VERONA — A new professional comedy series, Jokers at The Gig, is being launched Thursday night at Turning Stone Resort Casino, the facility announced.
The series, to run on select Thursdays at the casino’s Exit 33 venue, will feature comedic headliners who have appeared on Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent and NBC’s Last Comic Standing, according to Turning Stone.
Admission to all Jokers at The GIG events is $10 per person, and tickets can be purchased at the door, through Ticketmaster or in advance at the Turning Stone Box Office. The doors open at 7 p.m. with the first comic set starting at 8 p.m.
