Bob Kephart’s Comedy Stop Cafe & Cabaret at the Tropicana is Longest Running Show in Atlantic City
Kephart’s Comedy Stop Cafe and Cabaret in Atlantic City 27 years and still going strong

bob-kephartBob Kephart has 2 things in common with today’s stars of standup: He’s serious about comedy and he has a drive and a passion to be the best. For almost 3 decades Kephart has had his pulse on what it takes to run a top notch comedy club and an eye for who the up and coming stars will be in the world of stand-up. Kephart recently celebrated 27 years of The Comedy Stop being Atlantic City’s best comedy club. Without a doubt, The Comedy Stop is Atlantic City’s longest running entertainment attraction. What does Kephart think of stand up comedy and the Comedy Stop’s place in Atlantic City’s history. “Standup is the purest form of entertainment,” Kephart explains. “Just a person with a microphone, stringing words together to make us laugh. That’s the real deal, where true talent is laid bare.

There’s nothing else like it in the world,” Kephart adds, “To be doing it in a great town like AC is the icing on the cake” “Atlantic City is known for great live entertainment and we’ve been a big part of it over the years”.

And speaking of great live entertainment, in addition to his list of top comic talent, Kephart can boast having the reigning, “Comedy Magician of the Decade”..Kozak the Magician on board. Kozak is considered by many to be the best sleight-of-hand magician on the none. Kozak performs nightly from 6pm on Fri and Sat with a 7pm start time on Synday thru Thursday.

Many comedy clubs have come and gone since the Comedy Stop opened its doors – including rivals in Atlantic City.To be in business for 27 years is good. To be in business for 27 years and maintain the quality of entertainment second to none is quite an accomplishment. Add to this the fact that Kephart also has a Comedy Stop in Las Vegas, and like the Atlantic City club it is first rate in every sense of the word.

For almost three decades of serving up laughs in Atlantic City, the Comedy Stop now sits in an all-new $3 million dollar location on the third floor in The Quarter entertainment and retail complex at Tropicana. The Comedy Stop Cafe & Cabaret still features the Best Comics, the Best Club & the Best Prices. Visit for more upcoming schedules and information.

Listen, bottom line is this. Bob Kephart is a pro and one of the best Comedy Club producers and owners in the world. Always has been..always will be…No Brag..Just Fact!

Bala Cynwyd, PA (August 15, 2011):

31195_392842253780_39393223780_3879238_3779810_n95.7 BEN-FM is proud to present BEN’s Bash With The Bangles on Saturday October 1, 2011 at the Theater of the Living Arts (The TLA) on South Street. The Bangles were one of the most popular female fronted bands of the 1980’s. Their hit songs include “Walk Like An Egyptian”, “Manic Monday”, “Eternal Flame” , “Hazy Shade of Winter”(Simon & Grafunkel song) and “In Your Room”. The band’s current lineup includes original members Susanna Hoffs(vocals and guitar), Vicki Peterson (vocals and guitar) and Debbi Peterson (drums).
Tickets for the concert go on sale this Friday at Noon via ticketmaster locations, the TLA box office as well as Members of the BEN-FM listener club, the BENefits Club, can access a special pre-sale that will take place this Thursday from 10am to 10pm. Tickets can be purchased for $22 in advance or for $25 at the TLA the evening of the show.
The Bangles are touring around the release of their first album in 7 years, SWEETHEART OF THE SUN which will be released on September 27. The album was recorded
by Matthew Sweet (Susanna’s frequent collaborator) at his home studio in the Hollywood Hills, with much of the overdubbing done at the home studios of Vicki and Susanna, and mixed by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco), SWEETHEART OF THE SUN reveals The Bangles at their equally beguiling extremes, as soaring folk-rock harmonies coexist with adrenalized rave-ups inspired by the band’s roots in Nuggets-era garage rock.
95.7 BEN-FM is owned by Greater Philadelphia Radio, Inc., a subsidiary of Greater Media, Inc., the parent company of 23 AM and FM radio stations in the Boston, Charlotte, Detroit, New Jersey and Philadelphia markets.

funnyA Sad Day for Lindsey Vonn

Today American Lindsey Vonn had to forfeit her gold medal won in the Downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The International Olympic Committee announced today that it has taken back the gold medal previously awarded to Vonn and has given it to U.S. President Barack Obama. Olympic officials said Obama deserved the medal more than Vonn because no one has gone Downhill faster than he has.

