Budd Friedman and Mark Lonow’s world-famous Improv Comedy Club at Harrah’s Las Vegas showcases a different marquee of acts each week. Maryellen Hooper takes the stage Tuesday through Sunday, with supporting acts James Connoly and Flip Schultz.  

Improv shows are at 8:30pm and 10:30pm every Tuesday through Sunday. Tickets are $29.05 (plus applicable taxes) or $44.95 (plus applicable taxes) for VIP tickets that include special seating, an Improv t-shirt and post-show meet-and-greet with the comics. Special two-for-one tickets are available for locals for the 10:30pm show. Tickets are available at Harrah’s Box Office (702-369-5223) and online at

A stand-up veteran, Maryellen Hooper’s comedy has taken her from clubs and colleges to theaters and television. She’s appeared on The Dennis Miller Show, The Martin Short Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and has had her own half hour special on Comedy Central called Lounge Lizards. In 1998, Maryellen was honored by her fellow comedians at the American Comedy Awards with the “Female Comedian of the Year” award.

A physical, story-teller, Maryellen’s act is an ever-evolving story about her life as a woman, wife and mother. Never crude or offensive, her accounts of life’s little annoyances leave audiences exhausted from laughter. From home repairs on her family’s “fixer upper” to colicky babies, no story is too sacred to share with her audiences. Maryellen just taped her latest stand-up special, “Stinky Flowers” which will air this fall. The special is based on her stories about wifedom and mommyhood from her hugely popular blog, Stinky Flowers
