Comedian Michael Wheels Parise has a Podcast coming out in January 14th 2013 Called “I Do Tings”! He will be taping at Studio Red in Las Vegas, Nevada and airing it every Monday and Thursday at 4PM (pst). We asked Wheels, what he has in store for the show? “I just want a place to air what i think”. “I have done it all in the 25 years i have been in the entertainment business.” “Comedian, Celebrity Chef, Entrepreneur, Restaurant owner, Caterer to the stars, and the list goes on…as we say in New York”, “I Do Tings” ! Michael Wheels Parise is not the shy type to say the least. Touring the country for over twenty five years with the most shocking, controversial comedian of our time, Andrew Dice Clay, their friendship dates back to 1989 at Pips Comedy Club in Brooklyn NY. Growing up in an Italian/Albanian family in Long Island and coming from a family of chefs and politicians, Parise was destined to be a comedian. “I knew at 5 years old i was gonna be a comedian” Wheels says. “I remember performing at my uncle Andrew’s republican fundraisers in NY, doing impersonations in front of the local politicians and there families”. “I would go on stage and do Nixon and everybody would crack up, I was 6”. Michael Wheels Parise now lives in Las Vegas, NV., still performing as a national headliner. “I am all over the place”, Wheels says… “as a matter of fact i will be headlining the Laugh Factory at the Tropicana in Las Vegas on January 14th thru the 20, the same day i am launching my new podcast”. So we asked Wheels…”Whats the show about in general’?…”I am obviously a fine lover of food and I love the entertainment biz as well,I love the good life… i just feel like people sugar coat it they always have the guard up”. “I also love living the good life, smoking great premium cigars, enjoying the greatest wines, sipping the finest Scotch, rums, Cognacs, eating and cooking cutting edge cuisine,…” “I live a great life with my family and close friends”. “I want to share some of the things we eat,drink, talk about and do”. “I don’t want to have the same watered down interview with the same watered down celebrity and find out the same shit we always knew’. “Lets pour a drink of whatever we may be drinking and light up whatever we may be smoking, have a bite to eat, drop our guards and hang out”. “Lets talk food, comedy, life and whatever else comes up”. “lets just catch the buzz and let it out”. “I know a lot of people”,..” famous and not so famous” “I am going to have them all on the show”. “Politically incorrect, grammatically incorrect, unfiltered and unstructured, uncensored,…The way life is supposed to be”. “Cheers to the good life” ! Wheels Parise’s Podcats will air on January 14th, 2103.

About my new PODCAST everyone: I have been in the entertainment industry as most of you know for 25 years and I have been living in Los Angeles for 23 of those years and as most of you probably know as well, I am in the food industry too. I have toured over 20 years with the most controversial comedian of our time, I had one of the most exclusive catering companies in Los Angeles and fed very high-end celebrities and fortune 500 clientele. Living and working in Los Angeles I have been very fortunate to surround myself with some very interesting people/celebrities in show business and been privy to things you would not even believe. I have dined in some of the most incredible food spots in the USA and the world. I have smoked some greatest cigars, among other things for that matter. Touring vineyards and drinking amazing wines with amazing people ranging from $1.99 to $4000 a bottle. I have seen and done a lot in 25 years in this business. YES! 2013 marks my 25th year in entertainment!
I feel it is about time to talk about what I saw, heard and been a part of in the last 25 years. I have stories that will make your hair grow in places you thought have been ignored all your life. People always ask, “What do you really do”? And, I always answer, “I do tings” …which coincidentally is the name of my new show/podcast coming out in mid January, Michael Wheels Parise,…”I do tings” , where I take a candid approach on life, past, present and future. We will be talking to critically acclaimed chefs, celebrities… we all love and hate, all sorts of entertainers and all sorts people that, “LIVE THE GOOD LIFE”! I would love to have you on the show one-day, if you have lived the good life and have a need to tell us go to “I Do Tings” and click on “how to be a guest”.
I will not sugar coat, I will not apologize, I may offend just a little… because as I always said “I am not for everybody” but I can promise you this…”You will laugh your ass off” you will have an inside ear to some great interviews with amazing people as we pour ourselves a drink of whatever we are drinking and smoke whatever we may be smoking and just talk about whatever comes up. You know…I always had a way of getting things out of people.I have committed 25 years into entertainment and food, I payed my dues, i may not always be politically correct or grammatically correct… but I have decided, its time. Stay tuned for mid January…Michael Wheels Parise…”I Do Tings”…
The Laugh Factory at the Las Vegas Tropicana, bringing in some heavy hitters.
PRLog (Press Release) – Dec. 16, 2012 – Rumors dating back at least a couple of months that Roseanne would be slotted into the prime 7 p.m. slot at the Laugh Factory comedy club space are confirmed by the listing of her shows on the Trop’s website (http://www.troplv.com/entertainment/events/roseanne-barr). She premieres Jan. 14 for a six-night-a-week engagement. Tickets are on sale through March 3. Prices are $49, $59 and $69.
The arrival of Roseanne moves Murray Sawchuck’s comedy/magic show to 5 p.m. (he starts in the new time slot on Feb. 4), and the Laugh Factory’s regular three-comic showcase remains at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m headlined by, comic veteran Michael Wheels Parise (http://imbloated.com/) for the opening week.
Roseanne is the first solo stand-up comic to play that room since the man who designed the club, Brad Garrett, left a year ago for MGM Grand.
The Laugh Factory’s layout is expected to change, with the addition of booths that have been pulled from the old Tiffany Theatre showroom in the ongoing renovations that will turn that room into a more contemporary-styled theater. That remodel, which has effectively gutted the half-century-old showroom, is to be finished in time for the next Vegas spin of “Dancing With The Stars” at the Trop in the spring of 2013.
