Adding a little levity to life is a worthy goal, and one that Vegas has specialized in for decades. So if you’re in the mood for to crack a smile and let loose with the laughs, head to one of the city’s comedy clubs or even a bigger show.
At The Mirage, you’ll find some of the biggest-name comedians in the Aces of Comedy series, which just kicked off with two Tom Segura shows. For a decade, it has hosted some of the biggest stand-up names around, like Jay Leno, Kathleen Madigan, David Spade, Ray Romano, Daniel Tosh, Gabriel Iglesias and Tim Allen, and most of those comedians have shows scheduled for later this year. This week, though, talk show host, author and sharp-witted comedian Chelsea Handler performs July 10, while next week Bill Maher hops onstage July 16-17.
At the Plaza, comedians are frequent visitors to the showroom, and the next shows are July 23-24 from actor and comedian T.J. Miller with his observational stand-up show, T.J. Miller’s Bulbous Uncle Tour. Miller has hosted Chelsea Lately, and was the character IRok in Ready Player One.
The intimate Delirious Comedy Club at Downtown Grand has hosted plenty of up-and-coming acts, everything from local acts to big names like Pauly Shore, who returns July 9-10. Also this week, host Don Barnhart is joined by Guy Fessenden, David Ryan and Ryan Cole from July 8-11.
Everybody loves Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand, where the big man himself performs periodically, including this week from July 5-8 with Darryll Joyce, Mark Eddie and Steven Roberts, who also perform July 9-11. Garrett returns for two sets of dates later this month as well.
Up on the second level at Tropicana Las Vegas, Laugh Factory has a great atmosphere to see a show. This iconic club, a sister club to L.A.’s revered venue, has been in Vegas for many years now, and draws plenty of big names like Jon Lovitz, who performs a special series July 13-17 and 19-21.
