Las Vegas headliner, TV Host Personality and Philanthropist Jeff Civillico just added “spokesman” to his resume. The comedian was recently named “Ambassador” for the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. This is the first time in its 27-year history that a celebrity has partnered with the Museum.

“When our team first met Jeff, we knew he was the perfect match to embrace and spread our message on education, science, archaeological discovery and the preservation of fossils and rich history found in our immediate surroundings,” said Las Vegas Natural History Museum Founder/Executive Director, Marilyn Gillespie in a statement. “We share the same family audience and passion for Nevada history as Jeff.  With so much expansion and growth currently happening at the Museum, we believe it is perfect timing for Jeff to join forces with us and to help publicize all that we are accomplishing and creating at the Museum.  His enthusiasm is infectious, and we are so excited to have him be an intricate part of our team.”

“I am a naturally curious person, and enjoy discovering new tidbits about my home here in Las Vegas. When I saw what the Las Vegas Natural History Museum was doing, I knew I had to be a part of it,” said Jeff Civillico, in a statement. “I have been a family-friendly entertainer for my entire life, and love seeing people from all walks of life and all age groups enjoy my show. Blending my natural interests in science, discovery, and history with a family environment that is a showcase for Las Vegas and inspiring for kids—all in a way that is both intellectual and fun—is a perfect combination.”

The entertainer will appear in and be a part of marketing, special events, corporate development and special programming for the Museum.
