George Wallace & Trio
February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
By the age of six, George Wallace knew he wanted to be a comedian. He always enjoyed making people laugh, but he also knew the importance of an education. He attended the University of Akron, Ohio and graduated with degrees in transportation, marketing/advertising, plus advance studies in radio and television from Columbia School of Broadcasting. Literally, a rags-to-riches story, Wallace went from selling rags to the vice president of advertising to leaving the advertising field and performing stand-up comedy and then writing for “The Redd Foxx Show.”
Wallace was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Soul Train/Centric Comedy All-Star Awards; and won Best Stand-Up Comedian at the prestigious American Comedy Awards. As a veteran radio personality, he has also made appearances on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” and is a charter member of “The Tom Joyner Morning Show.”
In 2004, Wallace appeared as the headlining star of his own show at Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino for a 30-day run. Sin City showed its admiration by extending Wallace’s contract indefinitely and nicknaming him “The New Mr. Vegas.” He celebrated his 10th anniversary headlining at Flamingo in March 2014, and then announced he was closing the show to head back out on the road.
Tickets start at $32. Please see website for details.
