Emmy Award-winning comic Louie Anderson is the Plaza's resident comedian in downtown Las Vegas.Anderson recently finished a run with the ABC celebrity diving show, “Splash.” Even as he launched himself off platforms and springboards, he had comedy on his mind.“Diving is a lot like stand-up,” he said. “You can’t go back once you’re up there. There’s only a shame walk. I gotta dive into the audience or dive into the pool.”But Anderson’s career has been anything but a flop.He made his national TV debut on “The Tonight Show” in 1984 and since then has brought audiences to tears of laughter with his appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Comic Relief” and specials on HBO and Showtime. He hosted "Family Feud" for a time, and most recently, he starred in his own CMT stand-up special, “Big Baby Boomer.”Anderson has guest starred in sitcoms and TV dramas and was featured in the films, “Coming to America,” opposite Eddie Murphy, and in the comedy classic, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”With his autobiographical animated series, “Life with Louie,” Anderson became the only three-time recipient of the Humanitas Prize for writing on a children’s series.Among Anderson’s best-selling books, “Dear Dad – Letters From An Adult Child,” is a collection of hilarious and touching notes from Anderson to his late father. “Goodbye, Jumbo … Hello Cruel World” is a self-help book for those with self esteem struggles. He recently released, “The F Word: How to Survive Your Family.”Michael Pergolini, general manager of the Plaza Hotel & Casino, said that Anderson is a perfect fit for the venue.“We thought it was a great partnership to have a comedy legend like Louie headline the Plaza’s legendary showroom that has been the home to many stars over the years,” Pergolini said. “It’s great to have Louie here at the Plaza to entertain our guests and broaden the entertainment options downtown.”

The guy had our whole table laughing so hard we had tears
PostedMay 31, 2014
The venue left something to be desired. Louie was a little late and showed up riding a rented scooter. There were no special effects. Yet, once he was on stage the laughter started. We were laughing so hard we cried. He was on stage for only one hour. It was still worth it.

The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the sensational cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito,  who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling musci groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is a captivating experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

This was a good story and a good show
PostedMay 31, 2014
The only thing I would like to see changed - is that there are quite a few "f - bombs" in the show that took away from it being great.
The music was very good. The venue is very nice. The seating is graduated so that all could see. The action and special effects help to make this memorable. I definitely recommend the show.

Get 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.

These guys were good
PostedMay 31, 2014
I was skeptical of the Australian accents entering into the songs. But these guys have made it a point to sound and dance like the originals. It was an enjoyable show.

No, it's not your average bachelor's view of saying "I do." Marriage Can Be Murder is an award-winning interactive comedy and murder mystery dinner experience where the audience members become part of the show. If you liked the movie "Clue," then this is a dinner show that you will want to sink your teeth into.Anyone can be a suspect as actors are not readily apparent among the seemingly innocent guests. You might be seated next to another patron or maybe even the murder suspect, but only time will tell as the night unravels and more clues are revealed.Guests are seated at banquet tables. Salad and warm rolls are served first, followed by an entrée with your choice of chicken, beef or fish and cheesecake for dessert. DD, a sometimes ditzy and sometimes clued-in blonde, is your host for the evening. DD assigns some guests roles including doctor or pallbearer who are called to service each time someone is murdered."This guy has sax appeal," says DD as she stops by one male guest who looks like he would be a good fit for the processional band.Each guest has a game card that DD refers to as sleuth pad. The card has a space for your name and a place to write who the victim and killer are and what the motive is for each of the four murders that take place during the show.After the first murder, police Lt. Eric Post arrives. Wearing too short and fitted khaki shorts, Post makes the audience laugh before he even opens his mouth. He interrogates guests while consulting DD for some background information."This guy's name was Dan Druff?" asks Post."He was flaky," replies DD.The entire show is filled with funny one-liners like this as DD, Post and a few other wacky characters attempt to find the killer. After the main course is served, there's a short break where people can mingle, discuss the murders and get the names of other guests and potential suspects. During this time, some people get out of their seats while others chat amongst themselves. You can be as involved or uninvolved with this show as you want and still have a good time.Making murder a laughing matter doesn't seem possible, but husband and wife team Eric and Jayne Post, who star as the lieutenant and DD in the show, have no problem stirring up laughs with their comical banter. They created the four-dimensional theater concept more than 20 years ago. It's the longest-running dinner show in Las Vegas with more than 10 years of success."Guests keep coming back to see the show because they enjoy the interaction of characters on stage and in the crowd. Our audience members love that they are submerged into the action and with their reactions, each show takes on a different twist and turn," said Post.Marriage Can Be Murder combines comedy and suspense to keep you guessing through dessert. So get out your magnifying glass and detective hat for a night of mystery and fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

I liked the music. The male singers were good.
PostedMay 31, 2014
The males in this show were good. The venue left a lot to be desired and the seating (chairs) were not comfortable. Had this been a different venue, the show would have been much more enjoyable.

what is age requirement for Louie Anderson show?

I have a 16 year old.. can he see the show?
Yes. Louie's show was clean. While older people will be able to relate to more of the material, it is not offensive material.
