2. Comedy Cellar at Rio
Best Las Vegas Comedy Club
Editor’s Rating: 5/5
Location: Rio Resort & Casino
Summary: The Comedy Cellar at the Rio is the best comedy club in Las Vegas. The intimate room invites a great atmosphere and the comics are always funny. Tickets are reasonably priced and parking is free if you’re driving.
The Comedy Cellar at Rio is the best comedy club in Las Vegas. The club is small and intimate, modeled after their world-famous New York City club. The room invites a great atmosphere in a dark, low-ceiling room, with tables gathered around a small stage.
I have visited the Comedy Cellar on numerous occasions and the show always features five comics, including host Mark Cohen. The shows lasts about 90-minutes and I love this room because it invites laughter. The last time I went, I saw Michael Yo headline, and by the end of his set, the whole room was howling.
What I appreciate about the Comedy Cellar is that they always bring in great comics. If you’re not a fan of one of them, there’s a good chance you’ll like one of the others.
Tickets are cheap, starting at $22. The Rio is Off-Strip but offers free parking if you’re driving. Otherwise, it’s about a $15 taxi ride from The Strip.
Overall, the Comedy Cellar at Rio is an excellent place to see some of the funniest people in the world perform live. Look no further than this club if you’re looking for a great night out full of laughs. I highly recommend it.
3. Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand
Best Comedy Club On The Strip
Editor’s Rating: 4.5/5
Location: MGM Grand Resort & Casino
Summary: If you’re looking for a high-end comedy experience, Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand is the place to go. Ticket prices are high compared to most comedy clubs, but that’s to be expected given the location on The Strip.
Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand is the best comedy club on The Strip, and it provides a high-end comedy experience unlike any other club in town. From time to time, Brad Garrett headlines, so check the schedule before buying tickets.
I recently visited Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand and had a great time. The club features a mix of local and national comedians, and while I didn’t see any household names, the show was still enjoyable. The show is just 60 minutes long, which is perfect if you’re looking for a quick laugh.
Ticket prices are high compared to most comedy clubs, starting at $55, but that’s to be expected given the location on The Strip. However, the atmosphere at Brad Garrett’s is top-notch and makes the price tag worth it. The club recently moved to The District near the MGM Grand Garden Arena and now includes a bar outside the club’s main entrance, which is a great spot to grab a pre or post-show drink.
All in all, I had a great time at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh on The Strip. Just be prepared to pay a bit more than you would elsewhere.

4. Laugh Factory at Tropicana
Old-School Comedy Club
The Laugh Factory at Tropicana is one of the best comedy clubs in Las Vegas. The show is 70-minutes long and features national touring comics and local favorites. Recently, the Laugh Factory has hosted comedians like Jon Lovitz, Jamie Kennedy, Pauly Shore, and more.
The atmosphere at the Laugh Factory is perfect for a comedy show. Low ceilings and dark, warm colors create a cozy atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re part of the show. I’ve also seen Rich Little and Murray The Magician in the same room.
The bar at the Laugh Factory offers affordable prices, which is always a bonus. The location is also convenient, as it’s right on The Strip.
If you’re looking for a great comedy club in Las Vegas, I highly recommend the Laugh Factory. The shows are always enjoyable, and the atmosphere is perfect.

5. Potted Potter at Horseshoe

Editor’s Rating: 3.5/5
Location: Horseshoe Resort & Casino (formerly Bally’s)
Summary: Potted Potter is a two-man improv show that pokes fun at all seven Harry Potter books in 70 minutes. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, and perfect for fans and non-fans of the series alike. Tickets are reasonable and there are showtimes available in the afternoon and evening.
If you’re looking for a change of pace from standup comedy, Potted Potter is the perfect show for you. It’s a two-man improv show that parodies all seven Harry Potter books in 70-minutes. The show is laugh-out-loud funny, and it’s family-friendly for all ages.

6. LA Comedy Club at The STRAT
Best Deal On The Strip
I like going to the LA Comedy Club at The STRAT to watch standup comedy. They always have great touring acts and some of the best local comics. The club has three shows a night, including Red Neck Comedy Magic at 6:00 PM and traditional standup at 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM.
The new space downstairs doesn’t have the dive-bar club feel the old location had. Instead, it feels like you’re at a show. That’s not a bad thing, just something to note. LA Comedy Club isn’t higher on my list of best Las Vegas comedy shows because of the location. The STRAT isn’t in the best part of town and is an expensive casino.
However, tickets are cheap, starting at $25. And LA Comedy Club has the best drink special in town–$25 all you can drink during the show! Thirsty? Then, this is the comedy club for you.
If you’re looking for an affordable place to see some comedy in Las Vegas, I recommend checking out the LA Comedy Club at The STRAT.

