Comedian Brad Williams to perform two shows at Red Rock Resort

Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 and Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019. Doors at 7 p.m.

Tickets on sale Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 at 10 a.m.

 

Comedian Brad Williams is returning to Las Vegas in 2019 for two performances at Rocks Lounge inside Red Rock Resort on Friday, Feb. 1, 2018 and Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019. Tickets are $35 plus tax and applicable fees and go on sale Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 at 10 a.m.

 

Pound for pound, Williams is the funniest comedian in the country right now, and has become one of the most in-demand comedians working today. A California native, Williams started doing stand-up comedy as a teenager and has been touring successfully ever since, routinely selling out shows all over the country and the world.

 

Williams has parlayed that success into a multitude of stand-up television experiences, including LIVE AT GOTHAM, THE TONIGHT SHOW, Dave Attell’s COMEDY UNDERGROUND, and JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE. His first one-hour special, FUN SIZE, was the highest rated on Showtime, and a year later, he followed that up with his second special, DADDY ISSUES, which was more successful than the first and prompted THE NEW YORK TIMES to write “No one is doing it [stand-up comedy] more hilariously than Brad Williams.” His third special in three years was an uproarious one, hosting some of the edgiest comedians in the country from the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. Most recently, Williams’ new half-hour special for Netflix’s stand-up comedy showcase THE DEGENERATES premiered in October 2018.

 

Also an accomplished actor, Williams has appeared on numerous TV shows and feature films, including FX’s LEGIT, SAM AND CAT, MIND OF MENCIA, PITBOSS, a recurring role on the Hulu original show DEADBEAT, and memorable roles in a plethora of movies, including LITTLE EVIL, which was produced by Scott Stuber (TED), as well as the Netflix original Christopher Guest film, MASCOTS.

 

In addition to stand-up and acting, Williams has become a dynamic on-air personality as well. His podcast with Adam Ray, ABOUT LAST NIGHT, is a mainstay on the iTunes charts. He is also a regular contributor on KROQ’s KEVIN AND BEAN SHOW in Los Angeles, as well as Adam Carolla’s podcast, THE ADAM CAROLLA SHOW.

 

Williams’ ability to make humorous and inspiring observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are consistently winning over audiences and proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings. His live performances are always high energy and frequently feature full standing ovations from those in attendance, which prompted the late Robin Williams to call him “Prozac with a head.”

 

Tickets for Brad Williams are $35 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission and go on sale Friday, Dec. 7, 2018 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult. All tickets go on sale Friday, December 7 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at any Station Casinos Reward Center and The Fiestas, by logging onto www.stationcasinoslive.com or through Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com.

Dierks Bentley Launches THE MOUNTAIN w/ Television & Fan Events

DIERKS BENTLEY’S “TIMELESS” NEW ALBUM THE MOUNTAINHITS STREETS THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 8AMID TELEVISION PERFORMANCES AND FAN PREVIEW EVENTS
This Week’s National TV Performances Include CMT Music Awards,
TODAY
and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Tune-In to Sirius XM to Hear Bentley Play Front to Back the Album
Critics Have Already Dubbed “The Best Representation of All His Skills” (Associated Press)
Live From The Ryman Auditorium

Ahead of the release of THE MOUNTAIN this Friday (6/08), award-winning entertainer Dierks Bentley will continue to unveil new music with performances off the album on national television and first-listen fan events. Tonight, Bentley will debut “Burning Man” (featuring Brothers Osborne) that critics have called a “hard-charging rocker” and his “most affecting song” (Rolling Stone) on the CMT Music Awards (6/06 at 7P CT on CMT). For the eve of his ninth studio album’s release, Bentley will host a rare one-night-only show (6/07) at the historic Ryman Auditorium showcasing all thirteen tracks, while fans across the country will be able to tune-in on SiriusXM The Highway (Channel 56).

This weekend, Bentley will continue on his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR with an extra stop to meet fans at Vinyl Renaissance (7932 Santa Fe Dr Overland Park, KS 66204) before his stadium set on Sunday for CMA Music Festival. Bentley will also perform on TODAY’s Summer Concert Series (6/12 at 7:00A ET/CT on NBC) and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (6/13 at 10:35P CT on NBC). Exclusive fan performances also continue with an iHeartCountry Album Release Party  (6/12 at 9P CT via iHeartCountry’s YouTube) and at Pandora’s Up Close concert experience, both in NYC.

