Veteran standup comic Michael “Wheels” Parise hosts the hilarious ComedyLIVE! standup showcase at The Royal Resort Hotel Showroom (an off the beaten path gem located just a few blocks from The Strip), and he’s bringing his formidable list of comedy world friends onstage with him.
Parise spent two decades opening for comedy icon Andrew “Dice” Clay, the only standup to ever sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. Parise has also continued to headline on some of the most legendary comedy stages in the world, including Caroline’s, The Improv, Catch a Rising Star, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Store, while he’s appeared in 70 TV programs and 15 feature films over the course of his long career. Parise’s caustic and sometimes outrageous style has made him an icon, but he didn’t just earn the nickname The Cannoli King for his standup persona… he also runs an extremely successful catering company based in Los Angeles that offers a huge menu of international cuisine, including 37 legendarily decadent varieties of the famous Italian dessert.
Parise keeps the show moving as the permanent headliner and host of ComedyLIVE!, and you never know which of his favorite touring comedians he’s met and worked with over his long career or up and coming young local comics he’ll bring up onstage to fill out the gut bustingly funny night of comedy.
Take a detour from The Strip and let comedy veteran Michael “Wheels” Parise and some of his handpicked favorites from the world of standup entertain with you a night of laughter in the ComedyLIVE! showcase, running five nights a week at The Royal Resort Hotel Showroom.
