Borgata Comedy Club Presents Mike Stankiewics, Eric Lyden & Jimmy Shubert
Dig, it's appropriate that this cat has gigged in nearly every comedy venue in the United States. At home in an eclectic gathering in San Francisco or a rust belt bar come shifts end, this clever comic will turn the tables on everyone. Winner of the prestigious"Best of Philly" award presented by Philadelphia Magazine, Stank takes
you down a road you didn't expect to travel with a conversational style that makes you feel like you're riding the bar stool next to him. Among his international television appearances including "Comedy On The Road" with John Byner on A&E, Mike presents a special wit that transcends all mediums and blows his audiences away! Maybe that's why everyone wants him back.

Eric Lyden’s sarcastic and self deprecating style of comedy celebrates the life and struggles of the working class hero. After dropping out of community college and failing to get promoted at Sears, Eric pursued stand-up comedy… the only career that actually encouraged his philosophy that “Life is way to hard”. Making his lower middle class existence and lack of success the focal point of his comedy, Eric gives his audiences someone to laugh with and relate to.

Always the class clown and entertainer, Jimmy would perform magic tricks for his friends and family. By the age of 15, he had become an accomplished professional magician. He later channeled all that energy into stand-up comedy. Jimmy started performing right out of high school in comedy clubs around the Philly area. He later moved to Los Angeles and started working at the Comedy Store, performing and writing material for acts like Yakov Smirnoff, Jimmy Walker and Louie Anderson, and Andrew "Dice" Clay.
