We’re holding a no-limit laugh fest, and whether you’re a poker player or not, you’ll want to buy-in as our lineup of celebrity jokers get set to go wild! We’ve upped the ante with four (yes, four) big-bet, hysterical comedians hitting the stage in the next few weeks. It’s dealer’s choice as to which show you pick but one thing is a sure bet, everyone who has a seat at this table will hit it big with hoots, howls, cackles and the big ace—side-splitting belly laughs.
Perhaps the wildest joker in our deck is Fortune Feimster, with her March 10 show at 7 p.m. already sold out and her 9:30 p.m. show selling quickly. This busy comedian, writer and actor is “running good” and is seemingly everywhere right now, from radio to the big and small screens and on the comedy circuit. Her first Netflix comedy special, Sweet & Salty, was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Comedy Special. Fortune gained fame on the hit show Chelsea Lately and has appeared in numerous films and TV shows like The Mindy Project.
We’ll sweeten the pot when Demetri Martin stops in on his national I Feel Funny Tour on March 26. Although the 7 p.m. show is sold out, you can still catch him at 9:30 pm. Demetri’s bankroll as a standup comedian, writer and director is hefty. Demetri has released three standup comedy albums and four standup comedy specials, including his latest for Netflix, The Overthinker. He created and starred in his own television series for Comedy Central and two of his books are New York Times Bestsellers.
The cards are getting hot and we’re doubling down on April 2 at 7:30 p.m. with a man whose name is synonymous with comedy—George Lopez. It’s no bluff, this icon of comedy has been in the game for nearly three decades. To his credit, George has received numerous Best Comedy Album Grammy® nominations. His groundbreaking hit sitcom The George Lopez Show ran for six seasons and his autobiography, Why You Crying, reached the top 20 of The New York Times Bestsellers List.
And finally, we’ll see your bet and raise you once more as the grand kicker herself Rita Rudner brings this season’s wild joker run to a close on April 9 at 7:30 p.m. Over the course of a fourteen-year run and 2,000 plus performances, Rita’s show has become the longest-running solo comedy show in the history of Las Vegas. In a town synonymous with gambling, the biggest winner by far is Rita, considering she has been named Las Vegas’ “Comedian Of The Year” nine years in a row.
