Terry Fator

Terry Fator show Las Vegas

Venue: Terry Fator Theatre - Mirage

Schedule: Monday-Thursday, at 7:30 pm

Age restrictions: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: If you want to see something really unusual, choose Terry Fator show! Winner of the show America's Got Talent, Fator immediately received a five-year contract to perform in Las Vegas. And he deserves it! In simple words, Terry Fator is a Ventriloquist - he performs with dolls without opening his mouth. However, his puppets don't just talk - they sing! They can sing like Elvis Presley, Cher, Louis Armstrong, Lady Gaga and even Kermit the Frog, and we would say, sometimes they sing better than the original! This is really an incredible show - watch Fator's adorable puppets sing with familiar voices without Fator's lips moving. It's one of the most amazing Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016 suitable for kids, although they do have a 5+ age restriction.

Divas Las Vegas

drag show Las Vegas

Location: The LINQ Theater, The LINQ Hotel and Casino

Show Times: Almost every night at 9:30 pm

Discount Tickets

Review: Divas is one of the most fun Las Vegas comedy shows with female impersonators, or drag queens. This show has everything that makes impersonators shows great: it's witty, funny, the actors do incredibly believable impressions, they are excellent dancers and the costumes are unbelievable! The best part of the show is that this is a group of all-male actors performing female roles - and they do that perfectly - you won't be able to tell they are really men! This show is pure fun, and they even allow you to take pictures of them - otherwise, why put on all this make up?! The "star" of the show is Frank Marino who has been playing the role of Joan Rivers for over 25 years!

Blue Man Group

Blue Man show Las Vegas

Venue: Luxor

Schedule: Almost daily at 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm

Age restrictions: None

Review: The Blue Man Group is another amazing spectacle that you should see at least once in your life! In this hilarious show, three completely bald guys covered in gooey paint that makes them shiny blue, entertain the audience using various unconventional musical instruments, multimedia, technology, theatre and visual effects. Audience is more than welcome to participate in the show. The Blue Man Group show is definitely one of its kind, and won't leave anyone indifferent. Blue Man Group's Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016 are great fun for kids and adults!

Carrot Top

Carrot Top show Las Vegas

Venue: Atrium Showroom - Luxor Hotel

Schedule: Monday-Thursday at 8:30 pm

Age restrictions: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Carrot Top is one of the funniest Las Vegas stand up comedians, performing at Luxor. He's got a real talent to make your ribs ache with laughter, all the while having a great time himself! In his hilarious Vegas comedy shows, a red-haired a bit goofy guy better known as Carrot Top, demonstrates various props and objects, making fun of their conventional use or offering a new use for familiar tools, mixing all of that with some of the funniest comic remarks you will ever hear. He does not forget to make fun of himself either. Highly recommended!

Zombie Burlesque


Venue: V Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino

Schedule: Monday through Saturday at 8:30 pm.

Age restrictions: none

Discount Tickets

Review: The Zombie Burlesque is an entertaining mixture of Las Vegas comedy show, sexy burlesque and great audience participation. Located at the V Theater within the Planet Hollywood complex the Zombie Burlesque performance changes quickly from quirky jokes by the emcee to scantily dressed burlesque dancers to zombies bringing guests up on the stage. This is not your typical zombie experience of dead and grotesquely looking individuals of the underworld walking aimlessly around the stage. This is a show that will stimulate your senses, make you laugh and make you wonder how life really is in zombie world. This 75-minute show is open to all ages but there is strong adult language and partial nudity.

Review: The stage show Recycled Percussion is appearing at the Saxe Theater within the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino. This is a fascinating Las Vegas comedy show that includes plenty of music, noise making and audience participation. As the audience enters the theater guests are given drumsticks and an item to make noise with during the performance.Chaos & Confetti Show starring Recycled Percussion combines the rowdiness of a rock concert with the imagination of a street corner performer banging on pot or pan. This 75-minute show includes lots of choreography and videos that enhance the show too. Recycled Percussion is known worldwide and the four man group has performed on America’s Got Talent, The Carson Daily Show and the Today Show. The Chaos & Confetti performance is open to all ages.

Marriage Can Be Murder

Venue: Showroom at The D Hotel

Age restrictions: 8+

Discount Tickets

Anyone who enjoys a good comedy and a good detective story will get a kick out of Marriage Can Be Murder - an interactive criminal comedy at the D hotel. This is the longest-running dinner show, and one of the funniest interactive Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016 with hilarious characters - especially praised it the "dumb blonde" DD. The premise of the story is that you are a guest at a dinner, and you along with other guests and a few actors implanted among the guests, are supposed to solve a murder mystery. Of course you don't know who is who. The purpose of the show is to find the murderer and the motive, based on real clues that you can hear or see during the entire experience. Remember to always keep your ears and eyes open - you never know which conversation you overhear during standing in line, the dinner and even during the breaks.

Alibi Las Vegas The Show


Venue: Fremont Street

Schedule: Sundays

Age restrictions: none


The street is your stage (there are no casinos entered) during the Alibi Las Vegas Show tour and is an engaging excursion for all family members whether young or old.

The Alibi is an interactive Las Vegas comedy show starting at the Historic Fremont Street District and is designed to spark all of your senses. This adventure is an unbelievable improv comedy performed by comedians and actors strategically placed along the tour route; you will have no idea who is the real actor/comedian or just the innocent bystander caught up in the laughter.

As you are walking on this one mile improv excursion you will also participate in a scavenger hunt that further defines the theme of your improv. Half-way through your tour you will stop for a delightful lunch at an award winning restaurant as well as short rest stops at two bars (includes one beverage at each location) during this 2.5 hour excursion.

