Harrah's Improv Las Vegas is a bit of a misleading title. For real Las Vegas improv comedy, you'll have to visit the Second City troupe at the Flamingo. This is Las Vegas improv in name only.
Perhaps you've flipped through cable, late at night, only to come to rest on the A&E - breakthrough comedians like Richard Lewis or Kevin Nealon performing in front of a stark brick wall, carefully working through their set list as the crowd roars with laughter. That's what Harrah's Improv Las Vegas is based on, the comedians lucky enough to make it to the stage no longer relegated to cable television, but able to reach a wide audience of Vegas tourists hungry for laughter. So there's not the possibility for disappointment that true Las Vegas improv comedy might breed - this Improv is the finest material these comedians have, and at severely discounted rates.
The price of comedy in Las Vegas, whether it's Rita Rudner, Carrot Top or someone at the fringes like Anthony Cools, can sometimes be steep - so it's a nice break to see tickets for Harrah's Improv Las Vegas to come at a reasonable price for a show that lasts around an hour or so.
Though the performers at the Improv at Harrah's shift constantly, you'll likely recognize at least one or two of them. Each week brings a new team of three comedians in Harrah's theater, each one at the top of their game and ready to keep you in stitches. As you might expect from something in Vegas shows, there's an age limit for the Improv, as the comedians are left to their own devices and allowed to discuss whatever subjects they wish. Thus, if you are under the age of 18, you'd better find something else to do.
The Improv Las Vegas opens its doors to two shows daily (except Mondays) at 8:30 and 10:30 pm.
Gaining fame on the A&E channel in the mid 80s, the Improv has long been one the dream gigs for aspiring comedians across the globe. And now they can take their act to Harrah's, which has hosted the nightly festival of laughs for multiple years now. Used primarily as a vehicle for up and coming comedians, the performers that you see here might not be stars yet, but they might one day be. Former Improv performers include the aforementioned Richard Lewis and Kevin Nealon, both of whom have gone on to great success following a shot at the Improv.
