THE IMPROV AT HARRAH’S: DEC. 31 – JAN. 5
The world-famous Improv at Harrah’s Las Vegas is the longest-running comedy club on the Las Vegas Strip. The Improv’s ability to showcase young comedians, as well as bring in big names, has attributed to its longevity and success .
Each week, The Improv showcases three of the funniest and freshest faces in comedy, creating a show that is always unique and definitely funny. The comedians who will perform December 31 – January 5 are:
BEN GLEIB: Best known for his regular round table appearances on hit show “Chelsea Lately,” Ben Gleib has been named one of “six comedians who could be the next big thing” by Esquire. Never a dull moment, Gleib fills his time with multi-facet projects. From “The Gleib Show” on FOX, voice-over work in “Ice Age- Continental Drift,” to working for The Oscars, hosting The Academy’s first ever “Oscar Roadtrip,” making appearances as guest correspondent on CNN sharing his comedic take on politics and frequent political discussions on NPR with Patt Morrison’s “Comedy Congress.” Gleib has performed his standup on “The Late Late Show,” “Last Call” and “Last Comic Standing.” A versatile performer, Ben is recognized by fellow colleagues for his wide range of materials and quick improvisational skills.
LAURA VALDIVIA: Aside from touring the country as a sell-out comedian, Laura Valdivia has appeared as panelist on VH1 and ABC Family, co-hosted “Train On” for the NFL Channel and guest starred on several sketch shows including “MADtv” and “Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz.” Most recently she was a writer on the 2009 MTV Movie Awards and was featured in the June issue of Lucky Magazine as a comic to watch.
JOHN CRIST: John Crist’s unique brand of standup comedy comes highly publicized as a Denver finalist of the 2013 Comedy Central’s “Up Next Comedy Competition,” winner of the 2012 Denver Improv’s Got Laughs Competition, winner of the 2012 Loonees Comedy Competition and finalist of the 2012 Comedy Works New Faces Contest. Crist emerged onto the national comedy scene in 2010 when he was invited to open for legendary standup comedian Louie Anderson on the Las Vegas strip.
Crist made the most of his opportunity and has since become a regular in Las Vegas, returning four times a year.
Shows are at 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Tickets are $29.05 or $44.95 (plus applicable taxes and fees) for VIP tickets that include special seating, an Improv t-shirt and post-show meet-and-greet with the comics. Special two-for-one tickets are also available for locals for the 10 p.m. show. Tickets are available at Harrah’s Box Office (702-369-5223) and online at www.harrahslasvegas.com.
