SNL Alums Jon Lovitz, Dana Carvey Stand-Up At SLS Las Vegas Has Potential

Equal billing doesn't always mean equal on stage. Dana Carvey seems as relaxed doing stand-up as Garth in Wayne's basement, with his great character voices from the Church Lady to Donald Trump. Jon Lovitz has only one: an amplified "wise guy" persona we know him for, but not the authentic stand-up voice he is trying to create.

Mirage Las Vegas: Review

I had been wanting to stay at Mirage since my Vegas obsession started. Mirage was the catalyst and now, to me, representation of the Vegas I fell in love with. My wife and I had three nights booked. I was fortunate enough to snag a two-night comp reward through MyVegas and we purchased a third night later. Checking in was a breeze and they had no problem connecting our room resets actions to ensure we didn't have to check out and back in on our separate reservations.

Gambling Legends:
True Stories and Amazing Facts

Our Gaming Editor - Vegas Vic - Victor H. Royer, has written a new book: "Gambling Legends: True Stories and Amazing Facts."

Gambling Legends: True Stories and Amazing Facts book cover

We asked him what it's about, and here's what he had to say:

"The crazy gynecologist was running through the casino, yelling and screaming and waving a Samurai sword. He was naked to the waist, and chased by security guards.

Meanwhile at the Frontier, an East Indian Fakir - it sounds like a dirty word but it's not - was trying to teach his Cobra snake to pull the handle of the slot machine.

Just another day in my town - Las Vegas.

In this book, I tell you a lot of these stories. Also profiles of many of the world's greatest gamblers, and their true stories.

I'll tell you about the $100 Man, about Mr. Briefcase, and about the Birthday Bets - among many others.

Plus truly Amazing Facts!

Did you know that it's illegal in Las Vegas to Pawn your dentures? Well, I sure hope the guys from Pawn Stars know that! Who knows - someone may want to come in and pawn their teeth!

Now that's different from just losing your shirt!"

This book is available as both an eBook, and as a printed Paperback.
