When she appeared on America’s Got Talent in 2009, comedian Grandma Lee finally had her big break. She was 75 when she made it into the top 10 of the hit reality show, and her national breakthrough after years of working the clubs as a standup proves it’s never too late to become an overnight success. and now the hilariously salty comedienne is performing four nights a week in The King’s Comedy Club at The Rio Las Vegas.
Despite her age, Grandma Lee isn’t afraid to touch on some edgy material. She’s capable of being funny in a clean, network television appropriate style that helped make her a hit on America’s Got Talent, but she’s unleashed to say whatever she wants in her Las Vegas shows. Whether she’s working clean or a little bit blue, Grandma Lee’s comedy always come from a place of truth as her wildly off the cuff performances are filled with unpredictable twists and turns.
Fans of the straight shooting comic can get an up close and personal dose of her famously honest attitude with the purchase of a meet and greet ticket, which allows delighted guests the opportunity to shoot the breeze and snap some pictures with Grandma Lee an hour before she hits the stage.
Most people her age come to Las Vegas to enjoy a vacation during their post-retirement twilight years, but Grandma Lee came to Las Vegas to work. The salty senior performs four nights a week in King’s Comedy Club at The Rio with energy, insight, honesty, and a dirty mouth that would wear out comedians half her age.
