Kendra Wilkinson and Jai Rodriguez Extend Performances in Smash-Hit Comedy “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” through January 2, 2018

 


Meeting popular demand, Kendra Wilkinson and Jai Rodriguez have signed on to continue headlining The Strip’s newest smash-hit comedy, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” at Paris Las Vegas through January 2, 2018. Hailed by Las Vegas Review-Journal as “a hilarious and wild show,” this laugh-out-loud production encourages its audience to put these insider tips into action during the performance, from massaging the pecs of the male model on stage all the way to practicing the perfect stroke on their own rolled-up programs. An unforgettably naughty night of sex, romance, and self-discovery, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is New York City’s longest-running Off-Broadway show and made its debut at Paris Las Vegas in May 2017.

“Being a part of ‘Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man’ has been life-changing,” said Wilkinson, whose starring role has been prominently featured on this season of WE tv’s hit series, “Kendra on Top.” “I love the thrill of performing in a live show like this, and one of my favorite things has been getting to meet so many fans night after night. So, now that I’m continuing through the end of the year, hop on a flight to Vegas and come say ‘Hello!’

In the sex-affirmative, coming-of-age show, Wilkinson stars as Robyn, the bookish and demure host of a university authors forum. Featured author Dan Anderson, played by Rodriguez, brings Robyn out of her professorial shell by encouraging her and audience members to embrace their naughtiest instincts with the help of Stefan, her hunky stage assistant.

The 75-minute production combines comedy, charisma, and a lot of sass to create a memorable evening perfect for everyone from couples looking to spice up their routines to groups interested in a girls’ – or guys’ – night out. Performing seven shows a week in an intimate theater just off the casino floor, the highly interactive show draws upon audience participation to demonstrate many of the most outrageous and hilarious techniques featured.

“I’m thrilled to be spreading the ‘Sex Tips’ love through the new year,” said Rodriguez. “People walk into the show room not knowing what to expect and it’s incredible to give them their happy ending night after night. I’d say this is ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Girl’ but ‘Sex Tips’ is for everyone.”

A co-production of Adam Steck’s SPI Entertainment with Matt Murphy and Shawn Nightingale, “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is an interactive engagement that takes the motto “practice makes perfect” to a whole new level. As the ultimate adults-only party, the show leaves audiences with intimate bedroom insight that they can take home as the ultimate Vegas souvenir.

“Kendra and Jai have an amazing chemistry that comes to life on stage nightly,” said Murphy. “No doubt we’re a hit because of their brilliant comedic instincts, and I’m thrilled that now audiences will get to see them in the show for the rest of the year.”

“I couldn’t be prouder of the show’s success in Las Vegas,” said Steck. “It’s the perfect night out, which the enthusiasm of the crowd makes clear night after night. Kendra and Jai are the perfect fit for a show like this and have made ‘Sex Tips’ Vegas’ must-see show.”

“Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” performs nightly (dark Wednesdays) at 7 p.m. with additional 11 p.m. shows Saturday nights. Tickets for shows through January 2, 2018 are now on sale and start at $39 (plus taxes and fees). A VIP ticket upgrade is available and includes a meet-and-greet and souvenir photo with the stars.

Puppet Up!

The Irreverent and Unpredictable Comedy Show ‘Puppet Up! – Uncensored’ Will Debut Spring 2016 as Newest Resident Show at The
Venetian Las Vegas

Created by Brian Henson and long-time comedy staple Patrick Bristow, Puppet Up! – Uncensored is an innovative combination of outlandish improv and world-class Henson Puppeteers

After performing to sold-out crowds throughout the country, the original and unruly comedy production “Puppet Up! – Uncensored” will debut at its new home this spring at the Sands Showroom located inside The Venetian® Las Vegas. Created by award-winning director, producer, and writer Brian Henson and actor, director, and improvisational guru Patrick Bristow (“Ellen,” “Seinfeld,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”), the newest entertainment residency to hit The Strip will be a completely unique experience, expertly combining dynamic and spontaneous off-the-cuff comedy and outrageous scripted story lines with the unmatched talent and creativity of Henson puppeteers.

 

“Going back to the earliest appearances on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ ‘The Tonight Show’ and many others, the Henson style of puppetry has always involved improvisation,” said Creator and Producer, Brian Henson, “It was quite often true that the funniest moments on set happened after the director yelled ‘cut,’ which is one of the reasons I was inspired to create the show.”
 

Unpredictable and irreverent, this laugh-out-loud production is never the same show twice. With six expert puppeteers utilizing more than 60 different puppets, all working together to bring to life twisted scenes and songs on the fly, the crowd prompts the improvised narrative unfolding on stage. Audiences are able and encouraged to interact with the show, shaping the storyline nightly while adding energy and humor, rather than simply watching.

 
The production’s originality extends beyond the content of each performance into how the show is seen by each audience member. Delivering two-shows-in-one, audiences will view the hilarious action projected live on large screens flanking the stage while simultaneously peeking behind the curtain to witness the iconic Henson style. The puppeteers race around below, revealing their unparalleled artistry and distinctive craft. Live musical accompaniment will punctuate the performance as Patrick Bristow acts as host, crafting the chaos on a nightly basis.  In addition, the masterful “Puppet Up!” puppeteers will also treat the theatre to resurrected classics and instantly-recognizable pieces originally created by Jim Henson, Jane Henson, and Frank Oz that haven’t been seen by live audiences in decades.
 
“We are incredibly excited to bring this dynamic and hilarious show to Las Vegas audiences,” said Vincent Marini, creative director and executive producer for BASE Entertainment. “The combination of artistry and comedy on display in Puppet Up! – Uncensored is unlike anything that has ever played on the Las Vegas Strip. It has been a truly incredible experience working with the immensely talented artists at the Henson Company to produce this no holds barred, tour de force comedy at one of Las Vegas’s most iconic resorts.”
 
‘Puppet Up! – Uncensored’ was developed by Henson Alternative Productions, an arm of the Jim Henson Company. The company’s previous credits include “Tinseltown” for the Logo Television Network and the upcoming feature film “Happytime Murders”, currently in development. The resident show debuting this spring, which will include added elements specifically designed for Las Vegas, is being produced by BASE Entertainment and co-produced by SPI Entertainment.
 
The show is intended for audiences 16+. For more information about ‘Puppet Up! – Uncensored’ please visit www.puppetup.com.

The longest-running headliner in Las Vegas, Frank Marino, celebrated New Year’s Eve by taking in Britney Spears’ new show, Piece of Me in The Axis at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

The Queen of the Strip and the pop princess had the chance to meet at the show, where Marino, in a playful nod to her new single, teased, “You better work bitch,” to which Spears played along and joked, “You better return to work, bitch.” Marino has been on hiatus, recovering from surgery, since December.

Marino welcomed the pop princess to Las Vegas with open arms but reminded her, he’s still the queen.
