Gary Owen will appear at Harrah’s on Friday.


HARRAH’S // 9 P.M. FRIDAY, APRIL 19; $28, $38, $48

WHAT TO EXPECT: Gary Owen’s rise to the top of the comedy world has been an unusual one. For six years he served in the US Navy before turning his sights on the stage. His first taste of fame came through a 1997 appearance on BET’s standup comedy showcase “Comic View,” which helped earn him a strong following in the African American community. In 2011 Ebony magazine voted him “Black America’s Favorite White Comic.” On Friday crowds can expect big laughs and a packed house at Harrah’s.;
