Named Las Vegas’ Comedian of the Year Nine Years in a Row,
Rudner is Ready to Bring the Laughs to Philly
PHILADELPHIA (February 27, 2023) – PHILADELPHIA (February 27, 2023) – Comedian, actor and best-selling author, Rita Rudner, is making her debut at the Event Center at Live! Casino & Hotel Philadelphia on Friday, April 28, 2023.
Showtime is 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $35 and are available for purchase now at Philadelphia.livecasinohotel.com or AXS.com. Live! Rewards members will receive $10 in free slot play for each order
Rudner is known for her hilarious and epigrammatic one-liners. As a favorite in Las Vegas, she has sold almost two million tickets and has become the longest-running solo female comedy show in the history of the city. Along the way, she’s won Las Vegas’ Comedian of the Year nine years in a row and received the Casino Entertainment Legend Award in October 2017.
On the small screen, Rita’s first solo HBO special, “Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand,” was nominated for several awards. Her eponymous English BBC television show that later appeared in the USA on A&E was also nominated. Rudner’s two one-hour specials for HBO, “Born to Be Mild” and “Married Without Children,” were ratings standouts and she performed all over the country, filling Carnegie Hall in New York three times. In 2008 “Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas” was PBS’ first-ever stand-up comedy special.
Rudner has written five books; her bestselling non-fiction titles, “Naked Beneath My Clothes, Rita Rudner’s Guide to Men” and “I Still Have It…I Just Can’t Remember Where I Put It,” plus the novels “Tickled Pink” and “Turning the Tables.” The audio version of “Naked Beneath My Clothes” received a Grammy nomination. She is currently completing her autobiography, “My Life in Dog Years.”
Rudner frequently collaborates with her writer and producer, and husband of thirty years, Martin Bergman. The couple’s first produced film script was “Peter’s Friends” which starred Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Kenneth Branagh, Imelda Staunton, Stephen Fry, and Rudner. The film won the Evening Standard’s Peter Sellers Award for Best British Film and was nominated for the Goya Award for Best European Film of 1994. The script was nominated for a WGA Best Screenplay Award and Rita won Best Supporting Actress at the American Comedy Awards. Since then, the couple has worked on a TV movie, “A Weekend in The Country,” and the film, “Thanks.”
Rudner just finished performing in “Staged,” a play she and Bergman co-wrote. The show premiered at the Laguna Playhouse earlier this year.
