Empire City Casino will share laughter and fun with a Wednesday Night Comedy Show headlined by Warren Holstein on January 29th. Dave Waite will be featured in this show and John Iavarone will be the MC.
Warren Holstein, who will headline the show on January 29th, is an established entity on the New York comedy scene. Holstein burst forth from Rutgers University with a degree in Psychology and Cultural Anthropology. Graduating with highest honors and a promising future, he promptly took the next logical step of throwing it all away for various smoke-filled rooms of drunken hooligans.
Warren’s unique brand of humor challenges preconceived values and truths, questioning our adherence to them. He presents new ways of looking at the world, which have been alternately described as warped, innovative and enlightening.
His unabashedly honest and engaging nature combined with an innate ability for improvisation continues to move and electrify audiences show after show.
Warren has recently appeared on MTV and can be seen soon in the new documentary Sex, Drugs, and Comedy. He has also contributed writing to Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, the Bob and Tom Radio Show and blogged regularly for the Huffington Post.
Dave Waite, who will be featured in the show, is a darkly-funny everyman whose shows are nonstop fun. Dave has captured the hearts of comedy fans everywhere. His swagger, his honesty, and his endless supply of bizarre catchphrases have earned him a reputation as a comic’s comic with broad crossover appeal. There’s no such thing as a “typical Dave Waite show,” as his willingness to be in the moment takes his performances to places that some comedians wouldn’t dare visit. Dave’s recent CD “Kaboom!” was recorded at Skyline Comedy Café in Appleton, WI by Grammy-winning label Stand Up! Records. Tracks from “Kaboom!” can be heard regularly on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio, as well as Pandora. Dave appeared as a guest on The Bob & Tom Show, one of the most popular morning shows in America, and performed on the fourth season of Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham.” He currently lives in New York City but regularly tours comedy clubs and universities around the country.
