Couch potatoes rejoice! There's now a reason (well five reasons, really) to turn off your TV and come to Vegas! Tune in to your favorite Las Vegas-based reality TV shows in person and possibly even meet the shows' stars on this tour, including "Tanked," "American Restoration," "Counting Cars," "Toy Shack" and "Pawn Stars."TV enthusiasts will spend 30 minutes at each stop, starting with Animal Planet's hit show "Tanked," which dives into the operations of the nation's largest aquarium manufacturing company, Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). Visit the 13,000-square-foot facility where brothers-in-law Wayde King and Brett Raymer create one-of-a-kind tanks including pyramids, kegs and cars for all sorts of clients, including casinos, churches and celebrities.Next you will experience some of the History Channel's most popular shows such as "Pawn Stars" spin-off "American Restoration," where metal artist Rick Dale, his teenage son and the staff at Rick's Restorations take rusty, old items like slot machines and gas carts and magically return them to their original luster. Cruise by "Pawn Stars" regular Danny Koker's automobile restoration and customization company, Count's Kustoms, home to the show "Counting Cars." And ogle collectible toys like vintage Hot Wheels and Transformers at The Toy Shack, owned by "Pawn Stars" toy expert Johnny Jiminez.Finally, visit the home of the History Channel's top-rated show, "Pawn Stars," featuring the family-run Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. You may even rub elbows with one of the show's stars such as Rick Harrison, Richard "Old Man" Harrison, Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison and Austin "Chumlee" Russell. The shop itself is packed with thousands of interesting items, from artwork by famous artists to Super Bowl rings.Note: The opportunity to meet and greet the shows' stars is not guaranteed. Inside tours depend upon filming schedule. Rick's Restorations is not included in the Sunday tour.

When audiences attend Tony n' Tina's Wedding, they're not simply seeing a show, they're participating in a show.Perhaps "audiences" isn't even the correct term, because instead of sitting back and watching a performance, attendees are asked to set aside reality for a couple of hours and actually become "guests" at the nuptials of Anthony Nunzio Jr. and Valentina Lynne Vitale, an Italian-American couple who come from two slightly dysfunctional families.When the two stereotypically Italian families get together at the wedding and reception, it's fodder for "America's Funniest Home Videos," complete with drunken guests (including the priest), family bickering, a pregnant maid of honor, bridesmaids with big hair and tacky red dresses and a flamboyant brother of the bride.From the beginning, the guests are asked to be part of the show by singing along with a hymn at the wedding.Then, it's off to the reception where a wedding singer and live DJ encourage everyone to dance to standard wedding fare like the infamous chicken dance, the dollar dance and "YMCA."Just like most wedding receptions, this one includes food. A buffet-style Italian dinner is served as part of the show. The buffet options vary depending upon which ticket type you purchased.There's also the bouquet toss, the throwing of the garter and the ubiquitous wedding photographer snapping photos at every opportunity. Guests can later purchase the photos of themselves with the family.Whether you choose to participate by talking and dancing with the family (who are all actors that are never out of character) or you just sit back and watch the comedy unfolding, Tony n' Tina's Wedding is a show that anyone who has ever attended a wedding can relate to.--By Kristine McKenzie

Great fun!

The show will keep you laughing from start to finish. Everyone has the opportunity to join in the fun, whether it's speaking with the wedding party or on the floor dancing. The theater is smaller and there are no bad seats.

Frank Marino sizzles in Divas Starring Frank Marino. After starring in "La Cage" at Riviera for more than 20 years, this Vegas icon is taking audiences by storm in his new show at Imperial Palace. During the 75-minute revue, superstar female impersonators portray famous divas including Britney Spears, Cher, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross and Beyonce. Marino stars as comic icon Joan Rivers and host of the show.Divas Starring Frank Marino opens with Lady Gaga's "Let's Dance." A female impersonator portraying Lady Gaga lip-syncs to the chart-topping hit while six attractive male back-up dancers help get the party started on stage. Wearing a short, white, patent leather dress, sparkling glasses and a blonde wig, this Lady Gaga has all the pizzazz of the real performer.Next, Marino enters to greet the audience and tell a few jokes.You won't believe what we have going on back stage, says Marino. We have Madonna, Cher and Bette Midler getting ready, and they're all shaving in the same mirror.As the show's emcee, Marino is sassy, spunky and stunning in his ever-changing wardrobe of extravagant sparkling gowns and feather boas. He puts on a different outfit between each act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with every entrance."This damn dress is made like a cheap hotel, there's no ballroom," jokes Marino after walking on stage wearing a fitted evening gown.People watch in amazement as each new female impersonator takes the stage. Although the performers don't sing, they emulate every aspect of the divas they're impersonating from their looks to their signature moves. A high-energy soundtrack adds to their exhilarating performances. Every act features a No. 1 hit from your favorite diva including Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," Britney Spears' "Circus" and Madonna's "Music." Some divas perform solo while other acts also feature the talented back-up dancers.Later in the show, an impersonator portraying Liza Minnelli brings audience members to their feet with his riveting performance of "New York, New York." His convincing dance moves and facial expressions make it hard to believe he's not actually singing.Throughout the show, people sing along and dance in their seats to the popular songs. Glitzy costumes, dazzling performers and a soundtrack of chart-topping hits - Divas Starring Frank Marino has it all.
