Jul 31, 2001 2:11 AM

Dick Foster Productions and the Sahara Hotel and Casino have signed a contract to extend “The Michael Holly Off-the-Wall Comedy Hour” indefinitely.

The original three-month contract was successfully completed in June.

Holly’s afternoon show in the Sahara’s Congo Room is an interactive comedy routine that includes the ancient crowd-pleasing art of juggling, tight wire walking, audience interaction and other unimaginable stunts that garnered the show a B+ rating from reviewer Mike Weatherford at the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Holly’s show is the highest rated afternoon show in Las Vegas, according to the Review-Journal rankings.

Holly has been seen in many Las Vegas production shows including Dick Foster Productions’ long-running “Spellbound” at Harrah’s Las Vegas.

Holly just returned to Las Vegas after performing in another Dick Foster production, “Eclipse” at Caesars Gauteng in South Africa. He has appeared on the Arts & Entertainment Network’s “An Evening at the Improv” and in George Schlatter’s “Comedy Club on NBC.” His long list of credits also include the “Folies Bergere” at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas and “Jubilation” at the Crystal Palace in the Bahamas.

“The Michael Holly Off-the-Wall Comedy Hour” can be seen at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday in the Congo Room at the Sahara Hotel and Casino.
