Ticket Alert: Comedians Aplenty

To avoid scalpers and Craigslist scams, consult this handy guide to the shows soon to go on sale …

Judging by the shows going on sale this weekend, the Borgata is about to be inundated with comedians in a big way. First up is Lisa Lampanelli (pictured), who has made a career out of insulting people. In the first minute of this YouTube clip, she takes on Hispanics, black guys, skinny women, and bald men, and talks about her black dildo (February 15th, $49.50 to $55). She’s followed by impressionist Frank Caliendo, who can only get so much more out of his tired old George Bush shtick (February 28th, $40 to $45). Then, somebody bring a crash cart, because 82-year-old Don Rickles, the original insult comic, is coming your way (March 6th and 7th, $75). And finally, there’s Lewis Black, who is pretty funny when talking about nuclear holocaust (March 13th and 14th, $75).
