Tidbits and Teasers: The Palms' Strip Comedy Improv, House of Blues ZZ Top, Stratosphere Pin-Ups are Coming

Legendary Rock Entertainers: ZZ Top play Vegas
Dec. 5 and Dec. 7, you can see the enduring rockin' blues band who made "Cheap Sunglasses" and a "Sharp Dressed Man" famous at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Celebrating the House of Blues 20th anniversary couldn't be more festive with the humorous and deeply blues rooted guitar driven trio. Forming first in 1969, they have stood the test of time with their never-changing line-up. If it aint broke don't fix it. They even have a 2012 album release entitled "Futura".

New Pin-Up Show prepares for the Stratosphere 
The new "Pin-Up" show at Stratosphere will feature original music from the headliner Frankie Moreno, dancers and live singers. The star has already been cast and she's now in town living at the Strat, with her cat (according to their Vegas Video Network live broadcast). The star is none other than Playboy Playmate 2011 Clair Sinclair (who's also the Betty Page Clothing spokeswoman). The singer has been cast but mums still the world on who that is. The dancers are being auditioned and a full announcement is set to come out in December. The show is produced by successful one year headliner Frankie Moreno and will have a retro 40's "Bob Hope Special" kind of feel Moreno told me during a chat. Look for more about this exciting production soon. With all the success of the Moreno show, is it any wonder he's branching out in production? Why not stay all night for the double feature?!

Anthony Cools presents Strip Comedy at the Palms
Uncensored and Undressed Comedy
Billed as the newest "down and dirty show" on the Las Vegas Strip, and presented by long-time Vegas headliner Anthony Cools, this wild time is focused on Improv Comedy. Two teams of Improv Actors will begin the show in a battle of wits where almost anything goes. As the audience you can get involved by giving teams topic suggestions and also helping decide which team wins each round.  Kopy Kopatich who's the host and show creator has created a cast that has endured ten years together, and has traversed the country. They're first show was at the UNLV dorms. They've come along way baby! The show started at the Palms Lounge in November and is in full swing. Shows Wed.-Sun. at 8pm, 21+ $39.95.
