I'm a college student who spent my New Year's break in Phoenix with my cousin. We decided to go to Vegas on New Year's Day. We used the American Casino's Guide 2013 to get 2 tickets for a very inexpensive $20 (compared to the other Vegas shows) with no fee nor tax. I also got the coupon of $15 for the $25 VIP ticket (ask for it at the front desk or the box office), which I tried to stack with the 2-for-1 offer but of course was turned down (worth a shot though).
We waited in line for about 20 minutes, primarily because there was an usher who led each person/group to their seats; I guess audience placement is important for this kind of thing. We atched some America's Funniest Home Videos while we waited for Mike to begin the show.
All in all, this was a $20 very well spent, since there was no moment in the show when it stopped being entertaining. You can rest assured that Mike made fun of every single audience participants, but they were all in good fun. He (cheekily) hit on the women who joined him on stage, but it remained kid-friendly since I doubt they caught on it.
It helped that he was VERY quick-witted, and sarcastic, and catty in the best way. At the beginning I thought some of the audience members were plants because his off-the-cuff quips about them seemed so effortless -- just to name a few: he made fun of a guy's age, the dress a girl wore, and even the exotic names of some of the audience members, all delivered in lines that were original, and brilliant, and in good fun. However, when I was called to participate, all that doubt disappeared as he made fun of me with rapid-fire jokes, and I was so nervous that the only thing that I could remember was his "tall Asian" comment and the way he made fun of me saying my name: "err Kyle" (get it?).
I would say that I would believe Mike to be a *fabulous* gay guy if not for the fact that he hit on the women (if that was for show, I'd never know). Honestly, I never thought straight people (much less a straight guy) could be this funny, sarcastic, and wonderfully catty until I saw this show. I doubt that I will visit Vegas any time soon -- no other place could be as headache-inducing as this place -- but I will definitely pay to go to the show again if I had the chance. Perhaps Mike should do a college tour in the future (hint hint).
There was a bar near the stage, and the show ran for an hour and 15 minutes. We originally planned to go to the Riviera for the free comedy show (thanks to the American Casino's Guide coupon) but Mike's show easily exceeded the "comedy quota" for the night, we went to a nearby casino for a $20 buffet, which was horrendous, and explains why I forgot the name of it.
