FOXWOODS RESORT CASINO TO HOST COMEDIAN ILIZA SHLESINGER

Iliza: The Confirmed Kills TourStops at Foxwoods Resort Casino For One Night Only

 

MASHANTUCKET, CT (September 14, 2016)– Foxwoods® Resort Casino today announced that they will host comedian Iliza Shlesinger live at the Grand Theater on February 11, 2017 as part of her first national theater tour in support of her new Netflix special “Confirmed Kills,” which premieres on September 23.  Earlier this year, Iliza launched her scripted web series “Forever 31”, which premiered on ABC Networks new digital platform (ABCd) and is also available on Hulu.  The network has already picked up the show for a second season.

After winning Last Comic Standing back in 2008, Iliza took the opportunity to build her presence as one of the hottest comics working today.  Her first two Netflix specials, “War Paint,” which reached #1 on iTunes and was named one of the Top 10 comedy albums of 2013, and the critically acclaimed “Freezing Hot,” cemented her as one of today’s top touring comics, selling out hundreds of clubs and colleges throughout the U.S. and Canada and England.  Her loyal fan base, known as Party Goblins, are as loyal as they come, lining up to meet her post show and even creating their own Iliza swag to wear to her shows.

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 16 and can be purchased online at www.foxwoods.com or www.ticketmaster.com, and by calling the Foxwoods Box Office at 800-200-2882.