As THE MOUNTAIN “demonstrates his prowess and melds Bentley’s inviting voice with elements of bluegrass” (Kansas City Star), early reviews have critics clinging to the “earthen and majestic” (Entertainment Weekly) album and its “textures of mandolin, banjo, fiddle and flatpicked guitar,” (NPR).

“The best representation of all his skills, from being a true fan of acoustic instruments like the mandolin and banjo, to raising a glass to his partying crowds and delivering arena-sized anthems.” – Associated Press

“Firm footed reflection on home, self and purpose in middle adulthood. Bentley has crafted a Country gem here.” – Asbury Park Press

“The result is a project informed by the weight of 2017 but filled with gratitude for life and what lies ahead. Sonically, it’s a compelling marriage of contemporary and bluegrass sounds.” – The Tennessean

“Putting together 13 relentlessly happy, hopeful songs runs the risk of coming across as pollyannish. But in Bentley’s songwriting and voice, it is an outlook that is born of self awareness, contentment and connection.” – Lexington Herald Leader

Bentley has built a reputation as both a forever-young drifter and a dedicated family man, put in millions of miles on headlining tours and taken the fearless stylistic detours of a truly authentic artist. He continues that journey with his highly anticipated ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville). Reaching a new creative high, Bentley co-wrote 10 of the 13 new tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, and range in style from textured rock to acoustic folk, feeling both rooted and expansive at the same time. The Arizona native has scored 17 No. Ones and 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. Bentley has amassed more than one billion digital streams, countless additional nominations from the ACM, CMA and Billboard Music Awards. Bentley continues to bring an “energy-packed atmosphere” (Washington Post) to venues and amphitheaters throughout the country on his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR.

Deadpan Comic Steven Wright Returns to Treasure Island April 13

Deadpan comic Steven Wright will headline the Treasure Island Theatre Apr. 13 at 9 p.m.

Renowned for his distinctive stand-up comedy, incorporating irony, philosophy, nonsense and delightful lethargic monotone delivery, Wright got his big break on “The Tonight Show” in 1982.  Johnny Carson enjoyed the performance so much that he invited Wright to appear again the following Thursday, a rarity on “The Tonight Show.”  His back-to-back appearances helped put his fledgling career into high gear.  The comic soon found himself performing on “Saturday Night Live,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” and numerous trips back to “The Tonight Show.”

Wright expanded his career to include comedy albums, films and television appearances. Both his 1985 debut album, “I Have A Pony,” and 2007 follow up, “I Still Have A Pony,” earned Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album.  In 1985, Steven starred in his landmark first HBO Special “A Steven Wright Special,” which he followed with “Wicker Chairs and Gravity” in 1990. His third one-hour special, “When The Leaves Blow Away,” premiered on Comedy Central in 2006.

The offbeat comic’s film appearances include “Desperately Seeking Susan,” Mike Meyers’ “So I Married An Axe Murderer,” Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers,” and Nora Ephron’s “Mixed Nuts.” Wright was the voice of the DJ, K-Billy in “Reservoir Dogs,” played a Mountie in “Canadian Bacon,” opposite the late John Candy and had a supporting role in Dave Chappelle’s “Half-Baked.” He won an Academy Award for Best Short Film for “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” which he also starred in and co-wrote. Most recently Wright lent his inimitable voice to the upcoming animated film “The Emoji Movie” alongside TJ Miller, James Corden and Patrick Stewart.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Wright was nominated for an Emmy Award as a producer of the hit FX series, “Louie.” He also guest starred in two episodes of Louie in 2011 and 2015 and can be seen in Louis CK’s critically acclaimed web series “Horace and Pete.”

Tickets are available starting at $50.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.

JIMMY FALLON BRINGS THE FUN: ‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ STAR SET TO HOST ‘74TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE® AWARDS’

JIMMY FALLON BRINGS THE FUN:
‘THE TONIGHT SHOW’ STAR SET TO HOST
‘74TH ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE® AWARDS’

The Emmy- and Grammy-Winning Star of America’s #1 Late-Night Talk Show Takes Center Stage as NBC Kicks Off the 2017 Award Season Jan. 8 From the Beverly Hilton

Jimmy Fallon, America’s #1 late-night talk show entertainer, has been named host of the “74th Annual Golden Globe Awards,” set to air on NBC live coast-to-coast from the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 from 8-11 p.m. ET (5-8 p.m. PT).

