Any insight on some good shows that you will not pay out your butt for? My wife and I have done a couple of the 2 for 1 shows and some have been worth seeing and some only worth the price of the one admission ticket. Just checking to see if there were any other good shows on the cheap that wont break the bank.

Sure. Terry Fator at The Mirage is a great show. Check for discounts. Almost every standup comedy show has discount codes in tourist brochures or availability at Tix4Tonight kiosks. Usu ~$20/seat or less. Check GroupOn for similar deals. Legends in Concert magazine coupon comes with free kids ticket or comp buffet at Flamingo. Other tribute shows (Prince at P-Ho, Michael Jackson at Rio) also low-cost. Have fun!

Terry Fator has a great show for all ages (my 5 year old LOVED him!). He does an awesome Elvis impersonation (vocally), it will knock your socks off! But I bought my Tix at a discounter (Tix tonite) and they were still like $40 per person, which is very much a bargain for this show, but double the amount of $20 that jared asked for. But in my opinion one of the best comedy shows in Vegas (Carrot top has nothing on Terry).

Depends on what you're looking for - I always recommend Mac King at Harrah's for folks - it's a rare midday show and it's a reasonable price and worth the price in my opinion.

I like the money saving topics! lol I have seen 5 shows that kind of fit your criteria: 1) Hypnosis unleashed (magic show) $30/ person, 2) Mike Hammer (magic/comedy) $23/person, 3) Nathan Burton (magic/comedy) $35 are all good shows. Even though they are not regularly $20 if you go to tickets tonite vendors you can get them for around $20. These magicians are top notch, not party magicians! lol Also 2 more shows which you may enjoy depending on your wife (what i mean is that there are scantily clad women or nudity, if your wife is the jealous type forget it) Raack n Roll (Topless revue) and Sin City Burlesque (comedy/burlesque dancing). My wife is not the jealous type and was a good sport about the partial nudity so she had a good time, so know your significant other before attending these last 2 shows.

Are Lance Burton and Nathan Burton related at all? Also, where the hell did Lance Burton go since his departure at Monte Carlo?

 n580564x replied on Monday, 24th February 2014

Hi Rockchick,

I don't think Lance and Nathan Burton are related (they look nothing alike), atleast not closely. Lance actually retired back in 2010, I believe he still lives in Vegas though.

The cheap booze, people watching and live music on Fremont street is my fave cheap show! Also the live music in the casino lounges like Mizuya at Mandalay bay, Casino Bar at Excalibur, Celebration Lounge at Tropicana, Lift Bar at Aria, Rush Lounge at Golden Nugget and Carnival Court to name a few

Keep an eye on Goldstar too, a lot of newer shows will run deal to get butts in seats for just a service charge and most of the shows are decent. I saw Marc Savand Hypnosis show on this deal and it was a solid show, I wouldn't pay full price for it, but I'd pay 1/2 price.

I really liked Frankie Moreno at the Strat, a good "old vegas" show with him singing at his piano backed up by a decent band, not sure what tickets are running right now but they should be affordable. The LA Comedy Club at Bally's usually has a solid rotation of comedians and are pretty cheap. Your best bet is to check Tix 4 TOnight and see what shows you both agree on.

If you appreciate slight of hand magic mixed with comedy, Mac King is a solid show. He does both very well and the tickets are cheap.

I went to see Vegas Nocturne on Saturday and it was incredible. If you have seen Absinthe and enjoyed it, you'll really like this. Both the show and the venue are excellent! And, even better, there's a deal for it:

 Hillybean29 replied on Tuesday, 25th February 2014

Thanks so much for this tip! My hubby and I will be checking this out in March. Love Absinthe and was planning on doing the late show just to get a taste of what it's like and then do the full show in July but this is too good to pass up. Thanks!!

 lewintn replied on Wednesday, 26th February 2014

Most welcome! And, all credit to Five Hundy for this tip, if you book the 10PM can stay for the short midnight show and for some dancing afterwards as it morphs into a club. What a great time! I see you are a Cosmo fan, as am I, and this is just one more thing that makes it the best in Vegas!

 Hillybean29 replied on Thursday, 27th February 2014

Like I said, we already had reservations for dinner at 8:30 so booked the 10 show! I'm so excited it's only 18 days away! I'll let you know how it goes but I'm sure I'll love it.

 chrisrobbins1980 replied on Friday, 28th February 2014

I'll be in town that same time!
