Steven Wright Makes Treasure Island Debut October 27

Steven Wright Makes Treasure Island Debut October 27

Oft-imitated, never-duplicated deadpan comic Steven Wright will headline at the Treasure Island Theatre Oct. 27 at 9 p.m.

Renowned for his distinctive stand-up comedy, incorporating irony, philosophy, nonsense and delightful lethargic monotone delivery, Wright got his big break on “The Tonight Show” in 1982.  Johnny Carson enjoyed the performance so much that he invited Wright to appear again the following Thursday, a rarity on “The Tonight Show.”  His back-to-back appearances helped put his fledgling career into high gear.  The comic soon found himself performing on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” and numerous trips back to “The Tonight Show.”

Wright expanded his career to include comedy albums, films and television appearances. Both his 1985 debut album, “I Have A Pony,” and 2007 follow up, “I Still Have A Pony,” earned Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album.  In 1985, Steven starred in his landmark first HBO Special “A Steven Wright Special,” which he followed with “Wicker Chairs and Gravity” in 1990. His third one-hour special, “When The Leaves Blow Away,” premiered on Comedy Central in 2006.

The offbeat comic’s film appearances include “Desperately Seeking Susan,” Mike Meyers’ “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers,” and Nora Ephron’s “Mixed Nuts.” Wright was the voice of the DJ, K-Billy in “Reservoir Dogs,” played a Mountie in “Canadian Bacon,” opposite the late John Candy and had a supporting role in Dave Chappelle’s “Half-Baked.” He won an Academy Award for Best Short Film for “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” which he also starred in and co-wrote. Most recently Wright lent his inimitable voice to the upcoming animated film “The Emoji Movie” alongside TJ Miller, James Corden and Patrick Stewart.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Wright was nominated for an Emmy Award as a producer of the hit FX series, “Louie.” He also guest starred in two episodes of Louie in 2011 and 2015 and can be seen in Louis CK’s critically acclaimed web series “Horace and Pete.”


Tickets are available starting at $50.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.About Treasure Island

Academy Award-Winning Comedian Steven Wright Returns to The Orleans Showroom Nov. 25-26

steven_wright

Comedian, actor and producer Steven Wright will bring his deadpan delivery and trademark satire to The Orleans Showroom on Nov. 25-26.

Wright got his start as a performer at Ding Ho’s Comedy Club and Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge, Mass. Having been seen at the venue by the producer of “The Tonight Show,” Wright was invited to appear on the show alongside host Johnny Carson for his first televised appearance. Wright was invited to return the following week for a rare back-to-back performance. His unique style of comedy and lackluster voice caught the world’s attention, and he later appeared on “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night with David Letterman.” He would go on to star in two HBO specials – “A Steven Wright Special” and “Wicker Chairs and Gravity.”

In 1985, Wright received a Grammy Award nomination for his debut comedy album, “I Have a Pony.” Twenty-two years later, he received a second Grammy Award nomination for its sequel, “I Still Have a Pony.” Following his second nomination, Wright became the first inductee into the Boston Comedy Hall of Fame.

In 1989, Wright won an Academy Award for Best Short Live-Action Film for the satirical production “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” which he starred in and co-wrote. Wright has also starred in several films, including “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” “Desperately Seeking Susan” and “Half Baked.”

Comedy Central ranked Wright #23 on their list of the world’s 100 greatest stand-up comics. In addition to two guest appearances on Louis C.K.’s hit TV series “Louie,” Wright was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work as a producer on the show. Wright also played the character “Leon” in the first season of Louis C.K.’s web series “Horace and Pete.”

Showtime is 8 p.m. each night. Tickets start at $44.95 plus taxes and fees, and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000; online at www.orleanscasino.com; or in-person at the gift shops inside The Orleans, Suncoast, Gold Coast and Sam’s Town.

‘Unruly’ Ralphie May Returns to Treasure Island October 7

treasure island
Ralphie May Returns to Treasure Island October 7

“Unruly” standup comic Ralphie May will return to Treasure Island October 7 at 9 p.m.

Twenty-five years into a standup career that began at the age of 17 with a contest to open for Sam Kinison, Ralphie May has filmed five Comedy Central specials and toured extensively around the world with the USO.

May recently wrapped two weeks at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal where “the breakout star” moved to the show’s closing spot after bringing the house down with a thunderous standing ovation on opening night. During the festival, he also recorded two TV specials: The Mega Stars Gala for Just For Laughs TV in Canada and The Nasty Show for Showtime.

The raw, uncensored hallmarks of mentor Kinison are evident in May’s set, but he doesn’t deal in simple outrage, building a routine that’s rich, deep and fearless. He balances boyish charm, withering introspection and compassion for his fellow human being with observations both dirty and honest.

“When I was a kid, my grandmother taught me how to crochet and how to quilt, and that’s kind of how I do an act,” May said. “I have one-liners, I have dirty jokes, but I also have long stories that are 10 or 20 minutes long and the laughs come every eight seconds. It’s a different set. And it’s a different life than most people have led.”

In his latest uncensored and unfiltered set, he riffs on pop culture, race, his own excesses, the dangers of meeting Anderson Cooper and the mesmerizing deliciousness of Chick-fil-A.

Tickets are available starting at $45.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.

The Kids in the Hall Take No Prisoners in Treasure Island Debut June 5

The Kids in the Hall Take No Prisoners in Treasure Island Debut June 5

Notorious Canadian sketch comedy troupe The Kids in the Hall will hit the Mystere stage at Treasure Island Friday, June 5 at 9 p.m., in the group’s first tour in six years.

