    Great question I am curious as to which ones to see also. I have been to mystere, good but to long, been to the tropicana comedy show that was always good. Thinking about the Zumanity show this trip, will also do the comedy at Tropicana. Have tickets to Jeff Civillico not sure if we will make that one yet.

    Don Rickles (1981 & 2009). Jay Leno (1983). Not a big fan of productions, so we stick to comedians.

    There is a list of about 10 more we saw, but I wouldn't put them in the best ever category.

    Tough one. I've seen Rickles and Seinfeld in Vegas, both were great, but I've seen them both elsewhere too so I won't include them. I'd say the most entertaining show I've seen only in Vegas is Absinthe.

    Elton John's Million Dollar Piano, just this past October. Holy hell! I said it then and I'll say it again - this man has been famous and making music for longer than I've been on this Earth, but he is still amazing, sounds great and puts on a spectacular show!

    You must go to the season finale at Sam Boyd Stadium in May! The MGM races were OK, but the confined space takes away from the racing, I feel.
