Press release

Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel is home to great entertainment and will deliver plenty of laughs this summer at its two entertainment venues: the 2,400-seat Seneca Niagara Events Center and the intimate 440-seat Bear's Den Showroom. Larry the Cable Guy, Frank Caliendo, and Artie Lange with Nick DiPaolo are some of the internationally known comedians coming soon to Niagara Falls USA.

Few comedians have mastered the variety of characters as impressionist Frank Caliendo. Just some of his more than 120 impersonations include John Madden, Charles Barkley, William Shatner, and former President George W. Bush. Caliendo hosted his own show - "Frank TV," was a cast member on "MADtv," and continues to make appearances as the in-house comedian for "Fox NFL Sunday." Caliendo performs at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, June 23, at 8 p.m., and tickets start at $40.

Larry the Cable Guy will "Git-R-Done" for two performances at 7 and 10 p.m. at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Saturday, Aug. 18. He is a founding member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and currently stars in the series "Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy" on the History Channel. Tickets start at $60 for each show.

Artie Lange and Nick DiPaolo will take the stage at Seneca Niagara Events Center on Labor Day weekend for an 8 p.m. show on Saturday, Sept. 1. Tickets start at $40 and are restricted to ages 18 and older. Each will perform their own brand of stand-up - although they work together as co-hosts of "The Nick and Artie Show" on XM Satellite Radio. Lange and DiPaolo earned fame with "The Howard Stern Radio" and have also appeared on notable comedy shows and movies such as "MADtv," "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and "Beer League."

The Bear's Den Showroom also will be the site for comedy on Saturday, June 30, at 3 and 8 p.m. as "Night of a Thousand Laughs - Direct from the World Famous Friars Club Starring Stewie Stone and Dick Capri" fills the intimate 440-seat venue. Stone and Capri have performed with legendary entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, Sonny & Cher, Paul Anka, and Tom Jones. Tickets start at $30 for the matinee performance and $40 for the evening performance.
