Sussie Essman & Joy Behar

The Venetian in Las Vegas is home to a new comedy show with some of the funniest females in the biz: Sussie Essman, Joy Behar, Jennifer Coolidge, Lisa Lampanelli and more fabulous stand-up comedians take to the stage in Lipshtick.

We recently caught up with several of them in Manhattan to see a little of their shtick. Laughter never felt or looked so good. The rotation of hilarious women is a must-see show when visiting Las Vegas.

Most people know Joy Behar from The View, however she has been in the trenches of comedy clubs for over two decades. Joy is also known for her roles on 30 Rock, The Family Guy and Last Comic Standing.

Susie Essman is best known for playing saucy Susie Greene for eight seasons on the HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Jennifer Coolidge

Fans of American Pie will recognize Jennifer Coolidge as Stifler’s mom and for her memorable performance as the lovable and brassy beautician, Paulette Bonafonté, in Legally Blonde. She also played the mindful trophy wife in Christopher Guest’s, Best in Show.

Brash, bawdy and with plenty of raw material, these professionals will be smearing Lipshtick all over the desert. “Our comedy might not be well received in an Amish community but in Sin City we should be fine,” said Behar.

If you need a break from NYC and guaranteed belly laughs, book a flight from JFK to LAS, ASAP.
