Who says women aren’t funny? Apparently not one of the largest casinos in Vegas the Venetian (which has over 7,000 rooms with up to 12,000 guests on any given day)!
Edible Skinny got to check out some very funny ladies the other night at a special preview event of The Venetian Las Vegas’ LIPSHTICK: THE PERFECT SHADE OF STAND-UP at Morels French Steakhouse and Bistro at the Grove last week.
The laughs started early as comic legend Jon Lovitz took the stage to pep up the crowd before introducing the lovely lady comediennes Heather McDonald and Loni Love.
Jon joked about how about how excluded he felt by not being included in the female-only comedy series, which kicks off July 11 with Wendy Williams at The Venetian Las Vegas’ Sands Showroom. He gave props to several of the comediennes that will be performing throughout the series including Loni and Heather, Whitney Cummings, Rita Rudner, Lisa Lampanelli, Joy Behar, Iliza Schleshinger, Wendy Liebman, Caroline Rhea, and more. “I’m a huge supporter of female comics and these ladies are very talented,” he shared with the audience.
The mostly female audience sipped white wine and noshed on mushroom tarts and Ahi Tuna bites courtesy of Morels French Steakhouse and Bistro. First up was mommy comic Heather McDonald who will be performing July 18th and 19th at the Venetian.
Heather was followed by the hysterical Miss Loni Love. Love (wearing Calvin Klein which she loves because he designs for plus-size women), had the audience reeling with laughter and clapping non-stop as she covered everything from LA women being obsessed with diets to her experience interviewing First Lady Michelle Obama. She also interacted and chatted with guests and said, “Come out to The Venetian this summer for Lipshtick! Support us-we funny. We sexy. We female.”
True that ladies!
