TULSA, Okla. – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is putting a spotlight on local and national comedy with its new Midnight Joker Comedy Club, held monthly in the Multi-Purpose Room near Track 5.

Midnight Joker will feature an up-close-and-personal comedy show experience inside the 7,000-square-foot Multi-Purpose Room that was built in 2018 as part of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa’s latest expansion. Once a month, the comedy series will deliver the best local, regional and national comics all in the ambience of a true comedy club setting.

“Comedy shows are some of the most popular performances we’ve had on our stage at The Joint: Tulsa,” said Martin Madewell, senior director of marketing at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. “Midnight Joker allows us to not only bring in even more headlining comedy, but to also showcase local up-and-comers that are already creating large followings here in Oklahoma.”

The inaugural series runs Oct. 11-12 and will feature comedy superstar Pauly Shore on both nights, along with four other opening acts. Tickets start at $19.50 and are on sale now.

Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show, “Totally Pauly,” hit the airwaves to major fan approval. The show ran for six years, leading him to numerous TV and film roles, including the one-hour HBO special “Pauly Does Dallas,” and starring in films like “Jury Duty,” “In the Army Now,” “Bio Dome” and those that are currently trending on Netflix, “Encino Man,” “Son In Law” and “The Goofy Movie.” His first comedy album, “The Future of America,” was also named Best Comedy Album by the College Music Journalists in 1991.

Shore has gone on to star in and produce his own projects, including “Pauly Shore Is Dead.” He also produced and starred in comedy specials like “Vegas Is My Oyster” and “Pauly-Tics.” All three are available on Amazon Prime.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. From signature restaurants and gaming to The Joint, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa offers the best entertainment amenities in Oklahoma. For more information, visit hardrockcasinotulsa.com.
