COVER GIRL TURNED COMEDIAN TO PERFORM AT EMPIRE

Comedian Aida Rodriguez as a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing

ecThis month, Empire City Casino is shining the spotlight on Aida Rodriguez, a comic who began her career as a model, and is best known for her appearance as a contestant on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Rodriguez, an American comedian of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent, is bringing her style, grace and loads of laughs to Westchester for Comedy Night at Empire City Casino in Yonkers. The former IMG model turned activist is always able to look on the bright side, translating her life lessons into standup comedy routines.

Twice a month on Wednesdays, the casino’s Good Time Room hosts comedy fans at a Comedy Night featuring top-tier talent who have had their own television shows, appeared on the Late Night circuit, and who share their barrel of laughs across the country. Empire City Casino is usually a stop for many comedians on their way to New York City, giving the public the chance to see their favorite jokesters before they hit the Big Apple, and for a better bargain too.

Empire City’s comedy night will be held on Wednesday, December 14, and will star Rodriguez, who intersects her passion for comedy with her purpose of being an activist for women’s’ empowerment. Admission is $5 for those who show their Empire Club cards, and includes a free drink. Don’t have a card? Get yours free at any promotions booth. For those who may not be club joiners, admission is still only $25. Doors for all shows open at 7 p.m.Laughs start at 8 p.m.
