Rich Little: One’s A Crowd playing April 13th – 15th, 2006, at The Orleans Showroom. Show Time: 8 PM. Tickets start at $39.95, call 702-365-7075 to purchase.

Reviewed August, 2005
by Nancy Hruska

“George Burns” started off the show at The Orleans Showroom recently, cracking a joke about the well-known impressionist Rich Little. “When I die, they’ll have to bury Rich instead.”

A native Canadian, Rich Little has been getting under the skin of and “becoming” celebrities and political figures alike for the last 40 years. Some of his impersonated victims include heavy weight celebrities such as Sylvester Stallone, Jack Nicholson, Arnold Schwarzeneger, and Clint Eastwood. But a lot of his voice and mannerism material comes from Baby Boomer friendly figures such as Dr. Ruth, the infamous Frank Sinatra, and even Kermit the Frog to name only a few of his 200 voice collection. Oh, and every U.S. President since Kennedy were certainly not spared by the “Master of Mimic.” Click To Read The Entire Review …

Spend Tax Day with the Sharks – Vegas Style! Bite back with tax day at Mandalay Bay! The IRS and vicious carnivorous fish – coincidence? We call it professional courtesy. To take some of the burden off Mandalay Bay visitors and Las Vegas postal workers on tax day, Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay and the US Postal Service are teaming up for the fifth year in a row to help taxpayers bite back. This year, on April 17 (due to the Easter holiday) from 12:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., taxpayers can mail their returns at the specially designed official US Postal Service Shark Reef Station and avoid the traffic and long lines at the post office.

As an added bonus, every taxpayer using Shark Reef Station will receive a voucher for one free adult admission to Shark Reef — North America’s only predator-based aquarium. Procrastinating taxpayers waiting until the last minute now have a reason to wait a little longer — and visitors to Vegas have a great reason to mail their tax returns during their trip – Vegas style!