On their long-running, landmark comedy series, The Kids in the Hall offered audiences a peek into the absurd and bizarre behavior of the average human being. The groundbreaking five-man sketch comedy troupe was discovered by SNL’s Lorne Michaels in the late 1980s, who took their blockbuster live shows from the packed performance spaces in and around Toronto, Canada and brought it into the living rooms of an American audience desperate for hilarious, edgy, timeless, REAL takes on who we are and what we think when we’re not trying to be polite. No subject is too sacred; no corner of the human experience is too strange or too scary to hide from the blisteringly funny Kids in the Hall.

After their initial 1989-1994 run on HBO and then CBS, The Kids in the Hall continued to air in syndication on Comedy Central throughout the 1990s while the troupe wrote and starred in “Brain Candy”, a film which went on to develop a devoted cult following. After filming on “Brain Candy” was completed, the troupe members disbanded to explore various solo projects, including Dave Foley’s “Newsradio”, which enjoyed both a lengthy run on NBC and considerable critical acclaim.

The Kids in the Hall reunited in 1999 for their first post-series live tour. Titled “Same Guys, New Dresses”, the North American tour was a tremendous success, and yielded another troupe film with the same title. Over the past 15 years, the troupe has regularly divided their time between solo and troupe projects, including two more tours and an eight-part mini-series titled “Death Comes to Town”, which aired in 2010 on IFC in the US and on CBC in Canada.

All five original cast members – Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson – have reunited for a show that will feature both characters well-known and loved by fans of their original show and entirely new material.

Tickets are available starting at $49.95, plus tax and handling fees, and can be purchased online at www.treasureisland.com, or by calling the box office at 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722. Guests must be 18 years or older to attend.

Bruce went on to star in his own “Comedy Central Presents” special, followed by a release of a 2003 one-hour comedy special DVD “Bruce Bruce Live,” 2011 Showtime special “Bruce Bruce: Losin’ It,” and his most recent DVD release, “Losin’ It: Live from Boston.”

Bruce has created crazy characters on the big screen in films “Hair Show,” starring Mo‘Nique, and “The Wash,” starring Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.

Sinbad Brings His Signature Comedic Storytelling Back to The Orleans Showroom January 30-31

Stand-up comedian and actor Sinbad returns to The Orleans Showroom with his unique comedic storytelling and wit January 30 and 31.

Sinbad is best known for various television and movie appearances throughout the 1980s and 1990s, including several HBO comedy specials.

Sinbad’s comedy is built more on stories than jokes, based on everyone he meets, everything he’s seen and everything he does. As the son of a preacher man, he is committed to making his comedy side-splitting but not profane. He also takes the trials and tribulations of audience members and throws it back in their faces, creating a unique comedy experience.

Sinbad began his career as a seven-time contestant on “Star Search.” He spent four years on the television show “A Different World” and starred in his own series, “The Sinbad Show.” Sinbad made his film debut in “Necessary Roughness” and also had leading roles in “Jingle All the Way,” “Houseguest” and “First Kid.”  His appearance on the series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” received critical acclaim.

Sinbad was named one of Comedy Central’s top 100 comedians and was featured in a special program on the network in 2010. He received a NCAAP Image Award two years in a row for his annual HBO special “Sinbad’s ‘70s Soul Music Festival.” Sinbad has also participated in several USO tours.

Recently, Sinbad released a new one-hour special that debuted on Comedy Central. “Sinbad: Make Me Wanna Holla” is a stand-up special featuring a riotous original performance that took place in Detroit.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $49.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075 or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.

Celebrate Thanksgiving Weekend with Bill Cosby at Treasure Island November 28

Celebrate Thanksgiving Weekend with Bill Cosby at Treasure Island November 28

Iconic comedian and actor Bill Cosby brings his signature comedy back to the Treasure Island Theatre on Friday, November 28 at 8 p.m.

Known the world over for “The Cosby Show,” which ran from 1984 to 1992 on NBC, Cosby broke racial barriers and sent a powerful message to viewers – the family unit and raising children matters most. The No. 1 rated sitcom earned six Emmy Awards, three Golden Globes and 10 People’s Choice Awards. It helped set the stage for Cosby’s career as an author, as his book “Fatherhood” remained at No. 1 for more than half of its 54 weeks on The New York Times Best Seller List. Among Cosby’s other titles are “Time Flies,” “Love and Marriage” and most recently, “I Didn’t Ask to be Born: (But I’m Glad I Was).”

In December 2013 Cosby’s first comedy special in 30 years, “Bill Cosby: Far From Finished,” debuted on Comedy Central, and he was recently signed by NBC to star in a new sitcom that will debut in 2015.

A champion of youth, Cosby’s dedication to helping children realize their potential is evidenced through his Emmy Award-winning “Little Bill” animated series, which aired on Nickelodeon and CBS. His other television and film credits include “Obkb,” “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” “The Cosby Mysteries,” “Man and Boy” and “Uptown Saturday Night.”

Few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of Cosby, who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philadelphia housing project. After returning from the Navy, Cosby went on to earn a degree at Temple University and later a master’s and doctorate in Education from the University of Massachusetts. His lifelong contributions to American culture were recognized with a Kennedy Center Honor in 1998, the Presidential Medal of Freedom in July 2002, and the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2009.

Tickets are available starting at $59.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.
