Now in his fifth year at the Flamingo, George Wallace is sharing his thoughts on good eats, shopping at IKEA, gift giving and everything in between in his "I be thinkin'" show."I'm gonna make a restaurant called 'Aint Non of This S*** Good for You,'" jokes Wallace. His outrageous commentary is met with uproarious laughter from the crowd.Wallace started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1977 when he first stepped on stage at a Manhattan comedy club. His natural ability to make people laugh and his likeable personality were an instant hit with audiences. That year he continued to perform in New York and perfect his craft while living with fellow comedian and friend Jerry Seinfeld.In 1978, Wallace moved to the West Coast and started working as a writer for "The Red Foxx Show." He also became a regular performer at the legendary Comedy Store. Wallace made his debut in Las Vegas as the opening act for Diana Ross in 1982. Afterwards, he performed as the opening act for Tom Jones for more than five years.He was awarded an American Comedy Award for "Best Stand Up Comic" in 1995 and has been featured in a number of TV shows including "Seinfeld," "Chelsea Lately," "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Oprah." Wallace has also appeared in various movies including "The Ladykillers" and "Batman Forever."Much of the comedy from his show comes from his quick-witted humor based on interaction with the audience. He starts with a few jokes and then walks off stage and into the crowd to greet people."We're going to talk to everyone tonight," says Wallace while he moves from table to table. "I don't really have a show."It's not long before Wallace moves from talking about life in general to sharing who he thinks "need they asses kicked." Judge Judy is on his list along with a various other unexpected targets."You know she's naked under that robe don't you?" jokes Wallace.Apart from giving people a night of non-stop laughs Wallace also hands out a number of prizes. On the night the show was attended he gave away a $500 gas card, DVDs, T-shirts, a box of chocolates and $100 bill.Wallace ends the show with his infamous "Yo mama" jokes, where he indulges in more playful banter with people in the audience. There's no telling what he will say or do next.-- By Caroline Fontein

The only thing missing from the rock 'n' roll extravaganza that is Rock of Ages at The Venetian is the smell of marijuana wafting over the audience.Rock of Ages takes you back to the days of rock 'n' roll hedonism where big bands had big egos, big hair and played big guitar solos. So complete is the experience that for 90 minutes, you'll believe it's 1987, Ronald Reagan is president, leather miniskirts and jean jackets are cool, mullets are a fashionable hair style, and bands like Poison, Guns 'n' Roses, Whitesnake and Journey are climbing the Billboard charts.Set at the fictional Bourbon Room on L.A.'s infamous Sunset Strip, Rock of Ages chronicles the love story of Drew, a boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, both in L.A. to chase their dreams of fame (cue song).Throwing a wrench in their plans is a greedy German developer who wants to transform the Sunset Strip (and the Bourbon Room) from sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll to lattes, legwarmers and strip malls. Complicating matters further is the egotistical machinations of Stacee Jaxx, lead singer of the hit band Arsenal, who's splitting the band up to go solo.Powering the whole show is a string of  '80s rock anthems (more than 30) including "Sister Christian," "We Built This City," "We're Not Gonna Take It," "Wanted Dead or Alive," "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," "I Wanna Know What Love Is," "Any Way You Want it," "I Wanna Rock," "Oh Sherrie," "Here I Go Again," "Don't Stop Believin'" and many, many more.  Although Rock of Ages is billed as a musical -- it was nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical -- it's really an arena rock show with the requisite powerhouse lead singers, amazing band, loads of concert memorabilia being hawked outside the theater and beer being sold by the can in the theater. Just like any self-respecting rock fans -- the audience at Rock of Ages sings along with the songs, raises their (LED) lighters during the ballads and dances through the finale.Driving the whole experience is a powerhouse performance by the onstage fictional band Arsenal. In the Vegas show, Arsenal is composed of real life rockers Chris Cicchino (lead guitar), Andy Gerold (guitarist), Alan Childs (drums) and Dan Grennes (bass). Playing what amounts to a rock concert every night, Arsenal brings down the house with blistering renditions of your favorite '80s hits. Ladies, get your Arsenal groupie shirts now. No rock show would be complete without a lead singer (or two). Carrie St. Louis and Justin Mortelliti (Sherrie and Drew) bring the vocal attitude you want in rock star. But with this ensemble cast, the supporting performers all get a chance to shine.Jon Robert Hall as Stacee Jaxx is a potent combination of sleaze and sex appeal. But it is Mark Shunock as Lonny and Matt Meigs as Franz who slide in and out of scenes stealing the limelight with wickedly humorous moments.If you love big hair, big laughs, glam rock and a great storyline, this is one show you won't want to miss.  -- By Jennifer Whitehair

