Borgata Comedy Club Presents Dennis Blair, Paul Bond & Gary Delena
Dennis Blair Is a true Renaissance man. He is an accomplished screenwriter, award-winning songwriter and comedic actor. Yet he is probably best known for the caustic observations and musical satires of his live comedy performances.

Observational, iconoclastic and joyfully angry, mirth maker Paul Bond takes traditional stand-up and infuses it with incredible energy, empathy and song.  
Awestruck audiences will appreciate how much laughter can come from a simple guitar.  Comedian Paul Bond's talents have been seen on television's Stand Up Spotlight (VH1) as well as in a video shown on Saturday Night Live (NBC).  Bond has also been heard numerous times on radio's Opie and Anthony show (Sirius XM).

"EEE-Yes!" Gary is a rock singer turned comedian. De Lena, with his trusty guitar in hand and confident smile, will simply win the crowd over with an enthusiastic set that mixes musical parodies, good natured clowning, a couple of continuous callbacks and an ability to befriend the room by simply chatting. DeLena knows what comedy audiences want and delivering it has been second nature for years. Gary is hosting the morning show on New Jersey radio B-98.5, WBBO, based in Manahawkin. He also does a number of song parodies heard on Nassau Broadcasting radio stations, including 97.5 WPST.

After returning home, he decided to go back home and to break up the monotony of the summer, he joined a community theater. During a play in which he had a comedic role, he so enjoyed the crowd reaction, that he joined his brother's (comedian Gary Valentine's) improv group. He began going to clubs with Gary and realized he, too, had the knack for comedy. He has performed standup up for about 11 years. It was on the comedy circuit that he met Ray Romano. While Ray was getting a big break with his own sitcom, Kevin was getting recognition on "Star Search" (1983). After appearing on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (1992), his big break came at the 1996 "Just for Laughs" Montreal Comedy Festival. Afterward, he landed a recurring role on Ray's sitcom, "Everybody Loves Raymond" (1996). He has since received his own sitcom "The King of Queens" (1998).
