Comedian Dom Irrera headlines The Event Center at Live! Casino and Hotel Philadelphia on July 22
PHILADELPHIA (April 7, 2022) – South Philadelphia’s own DOM IRRERA returns to his hometown to make his comedy debut at the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on Friday, July 22, 2022.
Showtime is 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $30 and are available for purchase now at Philadelphia.LiveCasinoHotel.com or AXS.com.
A six time American Comedy Award nominee, Irrera’s first big break was his performance on Rodney Dangerfield's “Nothing Goes Right” comedy specials for HBO. In 1989 Irrera’s own HBO “One Night Stand” earned him his first CableACE award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. In '95 he won a second CableACE for the Showtime stand-up series he hosted, “Full Frontal Comedy”. That same year he received a second CableACE nomination in the writing category for his work on Comedy Central's animated series, “Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist”. He also starred in a solo stand-up special for HBO in '92 titled “Command Performance” and a “Comedy Central Presents” special more recently. Dom was part of the 2010 Emmy-winning cast of Nickelodeon’s “Back To The Barnyard”, where he played “Duke” the sheepdog. He has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", "The Late Show with David Letterman", "Late Night with Conan O'Brien", “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, “The View”, and has made several appearances on “Oprah”. Recent credits include the Joy Behar show on HLN, hosting “Half Time” on the NFL network and starring in his own series for Direct TV (now in its 3rd season), “The Supreme Court of Comedy”.
As an avid sports fan, he hosted four seasons of Comedy Central's irreverent football show, “Offsides”, where he conducted hilarious on-the-field interviews with football greats. He also hosted Comedy Central's “Behind the Scenes at the American Comedy Awards: specials in '98 and '99”.
Irrera was a series regular on the ‘98 Fox comedy “Damon” starring Damon Wayans and his guest-star credits include “Seinfeld” (he played an annoying prop comic needling Jerry in the memorable episode), “Becker”, “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “King of Queens”. In addition, Dom voices the character Ernie, the demolitions expert, on Nickelodeon's “Hey Arnold”.
Dom has performed at Montreal's prestigious “Just For Laughs Festival” and “The Cats Laugh Festival” in Kilkenny, Ireland (he's made more appearances at both festivals than any other American comic). He also has performed at the “Melbourne Comedy Festival” in Australia and at “Edinburgh Festival’s" Assembly Hall. It was there that he received the “Herald Award” for artistic excellence.
