Fun(ny) facts that we betcha didn’t know

They say laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, our initial thought on that is that “they” clearly have never indulged in a neat Macallan 18 on the rocks but perhaps “they” formulated their opinion after experiencing Vegas’ comedy circuit and, in that case, we can give them a pass on the aforementioned (more whiskey for us, right?).

Yes, here in Vegas we are good for much more than our buxom beauties and bottomless… drinks. As a matter of fact, we are apparently a medical hub that heals with the laughter induced by of some of the world’s most renowned comedians. And while hundreds of famed performers from Lisa Lampanelli and Eddie Izzard to D.L. Hughley and Jay Leno flock to the Entertainment Capital of the World (yes, that’s Vegas) to stir up laughs on a regular basis, our sparkling city is the permanent home to a hilarious collection of resident performers that definitely know how to trigger the chuckles.

So yes, whiskey does indeed fade away the blues (you’ll see that Carrot Top knows a thing or two about this), but we will give it to “them” that laughter is a legal high that we are definitely addicted to. So, if you’re feeling down, come to Vegas and get high on life without even having to visit the doctor. Read on for some fun(ny) facts about some of Vegas’ resident comedians that we betcha didn’t know.

Trading one desert for another, I moved to Las Vegas from Arizona nearly three years ago. It was something about the sparkling lights and the all-encompassing entertainment factor that persuaded me to swap cacti for casinos and dry heat for well…even drier heat. And while I do love a good show, I will always keep true to my country girl ways seeing that I am an absolute sucker for a good country concert and will always indulge the opportunity to go out country dancing! But in a city that undoubtedly has some of the world’s best cuisine, a wild assortment of endless experiences, and of course phenomenal shows, Vegas certainly has that unparalleled good time vibe that can make a city slicker out of just about anyone… including myself!
