Gorga and Catania have been promoting the comedy show that they said was scheduled at Garrett's club in the MGM Grand District on Sunday — but the Everybody Loves Raymond star said their set doesn't exist.

According to the flyer, Gorga was supposed to headline the stand-up show. Comedian Jaclyn Marfuggi is also listed on the promo, along with Garrett as the host and Catania as a special guest.

He also tagged Catch, a comedy club in New Jersey, which has been actively promoting the "non-existent" Vegas show.

"So @catchnewjersey not sure how you put this show together but it wasn’t from us. I am not on Facebook. Or X. The Facebook BG or BGCC is an impostor collecting ticket funds for a non-existent show," Garrett stated.

RadarOnline.com has reached out for comment.

While the comedy show might not be a go, Gorga and Catania are pretty booked all weekend with BravoCon activities.

The boys are set to perform their own version of Magic Mike on Friday with their costar, Joe Benigno — and this one is officially on the BravoCon schedule, so it's real.
