Two-time Emmy award winner Louie Anderson is one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics and was named by Comedy Central as “One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time.”
Currently he is headlining in his own show, “Louie-Larger Than Life” at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino on the famed Las Vegas Strip.
Anderson began his career at a comedy club in his native Minneapolis, when on a dare from friends; he got up on stage and performed.
Known as a “clean” comedian, his stories about growing up in the Midwest, being one of 11 children and dealing with an alcoholic father provided endless material for the comic with audiences of all types relating to his everyday life experiences.
The multi-talented performer went on to do television and movies starring in his own CBS sitcom “The Louie Show” and his own comedy specials for both HBO and Showtime. Anderson also has guest starred on such popular sitcoms as “Scrubs” and “Grace Under Fire,” dramas like “Touched by an Angel” and “Chicago Hope.”
He also has appeared in memorable featured roles in such films as “Coming to America” opposite Eddie Murphy. The multi-talented comedian/actor’s resume also includes the syndicated hit series, “Family Feud” and being executive producer and creator of the two-time Emmy Award winning animated series on FOX “Life With Louie.”
