There are also comedians, presidents and lots of Billboard’s top hit music from the last 50 years. While the comedy is very clean, the new venue only allows 21 and over to attend.

“Larry g Jones versus Greg London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

OK, so last night (9/23/10) I saw Greg London at the Riviera, and the night previous I saw Larry G Jones at The Harmon Theater (Planet Hollywood), so I’ll make a number of comparisons between the two impressionists.

Greg London has superior “production values.” He has three leggy singing/dancing girls that flit around the stage, and a decent four-piece band (featuring a blonde, female lead guitarist). He has twin video projectors showing videos and stills at various times.

Larry G Jones has himself, a few props, and his light and sound man. No dancing girls. No video projection. If you just gotta have leggy girls then advantage Greg London.

Greg London does a better Elvis than Jones, but I suspect that the reason his band cranks up the sound so high for his big Elvis finale is that his extended Elvis weakens the longer he goes. You can barely hear it over the band, so you think he’s doing great. Tiny advantage London.

London’s Neil Diamond is very fleeting, and very poor. Jones does an extended Diamond (and an entire CD which I have listened to twice in two days) and it’s spot on. At times, listening to the CD, I forgot I was hearing Jones. Big advantage to Jones.

They both do a gag song parodying Tiger Woods. Jones’ is cleverer and funnier. Advantage Jones.

They both do Sammy and Dean. Big advantage Jones.

They both do the Temptations, but Jones switches between all four voices several times, spot on. Huge advantage Jones.

Jones does a duet featuring Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole, that’s incredible. Then he adds some Gordon Lightfoot and a superb Michael Crawford from Phantom. None of the above from London. Massive advantage Jones.

London did a decent Billy Joel and a nice Rod Stewart. None of the above from Jones. Advantage London.

London did an extended Ozzie Osborn, slurring his way through a costumed bit, which went on for a long time. He also did a “staggering-around-the-stage-stoned” Jim Morrison. None of the above from Jones. Huge advantage to Jones.

London’s show featured a walrus-like bass player who engaged in some bantering, comic chicanery and some singing. None of the above from Jones. Advantage Jones.

London did Tina. So did Jones. Jones has a massive voice with a three octave range. His Tina is incredible. Huge advantage Jones.

They both did Johnny Cash. London played a guitar, Jones didn’t. Jones’ Cash was much “bassier,” and gravely. Advantage Jones.

Overall, my take is that if you gave Larry G Jones the same room, and the same “production values” that Greg London is blessed with, he’d blow London right out of Vegas. As it is, his voice beats London any day, no contest, hands down. End of story.

“Only average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

Don't know why people say Larry desrves a bigger Venue, when the Friday we attended (after booking because of Tripadvisor reviews), only EIGHTEEN people turned up, to a very average entertainer.
It was a big waist of our Friday night in Vegas.

“Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2010

Go and see Larry G Jones. He is an amazing talent and his singing impressions are spot on. We had a great time and I agree with the review that says he deserves a bigger venue.

“One of our trip Highlights!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Larry G Jones was incredibly funny! We went with a large group (all ages) and all of us were laughing from the time he hit the stage until he walked off! Easily the best show we saw in Vegas! Do not let the small Venue turn you away! GREAT SHOW!!!!!!!! He should be a Headliner at a large hotel!

“WIFE & I LOVED IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2010

WELL.....my wife and her friends have seen Larry's show in the past so since it was my first time to Vegas she was the one in control! WELL... She told me that we were going to see Larry G. Jones and I went along.....WELL it was a BLAST! It's not just singing as an impressionist BUT alot of comedy in the songs made it so fun for everyone. Larry even sang to us for our anniversary (with some comedy) which made our trip GREAT!
He Connects with the crowd and it is a nice venue....
