Why this event?

Simply put, Finnegan’s Wake is a really great time. This highly successful show has wowed audiences in Greater Boston and New Jersey for over 17 years. At Atlantic City’s Showboat Casino alone, over 25,000 mourners came to pay their respects to the dearly departed over a two-year run.  

We offer this as a complete event package, leaving you and your guests free to fully enjoy the experience. And that experience includes tender ballads, rowdy reels, raucous comedy and a collection of outrageous characters. There’s also plenty of fun audience participation – prepare your own eulogies beforehand, as you and your guests may be called on to honor the dearly departed with a joke, song or dance.

This timeless original production continues to be a strong audience favorite, year after year. It provides a wonderful opportunity to entertain and to be entertained. You’ll laugh till you cry at Finnegan’s Wake. But that’s as it should be – after all, this is a celebration of life, not death.
