2901 Las Vegas Blvd
Perfectly located on the far north end of the Strip as a bridge between the mega resorts south and the old school Vegas atmosphere of the downtown area just a few blocks up the street, you can’t miss the Riviera with its star spangled flashy exterior. It is one of the oldest hotels on the Strip and has been entertaining visitors and locals alike for over 50 years. One way the iconic hotel continues to entertain guests and locals alike is by hosting some of the funniest comedians around at the Riviera Comedy Club.
The 350 seat comedy club is set up after in a basement style with tables lining the theatre and a large stage with only a light illuminating the microphone. It has a couple of different formats, either featuring one headliner and two up and coming comedians, or a roster of four lesser known comedians. It is in fact a “stomping” ground for comedians at any stage of their career and has hosted a lot of huge names in the past. The show has a group of recurring comedians who perform on certain days of the week; these include Carla Rea, Doug Starks, Sandy Hackett, Mike Reynolds and Greg Vacariello. The lineup varies from one show to another, so contact the hotel to find out who will be performing on any given night.
