Seth Meyers: Saturday, May 04 (7:30pm & 10pm)
Award-winning writer, comedian, actor, and late-night television host, Seth Meyers, is making his Wynn Las Vegas debut on May 4, bringing his memorable comedy and topical humor to the Encore Theater stage. Meyers began his career with Saturday Night Live in 2001 where he served as a cast member for 13 seasons and a head writer for nine seasons, during which he won a Peabody Award, as well as a Primetime Emmy. Named one of TIME Magazine’s "100 Most Influential People" (2014), Meyers' television work has garnered 20 Emmy nominations since 2007, and has gained him acclaim for his perfectly-timed wit and off-the-cuff satire; all of which has led to Meyers’ becoming a particularly sought-after host – a role in which he's delivered at such swanky affairs as the 90th White House Correspondent’s Dinner (2011), the 18th and 19th ESPY Awards (2010 and 2011), the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards (2014), and the 75th Golden Globe Awards (2018).
Jim Gaffigan: Saturday, May 18 (7:30pm & 10pm)
A dry and clever American standup comedian who’s hateful toward Hot Pockets and proudly pale, comedian, actor, writer, and producer, Jim Gaffigan will bring his international Quality Time tour to Wynn Las Vegas with two back-to-back performances on May 18. With each of his last four stand-up albums nominated for a GRAMMY, Gaffigan’s observational humor pokes fun at food, laziness, and fatherhood, among other things; and have made him the most-played comedian on Pandora as of 2016 (with over 647 million spins). The winner of a Daytime Emmy, for his work as a commentator on CBS This Morning (2016), the critically-acclaimed performer continues his reign in the comedic world, repeatedly selling out venues across the U.S. Be among the first to see Gaffigan performing material that won’t be seen by the rest of the world, until Amazon Prime Video airs Quality Time this fall, marking the streaming service’s first foray into stand-up comedy.