Vinnie Favorito - Winging It!


Venue: Westgate Cabaret, Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino

Schedule: Select days

Age restrictions: 21+

Discount Tickets

Review: Vinnie Favorito's show is not for the faint-hearted or those easily offended! However, if you like crude vulgar jokes and don't mind being the butt of some of them - you will surely have a good time! The biggest bully of Las Vegas, Vinnie Favorito goes after everyone - and he doesn't care if you are a multimillionaire or an Ethiopian - everyone gets the same treatment (or should we say mistreatment?) at his outrageously funny Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016. Favorito finds fault with everyone and picks on everything from your ethnic background and physical appearance to your line of work. So you don't know whether you should love him for making you laugh or hate him for insulting you! By the way if you really want to be abused, get front tickets.

X Comedy

Schedule: Thursday - Sunday at 8: pm

Discount Tickets

The “X” brand in Sin City is famous for its X Burlesque and X Rocks shows but now the X Comedy Uncensored Fun show is all the rage.

Eddie Griffin

Eddie Griffin show Las Vegas

Venue: King's Room, Rio

Schedule: Sunday-Thursday at 7:00 pm

Age restrictions: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: It seems all the cigarettes he smokes and champagne he drinks on stage during his performance at Rio have little effect on Eddie Griffin's comic abilities. Eddie clearly loves performing and will make your ribs hurt with laughter for over 2 hours show. Eddie Griffin demonstrates timely razor-sharp humor without being too insulting (but do not try to insult HIM, - reportedly, he gets back at ya quickly!). Eddie Griffin's humor is highly adult, and he doesn't hold anything back - but then we don't watch Las Vegas comedy shows if we are a little to sensitive:-) Rio Crown Theater is small and cozy, and all seats are good. VIP tickets might be a bit too close to the stage.

Defending the Caveman


Venue: Showroom, The D Las Vegas

Schedule: Daily at 4:00 pm, Thrusday and Friday - additional show at 8:30 pm

Age restrictions: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Defending the Caveman is a one-man show starring Kevin Burke that explores the relationships between couples. Against the background of stone-age decorations and using example from the prehistoric era, Kevin Burke explains why men and women are so different, why they behave the way they do and teaches us how to see hilarious in an everyday life as a couple. Some couples claim that his Las Vegas comedy shows are better than a marriage counselling - so much they learn about each other during the show!

Gordie Brown

Gordie Brown Las Vegas show

Location: Golden Nugget - Gordie Brown LIVE

Schedule: Every night except Sunday and Monday at 7:30 pm

Discount Tickets

Review: In two words, Gordie Brown is amazing! His performance in downtown is one of the best Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016. I know a good impersonation when I see one, and Gordie Brown is simply great. During his show you will see him as many celebrities and I am amazed how he manages to change his facial expressions so much so that one minute he is Tom Cruise, another - Clint Eastwood, yet another he is singing and dancing like Elvis Presley or Michael Jackson. Although Brown has a band, this is actually a one-man show. And boy can he dance and sing! And, ladies, he is very easy on the eyes, too!

Andrew Dice Clay

Andrew Dice Clay show Las Vegas

Dates & Time: Check Schedule

Venue: Laugh Factory, Tropicana Las Vegas

Age restrictions: 21+

Discount Tickets

Review: If you enjoy dirty, crude jokes bordering on the obscene, being made fun of mercilessly - then VIP seats - Andrew Dice Clay won't let you leave unscathed! Upon return to stand up comedy in Las Vegas, Clay has kept everything that made him famous - nasty jokes, nasty attitude, and of course his nasty nursery rhymes - although he does pronounce them only in the end. The main change, it seems, is that at his new Las Vegas comedy show Andrew Dice Clay has added many new jokes about getting old - after all, the actor is aging. We think that his Las Vegas comedy shows are more suitable for fans who knew him since he just started in the 80s.

Tony N’ Tina’s Wedding

Tony N’ Tina’s Wedding show Las Vegas

Venue: Windows at Bally’s

Schedule: Every day at 7:00 pm

Discount Tickets

Review: Tony N' Tina's Wedding is among the most unusual Las Vegas comedy shows in 2016 - and probably, the most interactive one. This is actually not a show, but rather a fake Italian wedding, where cast members mingle with the audience. They do, however, always stay in their roles and act like their characters even when they are not really "acting" at the moment. Did you ever imagine what it's like to be not "you" but someone else? This is your chance - At the "wedding" you will be treated as a family member of the bride or the groom - you can have a little fun and act like one! You will be also treated to a buffet-style Italian dinner, like at a real wedding. If you enjoy improvisational shows and being part of one you will certainly enjoy Tony N' Tina's Wedding - remember, however, that this is not the type of show to enjoy artistic beauty of the performance like at a Cirque du Soleil show - but rather it's a show where you can relax and have a lot of fun!.

Venue: Terry Fator Theatre - Mirage

Schedule: Check Schedule

Age restrictions: 16+

Discount Tickets

Review: Jay Leno does not need introduction! Although he made a successful career as a television host, Jay Leno still enjoys performing for the audience, and what can we say, he is a "natural" stand up comedian, and the public adores him. Please keep in mind that his Las Vegas comedy shows are not exactly for kids' ears - parental discretion is advised, and children under 16 are not allowed into the theatre.

Ron White

Ron White  show Las Vegas

Review: Ron White is a popular guest performer in Vegas. White has carved himself a niche in the stand up comedy genre as a hard-drinking, cigar-smoking know-it-all guy. His forte are observational humor and satire, so if you appreciate tough-guy type of humor, don't miss the show of one of the funniest Las Vegas stand up comedians on your vacation!
