Las Vegas Show Reviews
Jabbawockeez by D.W. Grant
Jabbawockeez, MUS.I.C – Fun in a Figment – Banners on stage tout ôJabbawockeez. MUS.I.Cö as ôa figment of your imagination.ö This exciting song and dance showcase drags you into a figment, includes you in the madness, and then leaves you standing and cheering at the end of an amazing evening.
Louie Anderson by Terri D’Richards
Louie Anderson: Big Baby Boomer – Welcome to Louie-ville! û where down home mid-western comedy is served up in generous helpings by veteran comic Louie Anderson. A decidedly improvisational twist in AndersonÆs set lends an air of edgy unpredictability. Yet for all that, the comedian always remains firmly grounded in his roots: Minnesota, growing up in a big family (11 children!) with less than perfect parents and, his struggles with food.
The 100-seat venue provides an appropriately intimate setting for LouieÆs low-key, interactive format. Drink prices come in at under Strip price average, and the service is efficient.
