Star Trek Las Vegas just got a whole lot funnier. Creation Entertainment has locked in Joe Piscopo, who played The Comic in “The Outrageous Okona” episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1988, as guest #85 for the upcoming event, which will take place August 1-5, 2018, at the Rio Suites Hotel.
Piscopo will appear on stage, sign autographs and be available for photo ops on Wednesday, August 1. He will also perform his act for the Gold and Captain’s Chair Parties on, respectively, Thursday and Friday night. During those shows, which will feature full dinners, Piscopo will be accompanied by a big band.
Piscopo joins such previously announced guests as William Shatner, Jeri Ryan, Jason Isaacs, Wilson Cruz, Mary Chieffo, Colm Meaney, Chase Masterson, Michael Westmore, James Frain, Ira Steven Behr, Kenneth Mitchell, Gates McFadden, Clint Howard, Brent Spiner, Famke Janssen, Jeffrey Combs, Garrett Wang and Ronald D. Moore. Other brand-new guest additions include Athena Massey, Cynthia Gouw, Jennifer Edwards, Gwynyth Walsh, Patti Yasutake, Robert Beltran and Camille Saviola.
Confirmed events so far include the Nevada Pops Orchestra returning to perform a Saturday night concert, while Gary Graham and his group, The Sons of Kirk, will once again serve as the house band. And Biggs and Combs will particpate in a concert as part of the beloved STLV staple, the Star Trek Rat Pack.
