Caesars Palace in Las Vegas announced that it will celebrate 40 years of great headliner performers with the installation of bronze plaques in the sidewalks that rim the resort's front fountains and gardens at the Las Vegas Strip. The first superstar performer to be immortalized in the resort's new Roman Plaza walk of fame will be one of comedy's premiere funnymen, Don Rickles.

On Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 6:45 p.m., Rickles will be presented a commemorative plaque in a sidewalk ceremony; the first of many presentations celebrating unforgettable performances at the resort. The plaque will be unveiled by comedy, film and radio star Whoopi Goldberg.

Because the inaugural honor coincides with The Comedy Festival, Nov. 14 - 18, at Caesars Palace, the resort chose the comedy star as its first honoree. A featured Comedy Festival star, Rickles will perform his legendary stand-up show with a full orchestra on Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 8 p.m.
