Borgata Entertainment Blog – Comedy, Shows & More
Borgata’s all-star entertainment line up never fails to have something for everyone, and this upcoming spring season offers a wide variety of comedy and music concerts that will surely be the talk of Atlantic City…and beyond! Why not make your concert going experience into a mini Borgata vacation by booking one of our signature hotel rooms and dining at one of our world-class restaurants before the big show? There’s nothing better than leaving our Event Center or Music Box and having the world of Borgata at your fingertips! Check out these four upcoming shows at Borgata that we think will be great for our OUT at Borgata fans.
James Cawley has been ranked the number one Elvis impersonator in the USA by a committee of Elvis fan club presidents, beating out over 2500 contestants. His amazing resemblance to “The King” in appearance, mannerisms, and voice has also earned him finalist status in the Worldwide Elvis impersonator contest. Now, Cawley is bringing his Elvis tribute show, The King in Concert, to Borgata’s Music Box for one night only, Friday, March 17, starting at 9PM.
Your favorite Borgata restaurants are serving up a taste of Atlantic City Restaurant Week, Sunday, March 5 through Friday, March 10. Select Borgata eateries are offering special prix-fixe menus for lunch and dinner that are not only a great deal, but an ideal way to experience new tastes at the East Coast’s premiere dining destination.
Comedy as always been king at Borgata, but now we have proof to support that claim! Rolling Stone recently released a list of the “50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time,” a definitive guide to the men and women who have kept us rolling in the aisles for decades. Almost half of the comedians who made the list have played at our Event Center or Music Box, with several of the all-stars making appearances this upcoming year.
That’s not news to anyone who has seen the red-haired comedienne in the past, or to anyone who has followed her career for years…
Get ready to enjoy a summer full of hot concerts and comedy! Some of the biggest names in entertainment are headed to Borgata, the East Coast’s premiere casino and resort, for an experience unlike anything else. The tickets for these exciting shows are sure to go fast, so make sure you book your seats by visiting our Box Office, or buy your seats online now.
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.
