On Wednesday, August 31 Comedy Night at Empire City Casino in Yonkers will feature a Brooklyn-born headliner, Sherrod Small. A ‘funny’ fact about Small – he is the cousin of comedian Chris Rock and his brother Tony Rock. You may recognize him from his new show “Black and White,” a comedy/talk show on A&E that humorously explores issues of race relations in America. He frequently performs at New York City’s Comedy Cellar and Comic Strip Live.
Small is also a regular on VH1’s “Best Week Ever,” and serves as a regular guest, occasional ombudsman, and stand-in host of Fox News’s late-night satire program “Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld.” He has appeared on “Tough Crowd,” “Premium Blend,” and “The Chris Rock Show.”
He can also be seen with John Mayer on the parody cover of Tay Zonday’s “Chocolate Rain” and on the G4’s “International Sexy Ladies”. Small was a guest commentator on both VH1’s 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders of the ’80s and 100 Most Shocking Music Moments.
“Yonkers! Those are my people. Glad to be taking a break from my show on A&E (Black and White) to get a chance to do some standup in front of what no doubt will be an awesome crowd. I love the room,” said Small. “It’s been a minute since I’ve been there so I’m pumped to be getting back!”
“With over eight million visitors a year, Empire City Casino is one of the largest entertainment and gaming destinations in the northeast,” said Taryn Duffy, director of public affairs. “In addition to top-notch comedy, Empire City features a casino floor larger than most in Las Vegas, live entertainment, DJ’s and fantastic dining options for our customers to enjoy.”
