Doors open 6:30 p.m., an all-you-can-eat buffet starts 7 p.m., and the show begins 8 p.m.
Admission is $30. Proceeds benefit Elks charities.

His A.C. credits also include headlining, along with two other comedians, a tribute to his friend Ray Garvey, the Brooklyn-born cop turned comic who founded the Borgata Comedy Club in 2003 and died in 2010.
