George Wallace at Las Vegas Caesars Palace

George Wallace started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1977 when he first stepped on stage at a Manhattan comedy club. His natural ability to make people laugh and his likable personality were an instant hit with audiences. That year he continued to perform in New York and perfect his craft while living with fellow comedian and friend Jerry Seinfeld.

In 1978, Wallace moved to the West Coast and started working as a writer for “The Red Foxx Show.” He also became a regular performer at the legendary Comedy Store. Wallace made his debut in Las Vegas as the opening act for Diana Ross in 1982. Afterwards, he performed as the opening act for Tom Jones for more than five years.

He was awarded an American Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Comic” in 1995 and has been featured in a number of TV shows including “Seinfeld,” “Chelsea Lately,” “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Oprah.” Wallace has also appeared in various movies including “The Ladykillers” and “Batman Forever.” Now you will see billboards all over the US as George Wallace is the “New Mr. Vegas” and has the best 10pm show on the strip. Wallace has been in Vegas for 5 years now performing at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino. Tonight’s event is HISTORIC.  Who knew that almost 30 years later these two would meet up again where it all began!
