Saturday evening our professional stand-up comedy show (for ages 18 and over) in the Dreamland’s main theater will feature Dave Russo & Graig Murphy. 



Host of "Russo on the Road," comedian Dave Russo will tell you "you never know who you’re going to meet when Russo's on the road"!  Dave recently shared the stage with the boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, as well as Tony Orlando at Mohegan Sun's Vets Rock event!   Dave has appeared at the Boston Comedy Festival, on Comics Come Home with Denis Leary, the E!
