Comic plans to go back on tour
Could you tell me whatever happened to comedian Charlie Prose?
—Margeret T., Connecticut
Prose, 59, says he’s busier than ever and has plenty of new material thanks to his 1-year-old granddaughter, Ella Marie. He’s built a huge fan base by giving videos to tour bus drivers, who play them for passengers on the rides to and from casinos and resorts. “I’ve not been touring as much because I’ve been acting, doing some plays,” he says. But Prose says his 15-year-old Christmas show at Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City, N.J. (pop. 40,517), is the city’s longest running holiday show. He plans to tour next year and regularly plays casinos in Las Vegas and Laughlin, Nev. (pop. 7,076), as well as Atlantic City. He and his wife have two adult daughters and live outside Atlantic City.
