What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. And that’s a good thing when you’re talking laughter and it’s positive side effects. In fact, the impact of great humor can last longer than a vacation and extend beyond its initial audience.
Sin City is notorious for top notch entertainment and that includes amazing comedy. From stand-up and variety shows to magic and more, whether it’s straight up comedy or humor-laced productions, the non-stop entertainment in Las Vegas is a perpetual salute to the breadth and power of humor. So what better combination than launching a column about Vegas comedy on HumorOutcasts.com, a premiere website for all things humor?
I am excited to introduce my very first Vegas-driven comedy column focusing on the funny options for November 2017.
Why should you care if you’ll be nowhere near The Strip this month? Many acts are recurring, so you can take notes for future travel.
What if Vegas isn’t on your list of vacation destinations? I’ll feature comics and performers whose tour schedules aren’t exclusive to Vegas. And I’ll highlight some of the cool properties that just might change your travel plans. Plus, you’ll learn why it’s important to encourage comedy in your corner of the world.
What if stand-up isn’t on your radar when you’re in the land of Cirque du Soleil and Celine Dion? There’s always time and a myriad of options when it comes to adding comedy to your afternoon and evening. And I’ll be talking about the comedy style of your favorite Las Vegas acts and performers— like Cirque and Celine, and those you need to know.
Whether you’re in Vegas or just need to smile more, Las Vegas Comedy Month will help you prepare to let a little more comedy into your life. Here we go….
November 10, 17, January 27.
November is the month to give thanks for some phenomenal comedy and properties that are committing to adding a comedy dimension to their entertainment line ups. Perhaps the biggest news and best example of this is Adam Sandler’s upcoming residency at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. While the venue has welcomed comics to their stage, this is a first for a Cosmopolitan humor residency. Says Fedor Banuchi, Vice President of Entertainment, “Adam Sandler is the property’s first-ever resident comedian. In looking at our history, we’ve had the likes of Jay-Z, Adele, Coldplay, Drake, Amy Schumer, Bob Dylan, Dave Chappelle, Bruno Mars, country superstars, up-and-coming indie acts and everything in between – our roster is eclectic and dynamic, much like our brand. To announce Adam Sandler as our first comedic resident is very exciting for us and we’re thrilled to welcome him to The Cosmopolitan.” Get ticket information.
