Las Vegas, NV (Dec. 17, 2023) – The World Poker Tour® and renowned American artist Daniel Arsham cap off their year-long collaboration with a televised celebrity invitational featuring five-time Emmy award winning actor Neil Patrick Harris.
The WPT® x Daniel Arsham Celebrity Invitational will run Monday, Dec. 18, at the WPT World Championship festival at Wynn Las Vegas. A prominent lineup of Harris, Arsham, Patrick Bruel, Arden Cho, Eileen Davidson and Adam Weitsman will compete in a six-handed sit & go tournament.
“Our partnership with Daniel has brought many memorable moments throughout the year, but this may take the cake,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “It is amazing to have Neil and other celebrity guests under the lights of a WPT TV production.”
Harris made a debut televised poker appearance in 2004 when he competed on the “Celebrity Poker Showdown.” During the show, he successfully topped his qualifying sit & go, then went on to win $20,000 as the runner-up on the season four championship episode. Now, the multi-hyphenate will return to compete against a new cast of characters.
The first-place prize for the invitational is a veiled Porsche sculpture created by Arsham himself.
“Working with the World Poker Tour has been a pleasure, allowing me to bring my creativity to an avenue and community I previously had not explored” said Arsham. “I look forward to experiencing the WPT tournament experience firsthand.”
The invitational will occur in the Wynn LaTour Ballroom beginning at 3:30 p.m. A livestream of the event on the WPT Twitch and YouTube channels will follow at 4 p.m.
