IMMOKALEE, Fla. (Sept. 13, 2022) – GOLD Entertainment presents comedy icons Rita Rudner and Robert Klein performing live in concert at Seminole Casino Hotel Immokalee on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2023 at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are on sale now for $89.50 and are available by phone at 1-800-514-ETIX or online at www.moreinparadise.comAttendees must be 21 years of age.
A house-filling favorite in Las Vegas since she opened as one of the hottest tickets in town in June 2000, Rudner is known for her epigrammatic one-liners. Over the course of a multi-year run she sold almost two million tickets, grossed over $100 million and become 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 and in 2006 received The Nevada Ballet’s Woman Of The Year Award. 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 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’s first ever stand-up comedy special.
For more than 40 years, Klein has entertained audiences and continues to have an acclaimed career in comedy, on Broadway, on television, and in film. In 1975, Klein was the first comedian to appear in a live concert on Home Box Office. He has gone on to do nine one-man shows for HBO and received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music and Lyrics in 2001 for “Robert Klein: Child in His 50’s.” Klein released “Robert Klein: The HBO Specials 1975-2005,” a collector’s DVD box set to critical acclaim. His HBO special “Robert Klein: Unfair and Unbalanced” earned him a second Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. He was nominated twice for Grammy Awards for “Best Comedy Album of the Year” for his albums “Child of the Fifties” and “Mind Over Matter.”
Among dozens of starring and guest-starring roles on television, he co-starred in the hit NBC series, “Sisters,” had a recurring guest-starring role on “Law and Order” and has guest starred on “The Good Wife” and “Royal Pains.” He regularly appeared on talk shows, making more than 100 appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” He has also appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
