The longest-running solo comedy show in Las Vegas history!
A house-filling favorite in Las Vegas, Rita Rudner is known for her epigrammatic one-liners. With the longest-running solo comedy show in the history of Las Vegas, Rudner has been named Las Vegas’s “Comedian Of The Year” 9 years in a row!
Rudner’s first solo HBO special, “Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand,” aired in 1989 and was nominated for several awards, as was her six-part TV series “Rita Rudner,” which aired on BBC and A&E in 1990. Rudner’s two one-hour specials for HBO, “Born To Be Mild” and “Married Without Children,” were ratings standouts in the 1990s.
In 2008, “Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas” became the first-ever PBS stand-up comedy special. In 2012, Rudner wrote and performed “The Rita Rudner Show” for BBC radio in London. She also released the Showtime Comedy special “Rita Rudner and 3 Potential Ex-Husbands.” Most recently, she performed in “Act Three” by David Ambrose.
