ACJokes
ACJOKES.COM is a hand picked team of some of the East Coast’s best comedians and producers, including Ray Vazquez, Mike Merk, Zach Pickert, and Buda the Comedian, pulled together by 20-year comedy veteran Matt Bridgestone. Their combined experience delivers innovative street smarts and a guerilla marketing style that has made ACJOKES.COM a unique entity in the city. ACJOKES.COM was formed when the troupe decided they wanted to really invest in Atlantic City, even during the offseason when everyone told them they wouldn’t make it. Not only did they survive, but they thrived to the point of producing 10+ shows per week throughout Atlantic City, in the Playground Pier, Showboat, and Anthem Lounge at Tropicana.

Built between 1929 and 1932 by the Midmer-Losh Organ Company of Merrick, Long Island, N.Y., the Boardwalk Hall Pipe Organ was designed by Atlantic County State Senator, and noted organ architect Emerson L.

Get a group together to tour this magnificent machine. 
  
A “Behind the Scenes” tour is offered every Wednesday at 10:00 a.m.  This in-depth 2 hour tour leads guests through several sections of the organ which are normally closed to the public and gives an extremely detailed look at the mechanism of the instrument, its history and the current restoration project.  This tour does involve an extensive amount of walking and stair climbing.  An alternate tour path is available for persons with limited mobility.
The tour is followed by a 1/2 hour concert.

All tours are free and open to the public and no reservations are necessary.   Entrance to the building is through the front lobby off the boardwalk.
