On 19 March 2013
Comedian Whitney Cummings, star of the autobiographical sitcom “Whitney” on NBC, will perform at Treasure Island in Las Vegas on April 26
Cummings began her comedic career as a series regular on MTV’s hit series “Punk’d” in 2004. Since then, she has appeared regularly on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” and has participated in numerous “Comedy Central Roasts” including those of David Hasselhoff and Joan Rivers.
In 2010, her hour-long stand up special “Money Shot” was nominated for an American Comedy Award.
She had an Chelsea Lately-esque talk show “Love You, Mean It” but it was cancelled after just eleven episodes. The show was supposed to create a little late-night dynasty along with Chelsea Handler's show.
In addition to being a writer and executive producer of, “Whitney,” Cummings is the co-creator and co-writer of the hit CBS series “2 Broke Girls.” Additionally, she has guest starred on the series “House, M.D.” and starred in the 2008 movie “Made of Honor.”
Cummings was named one of Variety’s “10 Scribes to Watch” in 2011, and received the “Comedian of the Year Award” at the 2010 Young Hollywood Awards.
In 2009, she was honored as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Comedy Stars of Tomorrow” and Variety named her one of the “Top 10 Comics to Watch” in 2007.
She released her debut stand-up album, “Emotional Ninja” in 2010 and later on she went on tour with Denis Leary and the “Rescue Me Comedy Tour” to promote the show's 6th season.