A celebration of Motown music's biggest hit songs from groups like The Temptations and The MiraclesSongs, including "Reach Out I'll Be There," "Baby I Need Your Loving" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine," are performed by Human Nature, a popular act from Australia.Human Nature consists of four men who sing along with a live bandIn 1994 Human Nature released their debut album "Telling Everybody, and it became the most successful debut album ever released in Australia.In 2000 the group performed the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics.Audience: Those who enjoy Motown musicVenue: Sands ShowroomGet ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and maybe even learn some new dance moves at "Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show." The show features the dynamic harmonies of Toby Allen, Phil Burton, Andrew Tierney and Michael Tierney as they perform Motown's greatest hits. Their uplifting show creates a night of exciting entertainment.Robinson first heard Human Nature when they auditioned for him in hopes of getting his permission to sing one of his songs on their new album."I grew up with Motown where the standard for talent was so high," said Robinson. "When I saw these guys I was blown away."Robinson not only gave them permission to use his song, but he became an instant fan. He said that what impressed him most about Human Nature was their ability to sound amazing without any special voice altering techniques, as used with many other popular studio artists today. Robinson wanted other people in the United States to have that same experience, which led to Human Nature being the first Australian group to have their own show on the Las Vegas Strip.Although audiences in Vegas may not be that familiar with Human Nature, they are one of the most popular acts from Australia. The group formed in 1989 as a doo-wop band in Sydney. In 1994 they signed with Sony Music and released their debut album "Telling Everybody" in 1995. The album was an instant hit, selling four times platinum and in the process going on to become the most successful debut album ever released in Australia. Human Nature released their fourth consecutive No. 1 album, "A Symphony of Hits," in 2008.As a result of their outstanding showmanship, Human Nature has performed as the opening act for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. In 2000, they had the honor of performing the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics. In "Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show," the four men, dressed in coordinating suits, perform all your favorite Motown hits including "Reach Out I'll Be There," "Baby I Need Your Loving" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" backed by a live six-piece band. Not only do they have all the soulful sound of The Four Tops, but they also have the catchy choreography. The men are constantly moving around the stage in sync with one another and the music.Between songs they stop to greet the audience. They explain that when they were young they always aspired to be as great as groups like The Temptations and The Miracles. Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience others.People watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several of these moments in the show when Human Nature performs without the band. These songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and his ability to perform in perfect harmony with the rest of the group.Aside from just showing off their fancy footwork and incredible voices, the performers also like to share their fun-loving personalities with the audience. During their performance of "Stop In the Name of Love" they ask guests to get out of their seats and learn a few dance moves with them. Everyone stands while Allen, Burton and the Tierney brothers demonstrate some simple choreography to perform in time with the chorus. Before you know it, the entire audience is standing with their hands in the air and singing along.Human Nature keeps everyone on their feet and dancing to the tunes of more hits including "Wait a Minute Mr. Postman," "My Girl," and "ABC." No one can resist the feel-good message found in these timeless songs and in the incredible show put on by Human Nature.

 Eddie Griffin
Eddie Griffin
Eddie Griffin doesn't just tell jokes, he has a message: Children are our future, God isn't religion and don't get a blow joke from a woman on speed, her chattering teeth won't do you any favors. Griffin doesn't hold anything back with his signature brand of "Comedy without a Condom."There's more to Griffin's jokes than amusement. They reflect his opinions on topics like race, religion, politics, fatherhood and being a pimp. Audiences at his R-rated show at the Rio leave with laugh lines on their faces and a better insight to the comedy veteran.With more than 30 years of performing on his resume, Griffin has no problem working the room. He talks to the audience while sipping a champagne drink he refers to as a "liquid blunt" and smoking cigarettes. Most of his jokes seem like prepared material, but he also demonstrates his talent for creating off-the-cuff comedy based on comments from the audience. Griffin doesn't spotlight people like  insult comics do, but he does address boisterous individuals who shout things out during the show. The intimate showroom means that even the seats in the back are close to the stage.Griffin got his start as a comedian when his cousin dared him to go on stage at a local comedy club. What was supposed to be only a three minute spot turned into a successful 45 minute on-the-spot stand-up comedy routine. Griffin realized his talent for performing in front of a live audience and purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue his dream.After only a month of performing in Los Angeles he became a regular headliner at the famed Comedy Store, doing impersonations and stand-up routines. Griffin's take on Andrew Dice Clay became particularly well known and landed him the opening slot on Dice's national tour and a part in his film "Dice Rules," released in 1991. Griffin also toured with Robert Townsend and The Dells in a 1991 music and comedy revue to promote Townsend's film "The Five Heartbeats."In 1992 Griffin appeared on "Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam" and the HBO special “One Night Stand.” The following year he recorded his comedy album, "Message in the Hat." He headlined his own special, "HBO Comedy Half-Hour: Eddie Griffin," in 1995. In 1999 he released another comedy album, "The Message," which featured both comedic and musical performances by Griffin along with Master P and Silkk the Shocker.Griffin has also had success as an actor. Some of his film credits include “The Last Boy Scout" (1991), “Coneheads” (1993) and “Jason's Lyric" (1994). He went on to star in his own comedy series, "Malcolm & Eddie," one of UPN's most successful and long-running sitcoms. It ran from 1996 - 2000.Afterwards, Griffin continued to land roles in films including: "Armageddon" (1998), "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" (1999), "John Q" (2002), "Undercover Brother" (2002), "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" (2005), "Date Movie" (2006), and "Scary Movie 3" (2003).He most recently starred alongside Eddie Murphy in the movie "Norbit" released in 2007. That same year he also starred in, wrote and executive produced his own comedy special, "Freedom of Speech."More than anything Griffin lets the audiences at his shows know how much he loves performing. Making people laugh is a natural talent for Griffin, and getting paid for it is an opportunity the comic doesn't take for granted.--By Caroline Fontein

Seeing a stand-up comedian can be great. Add some sexy burlesque dancing to it, and now you have a show. Sin City Comedy & Burlesque at Planet Hollywood offers just that. The show features a rotating lineup of comedians and burlesque dancing that dates back to the 1840s when the two went hand and hand. Many of the comedians in this show are recognizable from appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, HBO, "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late, Late Show" and more.
