Three of Saturday Night Live's famed cast members will reunite on stage when they visit MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods for a special performance on Saturday, May 25 at 8 p.m. The lineup includes seven season veteran, Dana Carvey, who established some of the show's best known characters; Dennis Miller, who served as the "Weekend Update" correspondent for six seasons and Kevin Nealon, whose reoccurring role as an anchor on "Weekend Update" made the sketch a show staple. Tickets for the highly-anticipated show are currently available and can be purchased in advance for $45, $60 and $75.
Some of Carvey's best known characters include The Church Lady, Hans from body building duo Hans and Franz, Grumpy Old Man and Garth, the most 'Excellent Co-Host' to Mike Myers in the immensely popular "Wayne's World." He also received widespread praise for his uncanny impersonations of political figures, such as George and George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and celebrity personalities like Johnny Carson and Regis Philbin, to name a few. In addition to headlining theaters and casino showrooms, he is one of the most requested corporate and private event comedians today.
Miller's nationally syndicated radio talk show, "The Dennis Miller Show," has been on air since 2007, and he is a regular contributor for "The O'Reilly Factor" on FOX News. His critically acclaimed, live talk show, "Dennis Miller Live," had a nine year run on HBO, winning five Emmy's in the process. He also wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special, "Raw Feed," and was the host and executive producer of CNBC's "Dennis Miller."
In addition to his pivotal role in "Weekend Update," Nealon created multiple famous characters, including The Subliminal Man and Hans and Franz, and he earned an Emmy Award nomination as part of the SNL writing team in 1988. He has received critical acclaim for his role in the Showtime series, "Weeds," and has made a number of guest appearances on many of today's most prominent sitcoms. No stranger to the big screen, his extensive film career includes hits, "Anger Management," "Grandma's Boy," "Happy Gilmore," and most recently, "Just Go With It."
