    Would like to see a good comedy show on my next trip to vegas. Have already seen Gordie brown ( who was fantastic), Menopause ( another fantastic one), Defending the Caveman (okay). Any suggestions?

    I really enjoyed both Vinny Favorito and Carrot Top ....however, don't go to either unless you can handle your comedy on the crude side (and obnoxious side as well with Vinny). If that doesn't bother you, you will laugh your ass off at either of them.

    I agree loved both Carrot Top and Vinnie. The chances of being picked on by Vinnie Favarito are extremely high. And nothing is off limits. Downtown at 4Q Mike Hammer does a comedy magic show that is really good.

    also agree with these guys both Vinny Favorito and Carrot top are good shows to see. For Favorito, I would not pay retail for tickets. Go to the players club at flamingo, they have a coupon for 2 free tickets to the show with the purchase of 2 drinks.
    Another good option is Brad Garretts comedy club at MGM. Always a good show there with some really good up and comers, sometimes has some bigger names but not necessarily headliners. Smaller venue and there isn't a bad seat in the house.

    Both are good. Getting picked on-high chance?

    Probably 200-300 in the room and he picks on less than 10 people. Thinking maybe 2-4 get most of it.

    May not be exactly what you're looking for but the funniest show in Vegas is Absinthe.

    Vinnie picked on a lot of people when I saw him in the old O'Shea's showroom. We tipped a little to sit front and center. We didn't want to miss out.

    I agree with both Carrot Top and Vinnie. Were the two that came to mind before clicking the link.

    As far as getting picked on by Vinnie... I've been at least a half dozen times, sat many different places, and never been picked on. I've had friends get picked on though.

    Players club at Flamingo has a coupon for two free tickets with the purchase of two drinks if you ask nicely.

    I vote for Carrot Top. And I say that having never thought I would enjoy prop comedy. But honestly, I was crying laughing at his show. My side hurt walking out of the theater. Seriously.

    Really liked Vinnie Favorito!!! Go see him, if you like harsh humor and don't mind a couple of insults and politically incorrect jokes, this is what you're looking for.

    I'm a Carrot Top fan. Seen him on every trip I've taken and it doesn't get old. His material is hilarious and actually the props are a nice change to the usual standup routine.

    I have enjoyed Carrot top, Andrew Dice clay

    Absinthe is the funniest show in town but its not only comedy

    On any weekend there always a few headliners in town.

    Interesting. I saw it a few years ago and while I thought Gazillionaire and his side kick were comical in nature (to the point of annoyance), I only chuckled a few times during the show.

    I wouldn't call it a funny or the funniest show in town. I would probably call it a fun show. But fun and funny are completely different, IMO.

    Carrot Top and Vinnie are funnier shows. YMMV.
