Today's side deal gets you one ticket to Jest Serendipity Improv for $8 (a $20 value). Jest Serendipity is the longest-running improv comedy show in Las Vegas. This Groupon is valid for one of the Sunday shows, at 4 p.m. or 7 p.m., in the Las Vegas Art House Theatre. Two teams of comedians compete for audience applause, which results in a sportslike atmosphere that is unrehearsed, unscripted, and completely reliant on audience participation. Kopy is the comedic DJ who hosts the show and acts as the referee of the "competition," awarding points to the funnier team and allowing the audience to decide the victor at the end of the performance.
Every aspect of the show is based on the audience's reactions and ideas. This creates a completely original masterpiece every night, and, by involving the audience, the comedians are able to connect with their spectators on a more personal level of absurdity. The shows are BYOB, which either means you can bring your own booze or bully your older brother, whichever is more satisfying.
Sin City Comedy hearkens back to the swinging 1960s and, even further, to the seamier side of the mid-18th century with a blend of jokes and sultry moves. Chosen from a deep roster of nationally known performers and funny-looking cats whose credits include Comedy Central, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, a different comedic talent headlines the stage each week with support from local and visiting stars on the rise. Between the acts, scantily clad ladies perform what the Las Vegas Review-Journal praised in 2009 as “witty, retro-sexy stripteases” with their own saucy sense of humor. The show recently moved to a plush new space inside Planet Hollywood, a theater whose neon signs and punkish metal spikes foreshadow the mixture of the glam and the hardboiled that audiences will find onstage.
Strolling along Las Vegas Boulevard, visitors seeking laughter end up at L.A. Comedy Club, which is located in the Windows at Bally's. Performers have included A-list standups such as Loni Love and Doug Benson. Before entering Bally's, visitors can gaze at the Technicolor splendor of the Las Vegas Strip and the nearby Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino, whose electronic replica of the Montgolfier balloon whisks comics back to their hotels after their sets.
Founded by Vegas natives determined to give visitors to Sin City memorable and true-VIP experiences, Party Tours Las Vegas sweeps guests up and down the Strip, in and out of clubs, and past some of Nevada's most stunning natural sights. Helicopter tours of the city, Hoover Dam, and the Grand Canyon grant sightseers a view usually reserved for birds, planes, and runaway Thanksgiving Day–parade floats. Affianced persons bid farewell to singledom with bachelor and bachelorette party packages, and various nightclub tours and crawls ensure revelers take in famous sights on a new fleet of party buses while sipping complimentary cocktails.
