Las Vegas Comedy Headliners February 2015:
Las Vegas Comedy Headliners March 2015:
Venue: Planet Hollywood
Schedule: Wednesdays-Saturdays, 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m
I dare you not to laugh at the new provocative Las Vegas comedy show in 2015, brought to the Strip by stand up comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. To his new stand up comedy show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Jeff Dunham brings along his entire troup of puppets. Backed up by his buddies Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Walter the Grumpy Retiree and other ill-mannered and politically incorrect puppets, Jeff Dunham will surely light up your evening. Although there's no age restriction at this show, it's not a good idea to expose young children to some of the stuff that can be said during Jeff Dunham's show.
Venue: Terry Fator Theatre - Mirage
Schedule: Practically every day, at 7:30 pm
Age restrictions: 5+
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 2015 suitable for kids, although they do have a 5+ age restriction.
Location: Golden Nugget - Gordie Brown LIVE
Schedule: Every night except Sunday and Monday at 7:30 pm
Review: In two words, Gordie Brown is amazing! His performance in downtown is one of the best Las Vegas comedy shows in 2015. 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!
Venue: Atrium Showroom - Luxor Hotel
Schedule: Almost every night at 8:30 pm
Age restrictions: 18+
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 in 2015, 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!
Venue: Flamingo Hotel - Bugsy's Cabaret
Schedule: Daily at 8:00 pm
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 2015. 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.
Venue: Rio Crown Theater
Schedule: Monday-Wednesday at 7:00 pm
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 is one of the he 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.
Dates & Time: Thursday-Sunday at 9:00 pm
Venue: Vinyl at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
Age restrictions: 21+
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 at the Riviera hotel 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.
Venue: Plaza Showroom
Schedule: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:00 pm
Review: What impresses us most about Louie Anderson is that he is so different from other Las Vegas stand up comedians - he seems so humble and vulnerable on stage, complaining about his difficult life in a dysfunctional family where he was one of 11 children, yet he is extremely funny in his humbleness. His shows are always clean, deprived of any questionable jokes, and very enjoyable Anderson seems like a very nice person. His track records also includes charity work. Louie Anderson's routine at Plaza is among highly recommended Las Vegas comedy shows in 2015.
Venue: Monte Carlo Resort and Casino
Schedule: Nightly at 7:00 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 2015 are great fun for kids and adults!
Venue: Improv Comedy Club - Harrah's Hotel
Schedule: Daily at 7:00 pm, Sunday - Monday - additional 4:00 pm show
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 in 2015 are better than a marriage counseling - so much they learn about each other during the show!
Dates & Time: Every day at 8:30 pm
Venue: Showroom at The D Hotel
Age restrictions: 8+
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 2015 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.
Venue: Windows at Bally’s
Schedule: Every day at 7:00 pm
Review: Tony N' Tina's Wedding is among the most unusual Las Vegas comedy shows in 2015 - 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!.

Review: We all (well most of us) love and respect David Spade - the little guy with cute little boy's face who has made it big in Hollywood in the "big guys" world. David Spade is among top visiting stand up comedians who don't actually host permanent Las Vegas comedy shows in 2015. Spade makes use of a mixture of wit and sarcasm, and finds hilarious in the everyday events.
Age restrictions: 16+
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.
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!
Venue: Venetian Hotel & Casino
Review: Rita Rudner is among the funniest female stand up comedians, and a true pearl in the genre of on-stage comedy that is dominated by men! Rita Rudner is extremely funny as she delivers her razor-sharp punch-lines about life, aging, Las Vegas, being a woman and other everyday events. And she is easy on the eyes in her shiny dresses, even if we say so ourselves! Rita Rudner will have many Las Vegas comedy shows in 2015, see the schedule
