COMEDY AFTER DARK
COMEDY AFTER DARK
Anthony Padilla (Headliner)
After a career-ending injury in baseball, the guy who felt like he had a lot to say and nobody to listen filled the void with comedy... getting to talk to strangers who would listen whether they wanted to or not! Anthony started his career in Arizona, and it wasn't long before he began working with everyone from 80's rockers Wang Chung to iconic comedy legend Louie Anderson. He opened nightly for Anderson for nearly a year at The Louie Anderson Theater before landing his own gig in Las Vegas. He has also appeared on The CW Network, A&E, The History Channel, and Lifetime.
Anthony can now be seen alongside Las Vegas professional sports handicapper Scott Pritchard, co-hosting “The Odds Couple”, a sports betting and entertainment show, every Friday from 12-12:30 pacific live on the vegas video network and of course headlining “Comedy After Dark Starring Anthony Padilla” every Thursday through Sunday in the beautiful Shimmer Cabaret. With his quick wit, playful interaction with the crowd, and a storytelling ability that leaves you wanting more, it is easy to see why it won't be long before Anthony Padilla is a household name.
Jeremy Wieand (Host)
Jeremy's always been a little guy who brings big laughs. He started out at 11 years old in the entertainment business signing with a New York agent to pursue his dream of being like his hero, Charlie Chaplin. When he was 13, he booked a series on the Family Channel, Big Brother Jake, playing Andy King for 100 episodes. Later he moved to Los Angeles and continued being casted on most major television shows in the 1990's along with commercials and movie roles. During a long hiatus from acting, and numerous jobs in the fitness industry, Jeremy decided after 10 years of wanting to try standup comedy to finally throw his hat in the ring and put on his funny gloves. Because of his lack of height, he's always had a knack for witty comebacks and humorous anecdotes. If it's a confusing, uncomfortable or embarrassing situation, chances are Jeremy's been through it too and can help you laugh along the way about it.
Jeremy has performed at most major clubs including The Comedy Store in Hollywood, Big Al's Comedy Club, The Laugh Factory, LA Comedy Club and the King's Comedy Club at the Rio Hotel and can now be seen hosting “Comedy After Dark Starring Anthony Padilla” every Thursday-Sunday in the beautiful Shimmer Cabaret.
Various comedians from all over the world, television and movies, will appear weekly with Anthony and Jeremy with special surprise celebrity performer drop-ins! You never know who might stop in to have some fun with these guys!
