There will be no shortage of laughs this summer in Atlantic City casinos, along with other nonmusical attractions. As always, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa leads the chuckle chase with a diverse slate of funny people, from Jerry Seinfeld and Howie Mandel to George Lopez, part-time Media resident Wanda Sykes, and Margaret Cho. Elsewhere in town, the offerings include Bill Maher at Caesars, Chris Tucker (Trump Taj Mahal), Dom Irrera and WIP overnight host Big Daddy Graham (Tropicana)

LISA LAMPANELLI is old enough (52, but who's counting?) to remember and respect Philadelphia as a Broadway tryout town. So when the chance came to test the waters here with her New York-bound (she hopes) theatrical production "Skinny Bitch: Not a Stand-Up Comedy Show," in the Kimmel Center's intimate Innovation Studio, she jumped. "It's not about selling a lot of tickets, filling a Radio City Music Hall or Carnegie Hall" - which she's done - "it's about developing the work," Lampanelli reflected, after her opening weekend of SRO shows here.

LUCY , BELOVED golden retriever of 93.3 WMMR DJ Pierre Robert - a pooch met and petted by rock stars that included Judas Priest , Bon Jovi and Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders - died Friday of multiple organ failure. She was 13 1/2. The dog had become a station mascot of sorts in recent years, Robert said last night. He began taking her to work when she began having orthopedic issues a few years ago. She had chiropractic, acupuncture and water-therapy treatments over the years and last week fell very ill, Robert said.
