Big Al’s Comedy Club Announces Line-Up of Acts Through August

May 13, 2011 by  

Big Al’s Comedy Club at The Orleans Hotel and Casino announces a diverse line-up of July, August and September acts when Grandma Lee concludes her stint on July 2.

Grandma Lee – Now through July 2
Headlining now through July 2 is sassy senior Grandma Lee. Known as “America’s funniest and outrageous grandmother,” Grandma Lee shot to stardom on the NBC talent show America’s Got Talent, where she made it through to the grand finale. She was a contestant in the 2004 season of Last Comic Standing on NBC, where she later returned for three seasons as a special guest and was chosen as a Top 10 Favorite Comic of the program. Grandma Lee won the 2003 Las Vegas Comedy Festival at MGM Grand and appeared in America’s Got Talent Live at Planet Hollywood, hosted by Jerry Springer.

Comedians well known on the club circuit perform with Grandma Lee nightly.

Kato Kaelin and The Hollywood Guest Stars – July 7-30
America’s most well known houseguest, Kato Kaelin, hits the stage and hosts several evenings of comedy with The Hollywood Guest Stars – Jeff Richards and The Greg Wilson. Infamous for his role in one of the most popular murder trials in the world, Kaelin has made a name for himself on the comedy circuit and is not shy with the O.J. jokes.

Jeff Richards remains the only comedian to squander opportunities on both Saturday Night Live and MADtv. He’s since guest starred on shows such as Til Death, Flash Forward, and Mind of Mencia.

The Greg Wilson jumped off the VH1 commentary bandwagon before it made him a star, followed by the box-office mega-flop, The Hottie and the Nottie with Paris Hilton. He has since guest starred on successful shows such as Modern Family, Bones and Ugly Betty.

The Queens of Tart – August 4-28
Host of The Queens of Tart, Anna Lane, is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, began entertaining at the tender age of six, by telling jokes to her stuffed animals. She now performs in comedy clubs throughout the U.S. and has appeared on television and in film.

Jody Ferdig is no stranger to comedy; she worked her way through the Houston outlaw comedy circuit before tackling Hollywood. This bawdy redhead has opened up for comedy legends including Rodney Dangerfield, Dave Chapelle, Ron White, George Lopez, Margaret Cho, Mitch Hedberg, and Ralphie May. She co-starred in the award-winning documentary Red, White and Bitch about life as a female comic; performed on SITV’s Funny is Funny; and has been featured on My Life on the D-List with Kathy Griffin.

Lang Parker moved to Los Angeles from Wisconsin to pursue a career telling jokes about her dysfunctional upbringing on a Muskego dairy farm. Lang came to national attention on the Emmy-nominated NBC show Last Comic Standing, where she impressed judge Buddy Hackett with her tomboy persona and comedic timing. Lang has appeared in over two-dozen national commercials and was crowned California’s Funniest Female in 2008.

Big Al’s Comedy Club headliner show times are Thursday at 7:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday at 7:30 and 10 p.m. Beginning July 8, the late Friday and Saturday show time will be 9:30 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. Every Sunday from 9 to 11:30 p.m. is open mic night, with no cover charge.

Tickets are on sale now and are priced at $39.95 and $49.95, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 702.365.7075, or by visiting
