Jerry Seinfeld, Janet Jackson and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler lead spring casino headliner lineup

The region’s casinos are preparing for a pretty star-studded spring, with a number of A-listers set to visit by the end of June. A full up-to-date calendar is below. (More shows will undoubtedly be announced as time rolls on), but here are some of the more notable bookings already in place:

“A Bronx Tale,” starring Chazz Palminteri (Ocean Casino Resort, April 1): Before it became a classic film, “A Bronx Tale” started life as an autobiographical, one-man show starring its creator, Palminteri. In the stage version, he plays all of the roles, with the result being a brilliant demonstration of the art of acting — as well as a different take on the fabulous, true-life story of his childhood under the mentorship of a Mafia boss.

Jerry Seinfeld (Borgata, April 22): While his eponymous, career-defining sitcom ended its run almost 25 years ago, Seinfeld continues to be standup-comedy royalty. And if past performances are any guide, you can expect a lot of new material.

Shane Gillis (Parx, April 29 and 30): Gillis was fired in 2019 from the cast of “Saturday Night Live” just days after his addition to the show was announced when racist and homophobic slurs he made on podcasts came to light. While many likely figured his career was finished, Gillis has obviously overcome his “canceling,” as his sold-out, two night stand appears to indicate.

Tom Jones (Borgata, May 20): The hip-swiveling ’60s pop star from Wales (known as Sir Tom Jones in the UK) is still going strong at 82.) Expect the show to feature tunes from his most recent (and 41st) studio album, “Surrounded By Time,” as well as such signature tunes as “It’s Not Unusual,” “What’s New Pussycat?” and “Delilah.”

Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa Event Center: April 22, Jerry Seinfeld; May 20, Tom Jones; June 20, Chelsea Handler.

Janet Jackson (Hard Rock, May 20): Jackson’s upcoming “Together Again” tour coincides with the 50th anniversary of her show-business career. It’s her first road trip in four years, and the presentation should be quite elaborate.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler (Hard Rock, June 10 and 11): By any measure, this is the season’s coolest engagement, as it offers the chance to see two of the funniest and most successful women in contemporary entertainment in a live setting. Making it all the more special is that Atlantic City is one of four stops Fey and Poehler will make on their “Restless Leg” tour.
