Las Vegas Show Reviews

Rod Stewart by Sarah Jane Woodall

Young At Heart With Energy To Spare, Rod Stewart’s Performance Doesn’t Disappoint – Vegas once had a reputation as the place where popular entertainers go to die – the stereotype of the fat, faded star languishing in a leisure suit, warbling golden oldies in a lounge was sadly appropriate as little as ten years ago. The town has since gone through something of a rebirth, with currently popular acts making regular stops here – though we still get our fair share of the classics. Rod Stewart is one of these regularly appearing classic rock idols – but his show is about as far from the leisure suit/lounge shtick as you can get.

Kevin Burke: Mind Blowing Comedy by Terri D’Richards

Kevin Burke: Mind-Blowing Comedy Brings Hilarity To Hooters – Armed with a deck of cards, a sharp wit and a staple gun, Kevin Burke wages war on generic comedy show formats, creating his own unique hybrid style by reaching into a large bag of comedic/clairvoyant tricks in order to amuse on more than one level. The self-declared “world’s only psychic comedian” makes good use of an intimate venue, interacting with his audience and keeping the proceedings casual. His relaxed demeanor belies an ambitious schedule, performing “Mind Blowing Comedy” at Hooters Hotel Casino, as well as starring in the solo comedy Defending the Caveman on the Strip at Harrah’s.
