This week, Ira spoke with Sue Costello.
Comedian Sue Costello is headlining in the Laugh Factory at the Tropicana Las Vegas through May 6.
In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Costello talks her unique approach to comedy, her blue-collar background and self-education, why she decided to always become vulnerable when she performs on stage, and why people from all walks of life connect with her.
Costello has appeared on countless television shows including “NYPD Blue” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” on Comedy Central. After starring in two TV pilots for CBS, she earned her own self-titled television series, “Costello,” in which she also served as a producer and the co-creator.
She was also a guest host on NBC’s “Later,” performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” and made it to the finals of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Costello has also been seen on “Comics Unleashed” with Byron Allen.
Costello was cast in such films as “Southie” starring Donnie Wahlberg and directed by John Shea; “Once in the Life,” with Laurence Fishburne; and “The Fighter” with Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.
