Night of Laughs Begins with One of America’s Funniest Dad’s, John Witherspoon

Thursday, May 20, 2010, San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino welcomes funnymen George Wallace and John Witherspoon to the showroom stage. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $25 and $35.

In 1977, George Wallace caught his break in a Manhattan comedy club, where he used his natural humor and likeable personality to win over crowds.

Shortly after he moved to the West Coast, Wallace became a regular at the legendary Comedy Store and also took his comedy show on the road, opening for George Benson, Diana Ross, Donna Summer and Smokey Robinson.

In 1995, he won an American Comedy Award for Best Male Standup Comedian and was included on Comedy Central’s list of the 100 greatest stand ups of all time. Wallace has taken his show to Las Vegas, where he does a headliner show at The Flamingo Resort and Casino.

Named one of America’s funniest dads as Ice Cube’s outrageously funny, dogcatching dad in New Line Cinema’s smash urban trilogy of movies “Friday”, “Next Friday”, and “Friday After Never”, John Witherspoon is outrageously funny.

Nationally known for his catchphrase “Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!,” his work spans over four decades. Proven Hollywood mainstream for his involvement in The Richard Pryor Show, Boomerang, House Party and much more, he has recently launched The John Witherspoon Collection, a complete line of humorous greeting cards called Spoon Cards.

Every Thursday night with headliner entertainment, San Manuel gives away $1,000 just for seeing the show. To be eligible to win, guests only need a ticket to the show, a Club Serrano card and to be 21 or older. Guests can enter beginning at noon on such days. Three drawings will be held on those nights: $250 at 7:20 p.m., $250 at 10:00 p.m. and $500 at 11:00 p.m. Winners must be present. Doors open at 6:30. Must be 21 to enter Casino.
