 Ray Romano and Kevin James
Ray Romano and Kevin James
Ray Romano and Kevin James are teaming up for a night of non-stop laughs in Vegas.Romano had plans to become an accountant before stepping onstage during an open-mic night at a New York comedy club in 1984. That same year, he won a stand-up comedy contest and started down a different career path.Romano made regular appearances at comedy clubs and on talk shows, including "The Tonight Show" with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno and the "Late Show with David Letterman." The Letterman gig led to a deal with the production company Worldwide Pants Incorporated, leading to the sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," which ran from 1996 to 2005.His hit TV show earned Romano nominations and awards, including a 2002 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy and the 2002 and 2003 People's Choice Award for Favorite Male TV Performer, and he shared the 2003 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.Besides having an award-winning TV series, Romano also tackled other projects. He headlined a comedy festival at Carnegie Hall, won and donated $125,000 on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and wrote the best-selling book "Everything and a Kite." He also released the CD "Ray Romano: Live at Carnegie Hall," with proceeds going to the September 11th Fund.Romano lent his voice to the 2002 animated film "Ice Age," where he played Manny the woolly mammoth. He also appeared in "Eulogy" (2004) and "Welcome to Mooseport" (2004). In 2006 he revised his role of Manny in "Ice Age: The Meltdown." In 2008 Romano returned to television in the TNT series "Men of a Certain Age" and since 2012, has made appearances on TV's "Parenthood."Kevin James began his career in stand-up the way many other comics have -- at an amateur night at a comedy club.He first earned recognition on "Star Search" for his comedy act and then appeared on "The Tonight Show." His big break came at the 1996 "Just for Laughs" Montreal Comedy Festival.After the festival, he landed a recurring role on his friend Romano's sitcom, "Everybody Loves Raymond."It wasn't long before James got his own sitcom on CBS, "The King of Queens." The show aired from 1998 to 2007.He made his movie debut in 2005 in the Will Smith comedy "Hitch." He then went on to star alongside Adam Sandler in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." His other recent film credits include "Grown Ups" (also starring Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider ) and "The Dilemma" (also starring Vince Vaughn). He also had the lead role in the comedy movie "Here Comes the Boom."

Not Everybody Loves Raymond
PostedNovember 15, 2013
A repeat of the show IO saw on Pay TV couple of years ago. Overpriced and overated. I saw 14 shows in Vegas and this came in at number 11. I saw better undercard comedians at comedy clubs

Don't blink, you might miss something. Actually, you might miss a lot. That's what audiences at V - The Ultimate Variety show will want to remember. This fast-paced, high-energy show features an exciting lineup of specialty acts from around the world. During the 75-minute revue you'll see about seven different acts take the stage.New performers are constantly being added to the show's roster, so you never know exactly who you're going to see that night. Some of the recurring acts include: dancer/ street performer Turf,  master juggler Wally Eastwood; the Skating Aratas; The Crazy Gauchos from Argentina Eduardo Lomé and Hugo Latorre; Ukrainian rhythmic gymnast Tamara Yeroffyeva; and comedian Russ Merlin.The show's variety format stems from the days when shows used to feature a specialty act to supplement the main production. In some instances, those specialty acts became the stars of the show. At V - The Ultimate Variety Show, all of those stars get a chance to shine in one amazing revue. The varied lineup makes this show a great option if you're traveling with a group and looking for a show that has a little something for everyone.Eastwood is both the host and a performer in the show. His infectious energy sets the pace for the whirlwind of talent about to take the stage. Eastwood has been described as having "the fastest hands on Earth," and it's easy to see why. He performs several different routines throughout the show, including juggling ping pong balls with his mouth and playing Beethoven's "Für Elise" by bouncing rubber balls on an electronic keyboard. Not only does he amaze, but Eastwood makes people laugh. His happy-go-lucky attitude paired with his self-deprecating humor is a winning combination.The Skating Aratas kick things into high gear with their daring acrobatic skating act. Performed by husband and wife Victor and Jenny Arata, their act is done on a small platform on an area of the stage that extends into the crowd. Victor propels the duo in a high-speed spin while lifting and spinning Jenny in the air in a series of awe-inspiring poses. The limited performance space, paired with their risky routine is nothing short of amazing.Bring your dance moves and hit the streets, 'Turf' from "America's Got Talent" hits the stage with his bone shattering dance moves. Watch as he glides across the stage and twists his body like you've never seen before. Once he starts his performance, you won't be able to keep your eyes off of him. Dressed in traditional garb, The Crazy Gauchos perform an exhilarating drum routine. They stomp their feet in perfect time to the upbeat rhythm resounding from their drums. They enliven the audience with their wild sense of humor.The mood changes from uproarious laughter to awe as Yeroffyeva, a former Olympic gymnast, enters. Tall and lean, her graceful movements enchant the audience as she demonstrates spinning a hula hoop on her legs or arms while contorting into various different postures. Her flexibility is mind-boggling.Merlin performs a comedy act with four volunteers from the audience. Each volunteer is given an outrageous mask to wear and assigned a different gesture to make when Merlin taps them on the shoulder. It's not long before the entire audience is laughing at the hilarious scene he creates on stage.If you are looking for a night of big laughs paired with an assortment of awe-inspiring entertainment, V -The Ultimate Variety Show has it all.

