While music and dance shows are certainly popular pleasers for the Vegas crowd, many prefer to sit back and laugh as they watch a hilarious comedy show. Those who consider themselves this type of person should consider the Kevin James and Ray Romano comedy show. Bringing two popular sitcom stars to the live stage, this show will offer guests a good time, as well as a chance to see some famous celebrities in action.
Kevin James was made popular by his sitcom, The King of Queens, which airs on CBS. Playing the lead character of Doug, James also does work with writing and producing, and has starred in numerous films, such as I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Before his big and small screen debuts, James made a name for himself performing stand-up comedy, and appears that is what he has returned to.
Ray Romano has become a household name due to the popular television series, Everybody Loves Raymond. In addition to acting on the show, Romano was also a contributing writer, as much of the material was based on his stand-up comedy performances. Moving from stand-up to television was the first step, but Romano was able to launch himself onto the big screen as well, at least by voice. He voices one of the main characters in the Ice Age films, and has recently started a new television series.
These two have been referred to as kings of comedy for their mainstream success and appeal, and for the first time they are coming together to put on a single show. Comedians have teamed up in the past, but none with the amount of success that James and Romano have experienced in the world of comedy.
The Kevin James and Ray Romano comedy show is available at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, at the comfortable Terry Fator Theatre. Those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and children under five are not allowed in at all. Comedy for the stage tends to be much racier than that on TV, so parental discretion is advised.
Tickets can be purchased online or by phone, and range from $99.99 to $119.99, plus taxes and service charges. Wheelchair accessible seating is available, but only by phone, and not through online orders. Those looking to combine the night of comedy with a nice dinner can get a package deal including both dinner and the show.
