One of Las Vegas’ most enduring comedians returns to the stage in July. Impersonator Rich Little debuts his new autobiographical one-man show “Rich Little Live” at the Laugh Factory at the Tropicana on Tuesday, July 14.
Little has a collection of 200 voices in his repertoire, including Jack Benny, Richard Nixon and Johnny Carson, who often had Little on “The Tonight Show.”
Voice actor Mel Blanc, better known as the voice of Bugs Bunny, called him "The Man of a Thousand Voices."
Little’s compilation of impersonations, sketches and interactive video of the actors, musicians, politicians and personalities he worked with throughout his more than 50 years in entertainment will all be a part of the show.
“For the past six years, I’ve been portraying Jimmy Stewart on stage, and while it was well-received, I’ve received countless requests for my life story,” Little says in a press statement. “After much consideration, I realized how many people I’ve met, known and impersonated over the years and decided it would make an interesting project. ‘Rich Little Live’ will include my impersonations and sketches of some of the world’s most famous stars, as well as video of their reactions.”
The classic movie buff is fond of impersonating Stewart, Jack Lemmon, John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart. President Ronald Reagan once told Little, “You do me better than I do.” Some of his favorite current impressions are of stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. “They’re easy to do,” he says in a press statement. “They are larger than life.”
Tickets start at $39.95.