V for Very Good
PostedNovember 15, 2013
You don't need the multi million dollar input as per Cirque to enjoy a show. This was far more basic but extremely enjoyable. Great value for money. Book iut with confidence.

You can say we’re part of the King of Pop fan club. You know, we’re a bunch of regular Joes who’ve been known to bust out the moonwalk in the club, wear our hats ever so slightly to the side, and have one glove with us at all times, just in case our moment in the lime light comes. Normal stuff, right?If you agree, you’re speaking our language and will want to experience something jaw dropping: Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson ONE.” Yep, that’s right. “ONE” is all about the song, the dance and the mega-iconic man behind it all. In order to celebrate the uber-star responsible for earth-altering musical history, it’s only fitting that the lighting, sound, visual, and performance effects are all larger than life…and then some.Bringing a whole new meaning to “Lights, Camera, Action!” ONE stuns with much more than those three demands. This show is about as electrifying as it gets while the plot follows four friends on their good-versus-evil quest for solidarity and self-belief, the audience is able to follow along on the journey and dive into Michael Jackson’s vibrant world. Amplified, electrifying, and entertaining beyond your wildest dreams, we’ll just say that Netflix should never air this production because we would binge watch it on repeat for days on end. And frankly, we couldn’t stand the smell of that.

No one likes a bully, but you'll love Vinnie Favorito. He picks on everyone with his edgy brand of "equal opportunity comedy." Unlike other comedians who use pre-developed material, Favorito derives his comedy from his interaction with people in the audience.He started performing as a stand-up comedian in 1985, and he quickly became a regular headliner in clubs along the East Coast. He moved to Los Angeles in the late 1990s and started headlining in well-known comedy venues including the Improv and the Comedy Store. He soon became a highly sought after celebrity roaster.For some hilarious entertainment, don't miss your chance to catch this funnyman stirring up some serious laughs.

In a world full of uncertainties, in Sin City one thing is certain; all you need is love – Cirque du Soleil’s “The Beatles LOVE,” that is. Packed with action, gravity-defying stunts, and stellar visuals that take us back to the lucid, laced, lava-lamp days of years gone by, LOVE is the grooviest Cirque production of them all.Set to the re-mastered soundtrack of rock ‘n’ roll’s most beloved troupe of storytelling singers, The Beatles (obviously), this show takes you on a musical journey through the wartime era of WWII. And that’s just the music. With acrobatic feats, aerial stunts, and explosive choreography to boot, you won’t have to dust off that old black book to track down your psychedelics dealer; we assure you that your senses will be blown regardless.Performed in a round theater, and with speakers just about everywhere in the venue including in every headrest, this show brings a whole new meaning to surround sound for an unbelievable audio experience. And let’s just take a moment to mention the set. There are buildings, courtyards, a Volkswagen Beatle and more, the sets and props of LOVE are something to fall for on their own.Whether you’re a Beatles fanatic or were born yesterday (FYI babies are not ideal audience members), if you’re human, this is your chance to bust out those bell-bottoms and have a totally righteous night out on the town.

I saw 3 Cirque shows and this was the best by far. The only negtive was the volume and indeed that is my main crit for the Cirque shows I viewed. The bass was ridiculous and I work in the entertainment industry AND HAVE BEEN A SOUND TECH. Pity the folkj older than me who had to endure it..

