    From Niagara This Week:

    Get out your pudding pops.

    Bill Cosby will be bringing his signature story-telling antics and astute ability to make people laugh for two nights in September in the Avalon Ballroom at the Fallsview Casino Resort.

    “It’s a thrill to have Bill Cosby joining the list of stars that have performed here,” said Greg Medulun, director of communications at Fallsview Casino and Casino Niagara. “He’s a household name that will have everyone talking, but more importantly he’ll connect with audiences and give them two great nights of laughs.”

    Pacino at the casino: ‘Cool … very cool’

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It wasn’t a concert. It wasn’t a comedy show. It wasn’t really a performance. No, it was exactly what the posters promised: An evening with Al Pacino at the casino.

    And for a thousand-or-so of the film legend’s fans, that was all they needed Thursday night.

    “Cool … very cool,” said the 71-year-old Oscar winner after he was greeted by a standing ovation. “I think I’m gonna have to go now!”

    Cirque becoming a tradition

    This article was on the Review web site a few days ago and then was pulled. It’s live again today…

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    For years, you could count on the Shrine Circus coming to the Niagara Falls Memorial Arena every summer.

    But with the arena closing this summer, there’s a new circus in town. It doesn’t need bears or elephants to thrill a crowd.

    Returning to the Niagara Fallsview Casino for the third straight year, Le Grand Cirque is becoming an annual dose of thrills and chills, minus any animals. Call it the changing of the guard, says creative producer Simon Painter.

    “It’s a very slick production, seamless,” he says. “To have animals in shows nowadays, especially exotic animals, is totally incorrect. I think (our show) is the way the industry’s going.”

    Instead of lions, you’ll get contortionists. Instead of bears, you’ll get airborne acrobats. And instead of elephants, you’ll get the show’s signature Wheel of Death — a massive contraption that never fails to leave the crowd dazzled and just a bit frazzled.

    Composed of 40 performers gathered from Canada, Russia, Brazil, Mongolia, Europe and China, the show aims to fit as much spectacle into the 1,500- seat Avalon Ballroom as possible.