7. Tape Face at Harrah’s
Best Family-Friendly Comedy Show
Editor’s Rating: 3.5/5
Location: Harrah’s Resort & Casino
Summary: Tape Face is a family-friendly comedy show at Harrah’s Las Vegas. He was a finalist on America’s Got Talent. He performs without saying a word and uses simple household items to create amusing skits.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly comedy show in Las Vegas, I’d recommend Tape Face. His act is very entertaining and engaging, even without words, and he uses simple props to create hilarious skits that will have you laughing the entire time.
During the performance, Tape Face moves around the stage silently while pulling out props from his bag to create the most whimsical and amusing skits. If anything, you’ll be amazed at how cleverly he creates an entirely visual story with simple household items like an oven mitt. Tape Face will make you laugh without saying a word.
The show is inexpensive, with tickets starting at $39 and lasting for 90 minutes. It’s a family-friendly comedy show, but it’s not for everyone.
The only downside was that the drinks were really expensive. But, overall, the experience was worth it, and I recommend this show to anyone looking for an excellent family-friendly laugh.

8. Wiseguys Comedy Club
Best Comedy Club Downtown Las Vegas
Editor’s Rating: 3.5/5
Location: The Arts District • 1511 S Main Street, Las Vegas, NV
Summary: Wiseguys Comedy Club is a great place to see comedians perform in Las Vegas. The club features national acts and offers a great atmosphere for comedy. Food and drinks are also affordable.
Wiseguys Comedy Club is the newest comedy club on my list. It’s located downtown in the Arts District across from my favorite Las Vegas brewery, Able Baker. Wiseguys bring in a host of great national acts and supports local talent.
I recently saw Bryan Callen headline at Wiseguys, and it was awesome. Bryan is one of my favorite comedians, and he did not disappoint. He had the audience in stitches the entire show. I’ve also dropped in for open mic nights at Wiseguys and seen great (and terrible) up-and-coming talent in Las Vegas. It’s one of the only clubs helping grow the talent in Vegas.
The atmosphere is perfect for comedy. It’s a narrow room with chairs and tables surrounding a small stage. The food and adult beverages are very affordable. The staff is always quick to bring out your order.
The only downsides are the parking situation can be difficult during big headline shows (arrive early). If you’re visiting Las Vegas, the Deuce city bus stops right by Wiseguys, so take advantage of that! All in all, I’d highly recommend a visit to Wiseguys Comedy Club while in Las Vegas!
9. The Dirty At 12:30 at South Point
Best Free Comedy Show
This one is for the Dirty Birds.
The Dirty At 12:30 is one of my favorite comedy shows in Las Vegas. The free show features the best comics in Las Vegas, and it’s always a great time. Hosted by the great Gabe Lopez, the Dirty is the week’s highlight for many locals.
I’ve been to the Dirty numerous times, and it’s always a great time. The biggest names I’ve seen are Brad Williams and Bret Ernst, but my favorite local comics, John Hilder and Trixx, often grace the stage.
The show is highlighted by South Point’s great deals, including $4 cocktails. After the show at 2:30 AM, many people go to the Coronado Cafe for a quick $5 meal.
Make sure to put The Dirty At 12:30 on your list of shows to see. It’s one of the best comedy shows in Las Vegas.
If you’re looking for a good laugh, Carrot Top is the comedian for you. He’s been headlining in Vegas for nearly two decades and his show is always packed with laughs. His tickets are reasonably priced, too, so it’s definitely worth checking out his show when you’re in town. If you want to see a more traditional comedy club, the Comedy Cellar at Rio or Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club at MGM Grand are both great options.

How We Determined The Best Las Vegas Comedy Shows
I love standup comedy. I follow a lot of national comics and frequently see the biggest touring comics. I’ve seen the biggest comedians perform in Las Vegas like Joe Rogan, Whitney Cummings, Demetri Martin, Bryan Callen, Brad Williams, and so many more.
I know standup comics in Las Vegas that work some of the comedy clubs listed above and have ran their own shows in town. They’ve provided backstage insight on what makes a good standup show for both the audience and the comics. I try to visit a comedy club or see a headliner at least once a month.
Methodology: How We Ranked Las Vegas Comedy Shows
For me, there are a few factors that make a good comedy experience. First, the comics need to be good. Comedy is subjective, you may not like the humor I find funny and that’s perfectly fine. But for a good show, a club needs to have funny comics. Second, tickets need to be reasonably priced. Most Las Vegas comedy clubs are between $30 and $50, while headliners like Joe Rogan can fetch well over $50 per ticket.
Third, the room and atmosphere are very important. A comedy show in a convention ballroom is simply not as as good as a show in an intimate, low-ceiling room like the Comedy Cellar or Laugh Factory. Fourth, affordable drink prices are important. Loosening up for a comedy show is a must. Most Las Vegas clubs offer drinks for around $10.
I created this list with these key factors in mind. I also considered the location of the club, the availability of shows, and my overall experience.
