“1 Aging comedian, 1 ancient host, many racist "jokes."”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We purchased tickets for this show from one of the half price ticket booths on the strip. I go to comedy clubs fairly often and I don't require that they be clean or PC, but I do expect that there will be actual comedy included somewhere in the evening's programming.

The show consisted of two OK burlesque dances, a host who was probably pushing 90 and seemed to rely mostly on up the rear jokes, (as in, it should be funny if I just refer to it, without an actual joke in there) and one 50 something comedian whose act seemed to consist almost entirely of racism and misogyny. (We didn't really laugh the first time he called the blonde woman in the first row stupid, so he just kept trying that from different angles.) He ended his act by putting on a set of buck teeth and coke bottle glasses and affecting a Chinese accent.

The "VIP" tickets apparently mean that the host asks you where you are from and flails around trying to find something funny to say about it, and you receive a bag of popcorn. Fortunately, we didn't pony up for that. 1 drink minimum, well drinks are nine dollars, a bottle of water or a soda is four.

“Funny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Our show was funny with good, clean jokes overall. Purchased a Groupon online & enjoyed the show. Probably depends on the comedians, however, we enjoyed our evening.

Price right, comedians funny--nice show.

“Skip this show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Dont pay for vip. We didnt and were in the second row with vip in first row.
Opening acts were poor. The main comedian was funny. We had to pay $15 each and that got us a free drink with our coupon for buy 1 get 1. Wont be returning. Adult content.

“Sin City Funny”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great show with funny commedians, awsome drinks and popcorn!! Really enjoyed it for the money. The seating is open with a vip section and a regular section. On a weeknight save your money and get regular, you just might sit in vip anyway. The commedians played off the audience and were histerical. They are name brand guys and the one we saw was on letterman or one of those shows. Anyway I would recommend highly!!

“Must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Happened up on a buy one get one free ticket offer. The best comedy show I have seen in Vegas. Three acts and ALL were very good and intertwining. Everyone was in a state of constant laughing. Highly recommend this show.
