Comedian Adam Sandler is headlining a series of comedy shows at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Nov. 10, 17 and Jan. 27, 2018.
The former Saturday Night Live cast member and star of such hit film as “Grown Ups,” “The Wedding Singer,” and “Happy Gilmore” is the first comic to ever have a residency at the hotel and casino, according to a statement released Monday. Musicians Jay-Z, Bob Dylan, Bruno Mars and Drake have performed there.
“Our roster is eclectic and dynamic, much like our brand,” said Fedor Banuchi The Cosmopolitan’s Vice President of Entertainment. “To announce Adam Sandler as our first comedic resident is very exciting for us and we’re thrilled to welcome him to The Cosmopolitan.”
Sandler is currently working on the Netflix comedy, “The Week Of,” which co-stars actor and fellow comedian Chris Rock. It’s scheduled to premiere sometime next year. Sandler also is co-starring in Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories,” which premieres in theaters and on Netflix in October.
The residency marks a return to Sandler’s roots as a standup comedian.
“Can’t thank The Cosmopolitan enough for making me feel so at home,” Sandler said in the statement. “Such a great theater to play at and we can’t wait to get loose there.”
Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. Pacific and are available here or through Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000. Prices start at $40.
Additional performances in 2018 are expected to be announced at a later date. Sandler’s show contains adult content and is intended for mature audiences only.
