Legendary comedian Rita Rudner returns to the Playhouse stage for the first time in 10 years! Known for her epigrammatic one-liners, Rudner has enjoyed a fifty-plus year career that includes performances all over the world – from the Palladium in London to NYC’s Carnegie Hall. Rudner is a house-filling favorite in Las Vegas ever since she opened as one of the hottest tickets in town in June 2000. Over the course of a multi-year run she sold almost two million tickets, grossed over a hundred million dollars and became the longest-running solo female comedy show in the history of Las Vegas! She was named Las Vegas’s Comedian of The Year nine years in a row. In October 2017 she was given the Casino Entertainment Legend Award. Rita’s first solo HBO special, Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand, was nominated for several awards, as was her eponymous English BBC television show that later appeared in the USA on A&E. Rudner’s two one-hour specials for HBO, Born to Be Mild and Married Without Children, were ratings standouts. In 2008 Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas was PBS’s first ever stand-up comedy special.
Rita 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. Her memoir, My Life in Dog Years was released in October 2022.
