Brill is an American comedian, writer, and actor who started his career in Boston, Massachusetts. He was previously the warm-up comedian and comedy talent coordinator of Late Show with David Letterman. Brill tours frequently, performing in the US as well as England, Ireland, France, Australia, Amsterdam, and Hong Kong. He is also the humor consultant for Reader's Digest.

John Pizzi's puppets take the words right out of his mouth.  There's Smiley, a cranky, 99-year-old widow, Smoky, a hip hoppin', jive-talkin' small-time hustler and sarcastic but lovable Andy who hates everyone equally.  Comedian Pizzi closes his show with a gotta see, gunna scream transformation of audience volunteer into a outrageous singing human puppet.

Pizzi breathes life into these comedic creations like the legendary Geppetto and produces laughter he could only envy.
