You may have noticed the recent proliferation of comedy clubs throughout Las Vegas. They span the Strip from Tropicana‘s LAUGH FACTORY to L.A. COMEDY CLUB at The STRAT. Head to Fremont Street and you’ll learn that Don Barnhart has moved DELIRIOUS COMEDY CLUB from Alexis Park Resort to Downtown Grand. And now, the laughs are returning to iconic Westgate Las Vegas thanks to COMEDY CABARET.

There are a number of reasons why comedy clubs have taken off in recent years. Their production overhead is relatively low, as are the ticket prices. The slate of headliners is constantly changing, ensuring that guests will want to return over and over.

Depending on the night, comedy clubs may showcase new talent, upcoming favorites, or household names like Jon Lovitz, Jamie Kennedy, and Pauly Shore. And earlier in the evening, the same room can host residencies for popular magic and comedy stars like Murray Sawchuck, Rich Little, Farrell Dillon, and brawny hypnotist/illusionist Chad Chesmark.

A number of top-level comics have lent their names to venues, including Brad Garrett at MGM Grand and Jimmy Kimmel at The Linq Promenade. WESTGATE COMEDY CABARET isn’t backed by a superstar, but those behind the scenes are stellar in their respective fields.
