Louie Anderson to Close Showcase at Excalibur

June 12, 2010 by  

Popular comedian Louie Anderson will close his show ‘Larger Than Life’ Sunday, Aug. 1, completing a more than four-year run with Excalibur.

“I have truly enjoyed my time with Excalibur and am grateful for the opportunity that MGM MIRAGE and SPI Entertainment have given me,” said Anderson. “I will miss all of my friends at Excalibur and will leave a lot of great memories behind. I look forward to the future and to concentrating on some new projects that are near and dear to my heart.”

Anderson began at Excalibur on Valentine’s Day 2006.  In between dates headlining in ‘Larger Than Life,’ he has helped start ‘Stand-Up Boot Camp’ with co-founder comedian Kyle Cease.  The two men have been holding interactive seminars with great success across the country to help mentor aspiring comics in everything from presentation to career advice.

Excalibur President and Chief Operating Officer Felix Rappaport said, “Louie is one of the best and most recognizable comedians in the world and we will certainly miss him.  He has been headlining on The Strip for more than 25 years.  We certainly wish him well with his future endeavors and know that he will find continued success.”

Adam Steck, producer of SPI Entertainment, said, “It has been an honor to work with a comedy icon.  Louie Anderson has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met and he has been a pleasure to work with over all this time.”

Anderson will continue to work tirelessly on Comedy Boot Camp and other projects that will be announced in the weeks to come.
