If you’re a fan of truTV’s The Carbonaro Effect, the outlandish hidden camera TV program, you’re in luck. Borgata will be bringing the show’s award-winning star, Michael Carbonaro, to The Music Box for one-night only on Saturday, February 4 at 9PM.
For those who attended Rob Thomas‘ three shows at Borgata’s Music Box over the weekend, they got to see the musician stripped down to the basics. Nothing but two guitars and occasionally a piano accompanied the record breaking singer/songwriter during his lengthy sets. The intimate shows demonstrated just how skillful of an artist Thomas is and added a very soulful touch to many of his popular pop hits.
Most know Thomas from his stint as Matchbox Twenty’s frontman, but as the concerts demonstrated, there’s a lot more behind the rock star and his hit ballads. It’s clear that Thomas likes to contextualize his music, and that’s exactly what he did throughout the evening. For example, he explained that the hit “3 A.M.” is about his mother who was diagnosed with cancer when Thomas was just twelve years old. He wrote that number when he was in his early teens.
If there’s one thing that you learned about Sebastian Maniscalco during his hour-long “Why Would You Do That?” show at Borgata’s Event Center, it’s this: don’t approach him at a gas station after midnight.
And forget about catching him inside a mini-mart after dark. He’s petrified!
Those are some of the many idiosyncrasies that the wildly popular comedian explored during his six sold-out performances at the resort during the weekend of January 13 through the 15. Best known for his Showtime and Comedy Central specials and his appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and Conan, Maniscalco held back no punches, including at himself.
Rob Thomas, the Grammy award-winning frontman and composer for Matchbox Twenty, will be showing off his personal side this January at Borgata’s Music Box. The celebrated performer plays three intimate shows on January 13 through 15, which will feature his signature solo vocals and style that fans have come to know and love.
There was a point during the stand-up performance of comedian Steven Wright – who played the Borgata Music Box Friday Nov. 4 – when virtually everyone in the near-capacity crowd came to the same conclusion.
Steven Wright is insane.
Not clinically, of course, but hilariously insane. And it wasn’t just that he kept telling the crowd he was. Listening to Wright’s barrage of one-liners mixed in with strange – sometimes very strange – stories, the conclusion was inescapable. He is crazy funny.
You know Wright for his lethargic, deadpan delivery of ironic, sometimes philosophical one liners.
