The Venetian Las Vegas has announced Lipshtick — the Perfect Shade of Standup – a newly branded resident comedy series that marks the first time in the storied entertainment history of Las Vegas that the comedy stage will be taken exclusively by female performers. The new series will debut July 11 with appearances by daytime television personality Wendy Williams and will bring regular stand-up comedy performances to The Sands Showroom from an opening slate of 14 critically acclaimed comediennes.
The series was announced by Comedian Whitney Cummings, television personality and co-creator of the hit CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls, at a press conference at The Venetian Las Vegas. Cummings, who will debut at The Sands Showroom on Aug. 15, is part of a 2014 lineup that features today’s premiere, and up-and-coming female stand-ups, including Joy Behar, Jennifer Coolidge, Whitney Cummings, Susie Essman, Jen Kirkman – Comedian, Lisa Lampanelli, Natasha Leggero, Wendy Liebman, Loni Love, Heather Mcdonald, Caroline Rhea, Rita Rudner, Iliza Schlesinger, and The Wendy Williams Show
“While the industry has concentrated on male comedy acts, The Venetian has a long-standing history of featuring outstanding female comediennes,” said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. “Our success with comedic legends like Rita Rudner and Joan Rivers have proven that ‘girls rule’ when it comes to comedy. Further, we believe that female-driven comedy is now as popular as ever!”
The new series was designed to appeal to a target audience of couples, groups and bachelorette celebrants out for a uniquely “Vegas” good time. It also creates an entertainment-driven “destination” that focuses on female branding and style while setting The Venetian apart from competitors.
Artists are engaged to perform two to three shows over a weekend, on Friday and Saturday evenings. Once part of the LIPSHTICK family, most of the comediennes will be scheduled into a rotation to perform at The Venetian three to four times per year. In addition, more comediennes will be added at later dates.
“We’ve already created a buzz in the comedy community,” said Caparella. “Everybody wants to be part of this series.”
Tickets are on sale now. Shows will be held on Fridays at 10:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 7:30pm. Some performance dates will include a second Saturday night show at 10:00 p.m. Get your tickets now at www.venetian.com!