The Emmy- and Grammy Award-winning Fallon, who’s hosted “The Tonight Show” since February 2014 and has since guided the classic franchise to dominance in every key ratings category, previously won rave reviews for his performance as host of the 2010 Primetime Emmy Awards. “The Tonight Show” is currently nominated for two Emmys this year, including Outstanding Variety Series Talk.

January’s three-hour Golden Globes telecast will serve as the official kick-off to the 2017 awards season.

“We’re thrilled to announce Jimmy as host of ‘The 74th Annual Golden Globes,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt. “This is the most spontaneous and uninhibited award show on television, and Jimmy’s playful, disarming comedic brilliance makes him the ideal host to enhance and elevate the sense of fun and irreverence that’s made the Golden Globes one of the premier events of the entire broadcast year.”

“Jimmy Fallon is an exceptionally talented and dynamic entertainer and we couldn’t be more excited that he’ll be hosting the 2017 Golden Globes,” said Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. “His charm, wit and incredible spontaneity will play exceedingly well both to everyone at the show as well as the millions watching at home from around the world.”

“Jimmy Fallon’s brand of comedy will continue the tradition of cutting-edge excitement viewers have come to expect from the host of the Golden Globes,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions.

The 2016 telecast of the Golden Globes averaged a 5.5 rating, 16 share in adults 18-49 and 18.5 million viewers overall in “live plus same day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #1 entertainment telecast on the broadcast networks for the week of Jan. 4-10 in the key 18-49 demographic. Despite facing a high-rated NFL playoff overrun, the 2016 Globes telecast retained 95% of the prior year’s 18-49 rating and 96% of the year-earlier total-viewer result. Over the last four years, the Globes has delivered the event’s four most-watched telecasts since 2007.

Additionally, the 2016 telecast saw an upward trend in digital and social media statistics. On Twitter, beginning three hours before the live show and through 10 minutes after it ended, 4.4 million Golden Globe Awards-related tweets were sent globally, resulting in a total of 1.2 billion views. On Facebook, more than 9 million users globally participated in a total of 19 million interactions on show day, which included posts, comments and likes.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” remains the dominant force in late night, leading all other competitors in every key measure — adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers. In fact, “The Tonight Show” has won 46 of 46 weeks to date versus the competition in adults 18-49 and the last 45 in a row in total viewers.

With “The Tonight Show,” Fallon has expanded the boundaries of late night to play to his strengths and has been headlining with hilarity ever since. The #1 show in late night always offers more laughs and fun, with everyone being invited to the party. Each night viewers are in store for an hour full of unexpected, innovative comedy with celebrity guests and creative music-oriented bits. Due to Fallon’s massive popularity and creative prowess, “The Tonight Show’s” groundbreaking videos often quickly become viral sensations. With 11 million subscribed and more than 5.6 billion video views, “The Tonight Show” is the most subscribed and viewed late-night channel on YouTube, and also ranks #1 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. With Fallon’s truly welcoming style and on-point pop culture awareness, it’s easy to see why fans love to end their day with “The Tonight Show.”

Fallon began his TV career with “Saturday Night Live” in 1998 and spent six successful years on the show. In 2009, he returned to NBC to host “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” a show that consistently garnered attention for its viral videos, celebrity games and A-list guests.

Nominations for the Golden Globes will be announced Monday, Dec. 12. Winners are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 236 countries and territories worldwide and are one of the few awards ceremonies to include both motion picture and television achievements.

Dynamic Comedian Jo Koy Returns to Treasure Island March 20

treasure island
Las Vegas’ hometown comedian Jo Koy makes his return to the Treasure Island Theatre March 20 at 9 p.m.  Guests must be 18 or older to attend.

From renting out the historic Huntridge Theater to filling the showroom at Treasure Island, Koy has entertained audiences in Las Vegas and beyond for more than twenty years with impressions and stories, uproariously focused around his family, especially his mother and son.

