Jamie Foxx: 
Live Radio, Celebrity Party


When Jamie Foxx comes to Atlantic City, he doesn’t just settle for doing his gig, which this year is hosting his Foxxhole Comedy Jam Thursday and Friday, July 5-6, at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater. As he noted when he headlined in Atlantic City last year, “It’s going to be party time the minute we fly off to get there. We are going to be partying the whole time. It’s July 4th; we have to bring that edge.” This time around Foxx is presenting his Sirius XM Foxxhole Radio broadcast live in Caesars Palladium Ballroom, and a Celebrity All White Gala at the Pool After Dark at Harrah’s. The Foxxhole broadcasts take place Thursday, July 5, 3-5pm with Billy Sorrells, Luenell, Gary Owen and Bill Bellamy and Friday, July 6, 11am–1pm with the Dr. Mitch Show, 2–2:30pm, with Bossip, and 3–5pm, Foxxhole Radio with Jamie Foxx, Lavell Crawford and Donell Rawlings. These broadcasts are free and open to the public. Fans can go to the Palladium Ballroom and check out the party. After his 8:30pm performance as host of the Foxxhole Comedy Show at Caesars, Foxx will travel over to Harrah’s Pool After Dark to host the Celebrity All-White Gala (doors open at 10pm), featuring music by Funkmaster Flex of Hot 97 radio in New York City and the hit MTV show Funk Flex Full Throttle, joined by Castl and Manik. Tickets for the party are $30. — Lori Hoffman


Movies at Dante Hall


The Downbeach Film Festival and The Richard Stockton College’s Dante Hall Theater are teaming up to present “Movies at Dante,” a monthly film series. Each month, the festival and the theater will screen two features tied to a particular theme. In addition, experts will provide insight into the movies and hold Q&A sessions. Films will be shown at 6 and 8pm. Tickets are $5 a movie or $8 for both and will be available at the door and through ticketleap.com/search Dante. The series kicks off Saturday, July 14, with an initial theme of surf films. In addition to the acclaimed surfing documentary Bustin’ Down the Door, films under consideration include Big Wednesday, Dark Fall and A Pleasant Surprise. August 11 will feature a mini-John Hughes festival. The Sept. 8 theme expects to focus on school. There will be a hiatus in October for the fifth annual Atlantic City Cinefest, Oct. 12 to 14. The series resumes Nov. 3 and Dec. 8. The series is also partnering with area restaurants to offer discounts for moviegoers. For the month of July, Tun Tavern will offer moviegoers half-price appetizers, $1 off their handcrafted beers, $1 off all wine by the glass and $1 off cocktails. Just show your ticket stub to your server. — LH


 

T-Fox’s ‘House’ 


Born a showman and recognized as one of Las Vegas’ biggest talents in recent years, T-Fox, who performs his “House Party” show at Resorts through July 12 (see p. 65 for dates and times), is a man of many talents. The vivacious singer can swing like Sinatra, do a Sammy Davis Jr. impression and then sing the late Michael Jackson’s “You Are Not Alone” — with glitter glove, red jacket, black hat et al — on the turn of a dime. “House Party,” also includes T-Fox’s immensely talented sister, who sings a couple of songs during the approximately one-hour-show, including a stunning tribute to Whitney Houston (“I Will Always Love You”). T-Fox’s “House” also includes a few sexy dancers and dance routines, light-hearted humor and a throwback Vegas vibe with video clips showing images of the desert casino town and its entertainment past. By the time Kool & The Gang’s “Celebration” is sung at the show’s end, T-Fox leads the crowd in a conga line throughout the Superstar Theater before breaking into Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long,” followed by a tribute to America and Ray Charles.
