From the moment Ralphie May walks onto the stage, he demands attention with his 400-pound frame and incongruously high-pitched voice, juxtaposing quick barbs and lengthy pauses to wittily lance society's absurdities. His Southern drawl and babyish looks won him second place in NBC's Last Comic Standing and launched him into the comedy stratosphere, where he starred in several Comedy Central specials and DVDs, including Prime Cut, in which he pokes fun at the adorably awful hairstyles popular in his native Dixie. This past March, during his Too Big to Ignore special, Ralphie mused on the unforeseen perks of resembling a famous transgender celebrity.
Bearing the alias "Fluffy" from his first big show, I'm Not Fat … I'm Fluffy, Gabriel Iglesias also plays on his hefty frame with good humor. Wearing his signature Hawaiian shirt, he wends his way through endearing stories of his love of food and personal mishaps. Also host of the TV series Gabriel Iglesia Presents Stand-Up Revolution, his tales have touched on everything from the intestine-knotting tacos in his hometown of El Paso to tubes of personal lubricant mistakenly used as hand sanitizer.
Located amid Mashantucket's rolling hills in the middle of the Foxwoods Resort Casino, Comix Entertainment treats audiences to shows from the country's top touring performers. The 1,400-seat Fox Theater gives up-and-coming jokesters the chance to hone their act, whereas the 4,000-person MGM Grand Theater hosts such hilarity-generating superstars as Louis C.K., Jim Gaffigan, and Margaret Cho. Before shows, guests can take advantage of happy hour, sampling a menu of tasty appetizers and drinks.
