Casino Queen's Belly Laugh 2020 Nightlife
Event Description:
Casino Queen is excited to extend the momentum of St. Louis’ growing comedy scene as they prepare to welcome comedians Bruce Veach, Gary Rittenhouse, Jamie Fritz and host Cory Flament to the Metro East later this month. Guests will be laughing until it hurts during Veach’s highly anticipated live act as part of Belly Laugh 2020, set to take place at 8 p.m. in the 200 capacity ballroom at Casino Queen Hotel on Friday, Jan. 24. Tickets are $10 and available at

Based in the Midwest, Veach began performing in 1985 and, over the years, has developed a style that truly entertains his audiences with a unique twist on real life situations. After spending his early years as a comic in traditional comedy clubs, Veach then performed exclusively as a Christian Comic in churches for eight years before returning to the club circuit. These experiences armed him with the ability to have an audience rolling on the floor with laughter, without worrying about being red with embarrassment. This trait makes him perfect for any type of audience as he relies on wit and cleverness, rather than shock and profanity to achieve laughter. In 2009, he published his first book “Folks love Chicken Wings and 99 Other Semi Proven Facts,” which peaked at number one on Amazon.

Joining Veach for Belly Laugh 2020 are special guests Gary Rittenhouse, Jamie Fritz and Cory Flament. Rittenhouse, now semi-retired, comes in with over 20 years of performing experience and only performs once or twice a year – which makes the chance to see him that much more special. Fritz, a rising star on the St. Louis comedy scene, has opened for Kevin Farley, Jimmie Walker, Last Comic Standing’s Greg Warren, Swamp Murders' Dead Schardan and more, offering a fresh female perspective that appeals to both men and women. Hosting the hilarious event is Cory Flament, a true Renaissance man. From serving in the United States Navy to becoming one of the St Louis area’s prominent restaurant owners, it's Cory's entrance into the stand-up comedy world that has comedy fans talking.

“There’s no denying that the comedy scene is booming here in the St. Louis region, and we’re thrilled to be able to expand our offerings and provide even more reasons for fans, friends and comedy enthusiasts to visit our facility,” said Mitch Johnson, general manager of Casino Queen. "We’re especially excited to get things rolling for the new year with this one-of-a-kind event and look forward to another amazing lineup of live performers to come in 2020.”

The comedy shows are open to anyone 21 and older.