Whether you’re a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll, Donny and Marie Osmond will have you dancing in your seats (or maybe the aisles depending on whatever you’re sippin’ on) with their 90-minute, feel-good Vegas concert.Singing together on stage for the first time in 1973 during a Las Vegas Osmond show, the brother and sister duo discovered their niche and hit the ground running.And while Donny got his start singing with his six brothers in the family music group, The Osmonds, and while Marie originally achieved solo success when her version of “Paper Roses” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Music charts, the two left their roots and joined forces in 1976 to host the ABC variety show, “Donny & Marie.”Still performing together today with every bit of gusto and showmanship that previously sky-rocketed the two into teen stardom, Donnie and Marie’s headlining Las Vegas show takes audiences back to yesteryear while simultaneously indulging onlookers with today’s popular hits.Since opening their show in 2008 at the Flamingo, their family-friendly concert entertains with high-energy numbers such as "Get the Party Started," "Dancing in the Streets" and "Knock on Wood” in addition to a new song, "Vegas Love,” which is off of their latest and first album they have recorded together in 30 years.Following the winning formula of their 1970s TV program by incorporating dancing and humor and performing most of their hit songs as a duo in addition to highlighting some of their career achievements individually, there is not a dull moment in this production.For Marie's turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, "Paper Roses," along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.She then takes it a bit slower for a moment when she belts out a flawless rendition of the operatic “Pie Jesu” but then heats things up with a mash up of "Walk this Way" and "These Boots Were Made for Walking," accompanied by male dancers and, of course, elaborate and dazzling costumes.But when it’s Donny’s turn to woo the audience, the set transforms for the performer who was always a little bit rock 'n' roll, and he appears out of the on-stage fog to rock his 1989 comeback hit "Soldier of Love."Donny, a "Dancing with the Stars" winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography in "Yo Yo" while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the '70s plays on a screen behind the stage.Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn't disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like "Puppy Love," accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years."This is the part where all of the women would scream," says Donny in the middle of "Puppy Love," which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. "I've still got it!" he proclaims and the audience agrees.Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like "Make the World Go Away," "Morning Side of the Mountain" and "Deep Purple."The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.The Osmonds have both starred on Broadway and they close the show with songs from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Wicked," "The Sound of Music" and more.Donny and Marie have been crowd pleasers in Vegas since childhood and judging by the fact that they're still consistently selling out shows, they'll continue to be welcome for many years to come.

 George Wallace
George Wallace
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

For all the sights, sounds and sensations of the Big Easy – without having to flash anyone – Orleans in Las Vegas has the Cajun charm to get your gumbo going.To start the parade, the Bourbon Street Lounge showcases live entertainment. Listen to bands and dance here nightly, just like you would in any little French Quarter bistro. And be sure to look up for the piano hanging from the ceiling. We're not sure how it got up there, but knowing Orleans it probably involved  bourbon and some feigned attempt at voodoo.Amid the floor-to-ceiling murals that depict idyllic riverboat scenes at Canal Street, eat gourmet delights (like Louisiana crab cakes) that you'd find in that other New Orleans. Get freshly shucked oysters and clams served with authentic Creole flair at Big Al's Oyster Bar. And drink classic cocktails to your heart's content at the Crawfish Bar, Mardi Gras Bar and Alligator Bar -- all of which boast a lively atmosphere with just the right amount of alligator.The resort is also home to the Orleans Arena. Hosting about 200 events a year, you'll discover top concerts, sporting events (including college basketball tournaments) and family fun (like Disney on Ice) at this huge venue. The Orleans Showroom, an 850-seat theater, also brings a stellar lineup of headlining musicians and comedians to town. Plus, lounge acts accompany the fine spirits and great beer poured in Brendan's Irish Pub. Yes it’s an Irish pub in a resort themed around New Orleans, but don’t let that stop you from having a few whiskeys in between your rums.In addition to live entertainment, guests can amuse themselves at the resort's 70-lane bowling center or catch a movie in the 18-screen Century Orleans cinema. Whether you want to catch the latest flick or fling some heavy balls down a lane, this Orleans’ entertainment selection is the best this side of the Mississippi. Adults will follow their bliss at the Spa Orleans, where you can be pampered by an array of soothing massages, body wraps and facials. While women get dolled up in the beauty salon, men will appreciate a haircut and good old-fashioned straight razor shave in the barber shop. And don’t think your stomach is off the hook just because you came to Vegas instead of the Gulf. The Orleans is packed with good eats spanning many cultures. Costa Cantina serves the spicy cuisine of Mexico. Be sure to try the tacos de pescado and chicken Azteca. Koji features an exceptional dining environment merging elements of a sushi bar and Chinese bistro. Meat lovers will want to walk upstairs to the second-story Prime Rib Loft. Although this restaurant has a stunning view over the casino floor as well as colorful murals of jazz performers, nothing beats its delectable cuts of prime rib. And those who really want to binge should check out the French Market Buffet, where you can savor Italian, Mongolian, barbecue, American, seafood, Mexican and Chinese cooking, along with items from an enormous dessert bar.The resort's exterior was designed to resemble the French Quarter, and inside the atmosphere oozes hospitality. An affordable place to stay, The Orleans is perfectly positioned near the heart of the action in Vegas.