Survey Said!

50,000 men were asked what they liked most about receiving oral.
1% like the warmth,
2% liked the intimacy,
3% liked to watch it,
and 94% said they just liked the f**king peace and quiet!


Jesus vs. Satan

Jesus and Satan were having an on-going argument about who was better on the computer. They had been going at it for days and frankly, God was tired of hearing all of the bickering. Finally fed up, God said “THAT’S IT!! I’ve had enough. I’m going to set up a test that will run for two hours and from those results, I will judge who does the better job.” So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
They moused – they faxed – they e-mailed – they downloaded – they did spreadsheets – they created labels and graphs – they did every job known to man.
Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency, and Satan was faster than hell.
Just before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed, thunder rolled, rain poured, and of course, the power went off.
Satan stared at his blank computer screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld, and Jesus just sighed.
When the electricity came back on, and each of them re-started their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming “It’s gone! It’s all GONE!! I lost everything when the power went out!”
Meanwhile Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.
Satan observed this and became IRATE!
“Wait!” he screamed. “That’s not fair! He cheated! How come he has all of his work and I don’t have any?”
God just shrugged and said ………… “JESUS SAVES ….”

Sue’s Cruise

Sue was out in a hot air balloon when suddenly she realized that she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend Pete that I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”
Joe, the man in the boat, consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.
“I am,” replied Joe. “How did you know?”
“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information,
and I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”
Joe smiled and responded, “You must be an Obama-Democrat.”
“I am,” replied Sue. “How did you know?”
“Well,” said Joe, “you don’t know where you are — or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

Weird …

– Did you know that the words “race car” spelled backward still spell “race car”?
– Did you know that “eat” is the only word that if you take the 1st letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense “ate”?
– And have you noticed that if you rearrange the letters in “illegal immigrants” and add just a few more letters, it spells out: “Go home you free-loading, benefit-grabbing, kid-producing, violent, non-English speaking arseholes and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing, towel headed, bomb-making, goat-shagging, raggedy-arse bastards with you”?
How weird is that??? …..

A Duck Walks Into A Bar

Duck: You got any bread?
Bartender: No, I’m sorry, we don’t have any bread
– a few minutes later
Duck: You got any bread?
Bartender: Look, we don’t have any bread!
– a little while later
Duck: You got any bread:
Bartender: We don’t have any F**KING bread!!
– times goes on …
Duck: You got any bread?
Bartender: If you ask me one more time if I have any f**king bread, I’m gonna nail your f**king bill to this bar
Duck: You got any nails?
Bartender: NO!!
Duck: You got any bread?

Finally …

Yo gang – I can’t believe Labor Day is almost here! I’ve yet to make it to the shore, but I will. I keep promising people that “I’ll be there”, but I’ve yet to take them up on their offers. Time to reel in some chips!
I also can’t believe the closing of Whiskey Tango. The last thing the Northeast needs is the closing of yet another stage that supports live music. I’m really looking forward to the Grand Re-Opening in the fall! I’ll keep ya posted.
There’s still two more shows going on down at the Pennypack stage, and the audiences this year have been AMAZING!
Coming up:
8/31/11 – The British Invasion – A tribute to the Beatles and more!
9/14/11 – The Pennypack Concerts Season Finale featuring Simply the Best – A Tina Turner tribute. This show is AWESOME!!
PROPS to Steve, Glenn, Norm, Lonnie, Harry, Janet, Pennypack Bob, John our AWESOME “Unofficial / Official Mayfair Photographer”, Renee and the rest of the Rangers, and the entire crew at Pennypack who volunteer their time each and every week to bring you guys some of the BEST shows in the area, and for keeping live music alive. Thank You guys!!
Please come on down to one (or both) of these final shows and please bring your donations. These shows rely solely on the support of a few sponsors (PROPS to Paddy Whacks, Goodchilds, etc), as well as donations from YOU! Without donations, these shows WILL end! Support Local Music!
That’s it …
Have a GREAT Labor Day gang, and as always, keep send your jokes, pics, whathaveu and whatnot to
Have FUN!!
