Late-night comedy gets a jolt with Comedy After Dark at the LVH – Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. This edgy comedy review showcases a rotating lineup of comedians along with host and comedian Anthony Padilla. Many of the headliners, including Padilla, have been on television or in movies. Padilla has been featured in a number of TV shows, including the History channel’s “Pawn Stars” and “American Restoration.”
Padilla didn’t always have comedy on the agenda. His initial plan was to be a baseball player, but fate had other plans. He suffered a career-ending injury and turned his focus to comedy. He started performing as a stand-up comedian in Arizona. His quick wit and captivating storytelling soon landed him gigs working with already established artists like ’80s rockers Wang Chung and iconic comedian Louie Anderson. He performed as Anderson’s opening act for almost a year until he landed a spot headlining his own show.
Along with his work as a stand-up comedian, Padilla has appeared on the CW Network, A&E, the History Channel and Lifetime. He can currently be seen alongside Las Vegas professional sports handicapper Scott Pritchard, co-hosting "The Odds Couple," an online sports betting and entertainment show. His comedic observations appeal to audiences in all arenas.
