Comedian George Hamm to Perform at Scarborough Downs for Kentucky Derby Weekend Kick-Off Event


Here They Come

George Hamm will bring the funny Thursday, May 3rd at Scarborough Downs as the race track kicks off arguably the biggest weekend for gambling addicts everywhere: The Kentucky Derby.

Really, what’s better than some lighthearted, good old-fashioned laughter before you lose your life’s savings? I kid, I kid. I mean before you lose your life’s savings and then your wife leaves you. Again, totally kidding. I know some gamblers are single.

But really, George Hamm is pretty funny and there’s a mysterious “special guest” appearing as well that evening. I’m betting it’s someone funny, too. I’d even put money on it.

If you like to party, consider coming back to Scarborough Downs for the rest of the weekend, too. You don’t have to be into betting to enjoy the Derby. The race itself only lasts for two minutes (sounds like a bad date), so really the rest of the time is basically just a giant rager. With mint juleps, buffet food, and awesome hats, what more could you want? There’s even a “Belle of the Derby” Hat Contest for the ladies. Think Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman when Richard Gere takes her to the racetrack. Chances are you won’t look nearly as hot as Julia, but at least you can be a belle for a day.

George puts the party in gear with aforementioned “special guest” Thursday, May 3rd at 8pm. This is a 21+ event and tickets are just $10. Get ‘em here and get ‘em quick–seating is limited!
