DESTINY & LYDIA: DEPRIVED WIVES AT THE RIVIERA VEGAS
DESTINY & LYDIA are back on stage doing standup together at the RIVIERA IN LAS VEGAS in “DEPRIVED WIVES!”
The duo share their uniquely hilarious insights into love, motherhood, lack of sex and marriage… When they're not mad at their husbands they're known as "HOLLYWOOD MOMS" BUT PLEASE FORGIVE ALL THE BOOB JOKES! I wanted to do highbrow comedy, but it was a tug of war, so I gave in. It's the first time Destiny and I have done this act, so don't be too hard on us!!
June 5-11, Two shows a night 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Opening act for a fantastic lineup!
Destiny often opens for Paul Rodriguez and is a seasoned standup with years of credits, including: Tonight Show with Jay Leno, VH-1, MTV, Showtime, Paris Casino Vegas, Laugh Factory, Ice House, Comedy Store, Riviera and as one of the original Three Blond Moms! Destiny started in San Fransisco and has many years on the circuit. Lydia and Destiny are best friends and it's delightful to watch their bantering on stage. They are adept at “Clean Comedy," with some more edgy material thrown in. They've spent the last few years getting lots of new comedy material by raising kids, including their husbands.
