Cyndi Lauper & Boy George
Lauper and Boy George became MTV mainstays during the cable channel’s first few years of beaming music videos throughout the known universe.  Songs like Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and Culture Club’s “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” were in MTV’s heavy rotation and helped send the careers of both artists into the stratosphere.

If there’s anything not to like about the tour it’s that the journey is way too short. While fans on the East Coast luck out, the rest of us, including fly-overs and Left Coast residents, would love to see this package come to town.

Borgata Comedy Club Presents Eddie Clark, Bruce Smirnoff & Uncle Larry Reeb
While attending Mercy college in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. Eddie was approached by members of the student government organization and asked to m.c. a talent show to be held at the school. All of the contestants were singers and Eddie's job would be introducing the performers and entertaining the audience with comedy while the judges decided the winner of the talent show. After the last performer left the stage and the judges started to leave, Eddie asked the judges to return to there seats because, there was still one last contestant. Eddie then went on a 12-minute comedy rampage that ended with him winning 3rd place. It was then that Eddie knew what he wanted to do with his life.

Bruce Smirnoff is a stand-up comedian. Smirnoff has appeared on the TV shows The Late Show, Evening at the Improv, Stand-Up Spotlight, and Make Me Laugh. Smirnoff wrote and starred in the one-man show Other Than My Health I Have Nothing … And Today I Don’t Feel So Good. He has performed at New York City’s Comic Strip, L.A.’s Comedy Store, Atlantic City’s Tropicana and Caesars Hotels, and Las Vegas’ MGM, Riviera, and Tropicana Hotels.

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'.

Borgata Comedy Club Presents Dr. Bill, Artie Januario & Al Lubel
Dr. Bill has been on many television shows including Showtime Comedy Club Network, and continues to work clubs and corporate events and colleges. He has a one-man show, “Doctors Are People Too” that he performs monthly at Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago, and also appears at other clubs around the Midwest.

Artie is one of Boston's premier comedians. He's a pharmacist by day and a comedian at night. Artie travels the country with his incredible act, including Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and all of New England. Earlier in his career, Artie made a name for himself performing with national headliners such as Dom Irrera, Brian Regan, Jeff Dunham, Lenny Clarke, and many more. Now, he is one of the most well known and respected comedians in the area. He is absolutely one of the most hilarious comedians in the country and makes any show a resounding success.

Al Lubel became a lawyer to satisfy his mother and quit to become a comedian to satisfy his sadistic need to torture her. After graduating law school in Florida, Al moved to California, passed the bar exam on his first try and immediately began the practice of standup comedy.  Al practiced law during the day and comedy at night. Getting stage time is hard for a beginning comic, so Al would sometimes suddenly stand up in the middle of Denny's, and unannounced, do five minutes. And Al always did well because he had everyone's rapt attention because people were scared he might hurt them!