After dropping out of UNLV to pursue stand-up comedy, Koy pounded the pavement on the strip and off, booking gigs from coffee shop open mic nights to “Catch a Rising Star.”  He broke wide in 2005, his persistence rewarded with a star-making turn on BET’s “Comic View.”  His performance later that year on “The Tonight Show” became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation on that program.

Koy has since returned several times to “The Tonight Show” and appeared on various VH1 specials, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.”  He has previously toured with other comedians, including Jon Lovitz, Chelsea Handler and Carlos Mencia, and on USO and Def Jam Comedy Tours.

He also voices several caricatures on “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast including a Japanese competitive food eater, a P.F. Chang’s host and Bung Lu Soo, an aspiring singer. A new episode of Koy’s podcast “The Michael Yo and Jo Koy Show” is available on iTunes every Tuesday.

Inspired by his son, Koy’s first Comedy Central special “Don’t Make Him Angry,” aired in January 2009. A highly anticipated second Comedy Central special “Lights Out” followed in October 2012, and is now available on DVD. He was also a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately,” appearing on more than 100 episodes from 2009 through the finale last year.

Tickets are available starting at $54.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.

Deadpan Comic Steven Wright Returns to The Orleans Showroom November 14 and 15

Deadpan Comic Steven Wright Returns to The Orleans Showroom November 14 and 15

Academy Award winner Steven Wright returns to The Orleans Showroom Novmeber 14 and 15, with his trademark wit, absurdist one-liners, monotone voice and deadpan delivery.

Wright was discovered by an executive producer for “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” while performing at Ding Ho’s Comedy Club and Chinese Restaurant in Cambridge, Mass. His big break came when he was booked on the show shortly after.  Following his performance, Wright was invited to return to the show less than one week later for a rare back-to-back appearance. His innovative idiosyncrasies, lethargic delivery and nearly catatonic demeanor caught the comedy world’s attention, and he later appeared on “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night with David Letterman.” As his fame grew, he starred in two HBO specials — “A Steven Wright Special,” which went on to become one of HBO’s longest-running and most requested comedy specials, and “Wicker Chairs and Gravity.”

In 1985, Wright received a Grammy nomination for his debut album, “I Have a Pony.” Twenty-two years later, he earned a second Grammy nomination for its sequel, “I Still Have a Pony.” Following his second nomination, he was the first inductee into The Boston Comedy Hall of Fame.

In 1989, he received an Academy Award for Best Short Film for co-writing the satiric “The Appointments of Dennis Jennings,” in which he co-starred with Rowan Atkinson. Wright’s other film and television credits include “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” “Desperately Seeking Susan,” “Half-Baked,” “The Swan Princess” and “Resevoir Dogs.”

In 2011, Wright voiced the character Danny on an episode of the animated series, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” and guest starred on the hit series “Louie” alongside comedian Louis CK.

Showtime each evening is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $34.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075, or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.

Comedian George Wallace Brings Laughs and Maibock to Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas

Maibock returns on Friday, April 26

It’s that time of year, when flowers bloom and Maibock barrels get tapped. Headliner George Wallace taps the ceremonial keg of Munich’s oldest beer, Maibock brew, on Friday, April 26 at 7 p.m. at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Pleasing the palate of beer drinkers since 1614, the brew holds an alcohol content of approximately 7.2 percent by volume.

Born in Atlanta, Wallace knew he wanted to be a comedian at the young age of 6. After graduating college, Wallace pursued stand up and within a week he was offered a writing job at “The Red Foxx Show.” He quickly gained popularity and in 1995 won an American Comedy Award for Best Stand-Up Comedian. Wallace has been on numerous TV shows and films including “Seinfeld,” “The Tonight Show,” “Batman Forever” and “Ladykillers.” The innovating comedian has been headlining at The Flamingo for more than eight years.

By tradition, the first barrel of Maibock is tapped at the Hofbräuhaus in the last week of April. Creamy and aromatic in flavor, Hofbräu Maibock sets the standard for all other bock beers and boasts the longest pedigree of all Munich’s bocks. Along with the keg tapping, the night will be filled with Jägermeister spankings and traditional stein-holding contests where competitors have their chance to prove they have what it takes to hold out the one-liter filled stein the longest.
