The COVID-19 pandemic made me realize how much love live entertainment. There's nothing like seeing your favorite band or comedian live in the flesh, and making lasting memories with friends and family in the process.

Now finally, it looks like we're moving another step closer to "normalcy" when to comes to live shows and entertainment in Atlantic City.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City has announced that headline entertainment will return to Hard Rock Live at the Etess Arena with comedians Bob Saget, Vic Dibitetto, and Andrew Santino all scheduled to perform over the next few months.

Former Full House and Fuller House star Bob Saget will appear on Saturday, April 24th at 7 PM and 10 PM. If you remember, Saget was also the host of America's Funniest Videos for years.

This is awesome news for those who need a good laugh or a fun night out. After the year we've had, I'm sure that's pretty much everyone in South Jersey.

Safety protocols will be firmly in place including temperature checks for all guests, decreased venue capacity, mandated facial covering, social distancing and more.
