“My jokes aren’t really jokes, they are humorous takes on serious things that have happened in my life and I feel if I have been through things other people have been through things too,” said Williams. “I am pleasantly happy that people clapped their way through my life stories.”

John Caparella, president and COO of The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo, surprised Wendy with a birthday cake to celebrate her 50th birthday. “Thank you for choosing The Venetian for your very first stand-up comedy show,” he said. The cake was from the kitchen of Buddy “Cake Boss” Valastro at Carlo’s Bake Shop at The Venetian.

Lipshtick – The Perfect Shade of Stand-Up is a 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 brings regular stand-up comedy performances to The Sands Showroom from an opening slate of 14 critically acclaimed comediennes.
