During the Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention (NIGA), the largest gathering of tribal leaders and casino executives in the country, Raving and their event sponsors return with the 4th Annual Native Strong Comedy Slam. The event takes place Thursday, April 19 at 9:00 p.m., at the Smith Center in Las Vegas.

The show will consist of three Native American comics, Ernie Tsosie, headliner Howie Miller and Larry Omaha. The evening benefits the Notah Begay III Foundation and its work addressing the health and fitness of Native American youth. The event is an official event during the Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Exposition and is endorsed by Chairman Ernie Stevens, Jr. and the National Indian Gaming Association. Notah Begay III will be attending the Comedy Slam this year.

“We can’t be more delighted to be hosting this event at the nationally-renowned Smith Center," said Deana Scott, Raving CEO. "A plus of this new venue is that attendees and sponsors can choose from a variety of seating options with tables on the floor and on the balcony, perfect for groups of four, six or eight, as well as individual tickets. We’re looking forward to a sold-out event once again.”

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. for cocktails in the outdoor courtyard. Attendees can enjoy conversations with the comics and over 200 of tribal gaming’s industry leaders and supporters. The show begins at 9:00 p.m. inside Myron’s Cabaret Jazz room.

All three comics will be promoting the event at the Raving Consulting booth (#927) on the NIGA tradeshow floor on Thursday, April 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Comedy Slam ticket holders are invited to an outdoor cocktail reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. which precedes the Comedy Slam.
