Casino to fill the comedy gap

carmen_headshot_hi_resWhat’s so funny about a casino in Western Maryland?

Rocky Gap Casino Resort will answer that question every other Thursday starting Jan. 23, when it opens a Bonkerz Comedy Club, a national entertainment chain, at the Allegheny Event Center. The first headliner is Carmen Vallone (pictured), whose TV appearances include “Last Comic Standing.” The second show, the official grand opening on Feb. 6, features James Yon, host of Dish Network’s “Viral Breakdown.”

The venue can seat 250 people, and tickets cost $15.
