Legendary Comedian and Impressionist Rich Little is set to launch a new headliner showcase at The Riviera where the hotel brings classic Vegas back to the Strip. Little will bring his acclaimed show “Will the Real Rich Little Please Stand Up?” to the Starlite Theater, five nights a week from May 25 through June 12.
“I’m thrilled to be home for an extended period after touring for the past few years,” said Little. “This new series at The Riv is going to be a great tribute to Vegas of yesteryear and I’m honored that they chose me to launch this.”
Little’s last Vegas engagement was in 2008 and he has since toured the country, performing his standup routine “Will the Real Rich Little Please Stand Up.” He has also made several stops performing his one-man play “Jimmy Stewart and Friends,” which he wrote himself over the course of several years, where he performs 25 characters on the life of Stewart. Little plans on one day bringing his play to Broadway.
