Veteran funnyman Louie Anderson got his start writing one-liners for Henny Youngman, cut his teeth on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, won two Emmy awards for his animated series Life with Louie, was named “One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time” by Comedy Central, has written a series of best-selling books, has appeared in numerous hit movies and sitcoms, and has over 30 years of comedy experience under his belt… and now he can add “successful Las Vegas resident headliner” to his list of amazing career accomplishments. After wildly successful, multi-year residency runs at The Luxor and The Palace Station, Anderson continues to delight audiences at The Plaza Casino in his latest show Louie Anderson Live.
The funnyman grew up in a housing project in Milwaukee, the second youngest of 11 children, and his first audience was his massive Midwestern family. Perhaps it was the fact that he learned comedy by making his entire family laugh without offending anyone, but to this day Anderson still works clean… and makes audiences roll in the aisles while keeping his material family friendly. Anderson humorously and insightfully delves into his childhood experiences, dealing with his weight, life as a resident in the always unpredictable city of Las Vegas, current events, and so much more. He also improvises a bit, interacting with you or your fellow audience members with some good natured and off the cuff banter.
Anderson owns the stage in The Plaza’s classic showroom multiple times a week when he’s not touring the world. When Anderson is on the road, he invites top-notch touring guest comics who have had appeared on the late night talk show circuit to fill in for him, so no matter what you’re in store for a night of side-splitting comedy.
