    What would you say is the best comedy club/comedian? I do love my comedy and have seen some of the best in the business when they come across to Edinburgh for the Fringe but was just curious about who was about in Vegas.

    A lot of people make fun of Carrot Top, but the guy actually does make me laugh once in awhile with some of his absurdity. He throws everything including the kitchen sink at the wall and once in awhile something does stick. Of course I've never seen him doing anything more than those 3-4 minute specials on Letterman or something. Not sure if he keeps that pace up for 30-60 minutes or however long his set is.

    *ducks*

    swrdy, I believe in your other post you said you'd be there starting May 12th? If so, darn! you could've seen Wayne Brady! He always gets me laughing on the Who's Line Is It Anyway show. There's always the Riviera Comedy Club at the Riviera.

    Whose Line is class and I'm sad to be missing a fine comedian as Wayne. Carrot Top is certainly not my type of comedian unfortunately but everyone to their own. We have some free nights so will check to see who is about and available.

    Carrot Top is not one of my favorites to say the least... Anyways, let us know how things go.

    How about the Amazing Johnathan. I saw him on Comedy Central and thought he was pretty good. Kind of a standup/magic show mish mash. I believe he's in the Congo Room at the Sahara.

    Here's a YouTube clip of him surrounded by people with bad hair. A lot of this material was used on the CC show I had seen. The whole dollar bill gag is gold, Jerry! Gold!

    Thats some funny sh*! JRC. You even got the seinfeld quips down. If you like Johnathan's bit you best see him. I hear this is his last year, he's retiring.

    Any chance I see to quote Kenny Bania, I grab it.

    I didn't know the Amazing Johnathan is retiring. That sucks.

    I didn't know either that AJ is retiring but just glad that I have tickets to go see him as he is world class.

    Go and see The Amazing jonathan and Carrot Top, both excellent and well worth it.

    I've got my tickets for AJ as he is the first we are going to see but Carrot Top is not my style. We have a couple of free nights so will keep an eye on the list for The Improv to see if there is anyone I might like to see.
