Top 5 Comedy Shows in Las Vegas

If you know anything about Vegas, it’s that we know how to have a good time. Maybe we didn’t “invent” fun, but we’ve totally mastered it. And one of our favorite ways of getting down is by laughing our asses off. It’s true, Sin City is home to dozens of resident headliners and too many touring comedians to count. And while you can’t go wrong with any of the comedy shows in town, to help you navigate the comedic landscape, we’re going to suggest the five best comedy shows in Las Vegas. Just be sure to pack an extra pair of underwear -you know, better safe than sorry.


Carrot Top
Luxor
At this point, Carrot Top is basically a Vegas landmark. The Bellagio Fountains and the Welcome to Las Vegas Sign are awesome, don’t get us wrong, but when was the last time they made you pee your pants with laughter? (told ya that extra pair of undies would be clutch) Carrot Top has been headlining at the Luxor since 2005 and the famous red-head continues to pack the house thanks to constantly changing bits, hilarious takes and those wacky props he keeps pulling out of that trunk. Sure, the trunk gets a lot of recognition (it’s basically his trademark), but it’s his over-the-top commentary and quick wit that steal the show. We wouldn’t necessarily say this is a family-friendly show, you know, unless you’re cool with that type of thing. Who are we to tell you how to raise your kids?


Ralphie May
Harrah’s
Country lovin’, Tennessee native Ralphie May has taken up shop at Harrah’s main showroom. May was launched into stardom after appearing on 2003’s “Last Comic Standing” and hasn’t looked back since. A natural funnyman, he’s a master at observational commentary, making his show the perfect place for a good time. But his witty, tell-it-like-it-is style of comedy might not be for the easily offended. The man holds nothing back, so we’re warning you. May will literally go to any length to get a laugh out of the crowd. He’s unapologetically himself, which is why we love him and why you’re going to love him too.


Laugh Factory
Tropicana
Do you know how hard it is to become world famous? Well, actually if you just spend decades packing the house with established stars and hot up-and-comers, it’s pretty easy. Pretty much, that’s all the Laugh Factory has done. So given all that, when Laugh Factory set up shop at the Tropicana, it obviously became the go-to spot for comedy in Vegas. Everyone who’s anyone has performed here, Louie Anderson, Milton Berle, Jim Carrey, Dave Chappelle, Nick Cannon, Roseanne Barr and the list goes on and on. The place is literally a “laugh factory.” Funny or na? Maybe we should just leave the jokes to the pros.


Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club
MGM Grand
It’s not every day that someone gets to open their own comedy club. So when Brad Garrett got his chance, he did it big. Tucked inside the MGM Grand, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club plays host to some of the most talented comedians in the country. Basically every night there’s a new entertainer on stage. Oh, did we mention that the club’s namesake has been known to perform there pretty regularly, too? So keep your selfie sticks at the ready. We’re not the only one’s who still use those, right?


Defending the Caveman
The D Las Vegas
Count us as people who don’t get the opposite sex. Luckily Kevin Burke is here to help break everything down. His show, “Defending the Caveman” at The D Las Vegas attempts to debunk the myths that surround the opposite sexes, like all men are jerks and all women are addicted to shopping. And there must be something to it, because his show has been packing the house for daysss. The show is full of jokes, insights and all-around solid advice. Which makes us ask, where was this when we were taking Sex Ed? It would’ve made things a lot less awkward.
