Vegas Comedy Acts: The Classic and The Vulgar
Would you like to see live comedy and, even better, a performance by a major celebrity? Then head to Sin City, where casinos and Vegas comedy alike await you. No matter which weekend you attend, you're bound to find something that tickles you, or leaves you in tears.
Vegas comedy offers an amazing array of hilarious acts, and you're sure to find something you like. Ray Romano and Kevin James will perform at the Terry Fator Theatre in the Mirage on February 25-26. Both have starred in successful television comedies, with Romano in "Everybody Loves Raymond" and James in "The King of Queens." Their Vegas comedy performance is suitable for families, though children must be 5 years old to attend. Want to catch a solo performance by Romano instead? He will return to the Terry Fator Theatre at The Mirage on March 25-26.
If you're in the mood for adult humor, then Ralphie May's show at the South Point Showroom on March 4-6 may be the best choice for you. You may recognize May from the first season of NBC's Last Comic Standing, or from his three specials on Comedy Central. Let me repeat that May's Vegas comedy show is for adults only (you must be at least 18 years old to attend) and he certainly doesn't shy away from bold content. If you're easily offended, you should probably pick a different show for your stay in Sin City.
For those of you who will be in Las Vegas that same week, but want to catch a family-friendly show, Tim Allen will take the stage at the Showroom at The Venetian March 4-5. Allen will come back for another performance that same month, from March 11-12. Allen is famous for his leading role in the family-friendly television show Home Improvement and in films like The Santa Clause and Disney's Toy Story.
If you don't mind venturing slightly west of Las Vegas Boulevard, then head to the Palms Casino Resort, where you can see actor and rapper Nick Cannon perform on March 5. Some of you may remember Canon from Nickelodian's All That or MTV's Wild 'n Out, or from the 2002 film Drumline. Others of you may know him best as Mariah Carrey's husband. Either way, this multifaceted entertainer is providing a Vegas comedy act you can bring the whole family to—there's no minimum age.
Back at the Mirage, the famous comedic talk-show host Jay Leno will perform at the Terry Fator Theatre on March 18-19, and from April 1-2. Directly across the street at the Venetian during those same March dates (March 18-19) will be David Spade, known for his performances in Saturday Night Live and Just Shoot Me. Want to see an entertainer who has won Oscar, Grammy, Tony, and Emmy awards? Then I'd suggest you get tickets for Whoopi Goldberg's March 25th show at the Treasure Island Theatre.
A Sin City comedy show is a great way to cheer yourself after losing a few rounds of craps, or to celebrate your winnings. It's clear that Las Vegas features a great assortment of comedic performances to catch—after all, you can't spend all your time gambling!
