Tickets are now available to see Bobby Slayton “The Pit Bull of Comedy,” who will headline in the Night Owl Showroom at Hooters Casino Hotel beginning January, 27, 2011 through April 2, 2011 for a limited engagement. Tickets are $39.95 per person and may be purchased on-line at www.hooterscasinohotel.com or by calling 866-LVHoots. Slayton’s show will run Thursday, Friday and Saturday with performances taking place at 8:30 p.m.
In his hilarious 80-minute stand-up act, Slayton will take on every stereotype under the sun with his quick-witted, acid-tongued style. From the state of your marriage to the state of the union, Slayton dissects it all with his signature politically incorrect manner that has sold out comedy clubs across the country and has most recently been featured in his own Showtime stand-up special “Born to be Bobby”. Needless to say, Slayton will have audiences laughing at things they shouldn’t. The show will also feature comedian Robert Duchaine as an opening act. Guests must be 21 or older.
“There’s no better place on earth than Hooters Casino Hotel to launch my return to Vegas,” said Bobby Slayton. “Hooters is basically everything I want in one place; Gaming, booze, chicken wings, and Hooters. If they put in a putting green and cigar shop, they could just change the name to Nirvana!” Slayton continued, “With the hours of material from my CDs, Showtime special, audience reaction, the constant turmoil of the world and everyday life, you can be sure my act will never be the same. And remember, if you can’t laugh at yourself, make fun of other people!”
Gary Gregg, Head Hooter and COO of Hooters Casino Hotel said, “It’s with great excitement that we welcome back Bobby Slayton. He was the first-ever headliner to perform in the Night Owl Showroom. We’re thrilled to have his show return to Hooters Casino in honor of the property’s five year anniversary. We know that his intense comedic style is a huge draw. Needless to say, we feel this is a match made in heaven.”
Audiences around the country may recognize Slayton from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as “Get Shorty,” “Ed Wood,” “Bandits” and “Dreamgirls.” Most recently, Slayton appeared in his own stand-up Showtime special titled “Born to be Bobby”. He’s been seen on dozens of television shows including “The Tonight Show” and “Politically Incorrect.” Slayton’s many appearances on HBO have included “Comic Relief “and his own stand-up special. He was a series regular on the HBO series “Mind of a Married Man,” and played ‘Joey Bishop’ opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna in the critically acclaimed film, “The Rat Pack.” Slayton’s distinctive gravelly voice has often been heard on animated shows like “Dr. Katz’” and “Family Guy,” as well as many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, and Tom Leykis. A true comic’s comic, Slayton was voted “Funniest stand-up comic of the year” by the American Comedy Awards and is featured on Comedy Central’s list of the “100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time.”
