Las Vegas’ original comedy showcase, the Comedy Club at Riviera Casino & Hotel, is offering gut-busting comedy with new ticket prices that aren’t wallet-busting. Experiencing an evening of comedy with Jimmie ‘JJ’ Walker, Carla Rea and Greg Vaccariello, among others, now costs $19.99 with no additional fees. The Riviera Comedy Club also welcomes Nevada residents for only $10 with local ID. The locals rate is only available at the Riviera Box Office.

 

“The Riviera Comedy Club has long been known for providing affordable entertainment in an intimate setting,” says Mark Massimino, director of Entertainment at Riviera Casino & Hotel. “We have one of the most affordable comedy club ticket prices in Las Vegas, and with our locals’ rate of $10, we can’t be beat. The lower ticket prices should give more people the chance to relax, sit back and listen to two great comedians every single night.”

The Riviera Comedy Club welcomes two comedians nightly at 8:30 p.m. The lineup through the end of the year is:

Week of Nov. 12 – Kathleen Dunbar with Greg Vaccariello
Week of Nov. 19 – Mitchell Walters with Jimmie JJ Walker
