Comedian George Wallace has announced he will be ending his run of his highly popular “Best 10 PM” show in Las Vegas on April 26, 2014 after marking his 10-year anniversary at Flamingo Las Vegas last month.
Wallace, called “The New Mr. Las Vegas,” says he will continue to reside in Las Vegas. “I will live here and forever call it home after these 10 years on the Strip,” explains Wallace. “It is a great city and one I have come to love and feel a real part of.”
His final show will be April 26, 2014 with one remaining week after he returns from a Pentagon assignment overseas entertaining the troops the week of April 15 – 19. His final performance dates will be April 10 – 12 and 22 – 26.
Wallace expects to do a little bit of everything while moving on from the 10-year run at Flamingo Las Vegas. “I may tour the world, the US, do some radio and television and continue to make people laugh and enjoy my life. I am blessed and we will see what lies in store for me. I am sure it will be fun and funny, meaningful and entertaining, and full of love and goodness.”
“I am grateful and appreciative for the opportunity Flamingo Las Vegas has given me over the last decade. It has been an amazing run,” he says. He is the only African American performer to have performed for such a duration on the Strip. He came to Las Vegas for a 30-day run 10 years ago and kept getting his show extended.
“I want to thank the wonderful people of Las Vegas for welcoming me into their lives and city, Gladys Knight for bringing me here, the Las Vegas media for always being there to support my projects and causes, and the amazing fans who live in Las Vegas and the world over for making it possible for me to stay as a headliner on the Strip for over 10 years, isn’t that something?” Wallace shared.
“Flamingo Las Vegas is proud to have served as home to George for the past 10 years,” said Eileen Moore, regional president of Flamingo Las Vegas. “He has been such an important member of our family, and we will miss him very much. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
