SPRINGFIELD, MASS. (August 6, 2019) – MGM Springfield and John Tobin Presents will bring comedic duo Kevin “KevOnStage” Fredericks and Anthony “DoBoy” Belcher Jr., best known together as Righteous and Ratchet, to the Roar! Comedy Series Sunday, Oct. 27 at 7 p.m.

Kevin is righteous, Anthony is ratchet, and together they’ve joined forces to tackle topics of pop culture and current events with humor—all while sharing real life experiences and advice.

Over the past 10 years, “KevOnStage” has gained notoriety from his internet videos and social media posts where he reaches on average 4.5 million+ people per week. As a calculated risktaker with deep roots in faith, he has created a family-friendly social media shift in the entertainment industry working as actor, on stage as a comedian, behind the scenes of digital content and as a brand ambassador for Marvel, ABC, NBC, Nissan, Universal, McDonald’s, FOX and more.

While he is known for his social media, “DoBoy” is best known for his recurring role on MTV and MTV2’s comedy series “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out.” Beyond his work with “Wild N’ Out,” DoBoy is part of Russell Simmons’ comedy platform, All Def Digital (ADD), and has appeared on Bounce TV’s “Family Time,” among other TV shows.
