Ground-breaking comedic legend Joan Rivers is the undisputed Queen of Comedy, and she triumphantly returns to Las Vegas to prove she’s still got it after all these years. Rivers commands the stage at The Venetian, keeping audiences rolling in the aisles with her razor sharp tongue to prove that all of the young comedians who were influenced by her still have a long way to go to catch up.
It’s impossible to overstate Rivers’ influence on the world of showbiz and comedy, and her list of accomplishments is seemingly endless. Rivers is an Emmy winning, Tony nominated, and Grammy nominated performer who broke new ground for female comedians, was one of the most frequent guest hosts when Johnny Carson took time off from The Tonight Show, starred in her own critically acclaimed talk show, and has written multiple best-selling books. Her red carpet hosting gigs are the stuff of legend, and she hosts Fashion Police on E! and stars in Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best on WETV with her daughter. She’s also pulled off the rare feat of remaining hip and relevant through the years as well, as she was recently the subject of the critically acclaimed documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work and made a memorable appearance on an episode Louis CK’s Emmy and Golden Globe nominated cult hit Louie on FX.
Rivers has been performing comedy since the 1960’s, but the hard-working legend hasn’t lost a step over the years. To this day, her standup sets are more energetic than those of much younger performers, and she’s still engaged with contemporary culture. When Rivers steps onto the stage and takes the microphone, her sharp wit, precise observations, engaging storytelling style, and over the top diva persona combine to create a classic showbiz experience like nothing else in Las Vegas.
Joan Rivers Live at The Venetian provides audiences with a rare opportunity to see a true showbiz legend take the stage and prove that she’s just as vital, gutsy, salty, energetic, and hilarious as she was when she first started performing comedy over half a century ago.
