About Rich Little
U.S. Presidents: John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, both George Bushes and Barack Obama…Rich Little has a voice for every administration. Infamous for his skewering of political figures, Little has charmed, amused, intrigued and gotten the best of politicians from here to his native Canada. A master mimic of more than 200 voices, Little continues to impress with regular stops around the United States and Canada.

In his early 20s, Little was discovered while working in the United States. His friend, singer Mel Torme, then on the musical team of CBS network’s “The Judy Garland Show,” asked him to make a tape. Instead of the usual impressions, Little did voices nobody did, including Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles and Dennis Weaver. Garland thought it was great, particularly his James Mason, and Little was signed to the show.

Little has appeared on TV variety shows starring Ed Sullivan, Jackie Gleason, Glen Campbell and Dean Martin, as well as on series such as “Laugh-In,” “The John Davidson Summer Show” and “The Julie Andrews Show.” Little also had his own variety show in the 70s and was the star of the TV show “KopyKats.” Little was a guest host early on for “The Tonight Show,” hosting 12 times. He quickly became a household name sitting in one of the “Hollywood Squares” and went on to do the “Muppet Show.”

Named “Comedy Star of the Year” by the American Guild of Variety Artists, Little was the perpetrator of nine comedy albums and three HBO comedy specials, as well as the Emmy Award winning specials “Rich Little’s Christmas Carol” with “W.C. Fields” as Scrooge, “Humphrey Bogart” as one of the ghosts and “Paul Lynde” as Bob Cratchit.

Little is currently starring in “Jimmy Stewart & Friends” at LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

Five Major Non-Profits Unite for Albertsons Sav-on’s CommUNITY Day of Sharing

Five Major Non-Profits Unite for Albertsons Sav-on’s CommUNITY Day of Sharing

Help Stuff a Truck on Saturday, October 20

Five of the largest non-profit organizations in Southern Nevada will join forces for an unprecedented valley wide donation drive event on Saturday, October 20, called Albertsons Sav-on’s CommUNITY Day of Sharing.

The inaugural Albertsons Sav-on’s CommUNITY Day of Sharing unites Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, Three Square Food Bank, United Way of Southern Nevada and Goodwill of Southern Nevada with the goal of impacting the lives of hundreds of thousands in our community who need help with shelter, food, employment or other basic needs.

“We know the good these organizations do in our community and we are proud to partner with each of them on a daily basis, be it donating food, money, supplies or space in our parking lots,” said Dan Sanders, Albertsons Southern California Division President, who oversees operations in Southern Nevada.  “We hope this demonstration of unity will inspire the community to share with those who may need a little extra help.”

Each non-profit will challenge the community to “stuff a truck” with gently used clothing, home goods, non-perishable food items, new hygiene products like toothpaste, toothbrushes and deodorant, and paper products like toilet paper and paper towels.


Donations will be collected at all Southern Nevada Albertsons locations from 9am to 4pm.

The Albertsons store at 4055 S. Durango Drive (Durango & Flamingo) will serve as the main event site from 11am to 3pm, featuring music, prizes, and a community BBQ.
