Laguna Playhouse Presents A New Year's Eve Tradition- Rita Rudner Starring In HER ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, LAST SHOW OF 2018

Laguna Playhouse is thrilled to announce a hilarious way to start your New Year, its fifth annual New Year's Eve celebration performance of superstar comedienne Rita Rudner in Rita Rudner: HER ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY LAST SHOW OF 2018. Rita Rudner: HER ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY LAST SHOW OF 2018 will perform on Monday, December 31 at 7pm at Laguna Playhouse, 606 Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach.

Rita Rudner is not only one of America's top comedians -- she's also a New York Times bestselling author, as well as an award-winning television personality, screenwriter, playwright, Broadway dancer and actress. A house-filling favorite in Vegas, Rudner is beloved for her witty one-liners, which have helped make hers the longest-running solo show in Vegas history -- she's sold more than a million tickets during her time there.

Now this comedy legend is hosting her own early evening New Year's Eve party at Laguna Playhouse, where you'll toast the end of 2018 and watch the ball drop on the East Coast with a complimentary champagne drink and dessert. Rita Rudner's "Absolutely, Positively Rita's Last Show Ever in 2018" is a one night special performance featuring special musical guests 92629 (Molly Bergman and Peyton Goss).

Rudner has performed over 2,000 solo shows in Las Vegas since the MGM Corporation built a theatre for her in 2002. She was named Las Vegas "Comedian Of The Year" nine years in a row, in 2006 received The Nevada Ballet's Woman Of The Year Award and in 2017 received a Casino Entertainment Legend Award.

Rita's first solo HBO special, Rita Rudner's One Night Stand, was nominated for several awards, as was her eponymous English BBC television show that later appeared in the USA on A&E. Rudner's two one-hour specials for HBO, Born to Be Mild and Married Without Children, were ratings standout and in 2008 she starred in PBS's first ever stand-up comedy special,Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas. Rita's most recent special, A Tale Of Two Dresses,is currently available On Demand.

Rita Rudner has written five books, including such bestselling non-fiction titles as NakedBeneath My Clothes and Rita Rudner's Guide to Men and the novels Tickled Pink and Turning the Tables. The audio version of Tickled Pink received a Grammy nomination. Her most recent book is her latest collection of essays, called I Still Have It...I Just Can't Remember Where I Put It.

Rita Rudner moved to New York at the age of 15 to become a dancer on Broadway. She appeared in several shows, including the original productions of Follies and Mack and Mabel. It was while in Annie on Broadway that she began exploring the comedy clubs of Manhattan. In the early 1980s, Rudner took a full-time leap from chorus lines to punch lines and was soon a regular guest on both Late Night With David Letterman and The Tonight Show.

Rudner is a frequent collaborator with her writer/producer husband of thirty years, Martin Bergman. The couple's first produced film script was Peter's Friends. The film, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Kenneth Branagh, Imelda Staunton, Stephen Fry, and Rita, won the Evening Standard Peter Sellers' Award for Comedy and was nominated for the Goya Award for Best European Film of 1994. The couple's most recent playTwo's A Crowdhad its world premiere at the Laguna Playhouse this September and will receive its New York premiere next summer.
