Laugh it up with the biggest names in comedy

David SpadeThe biggest names in comedy are taking the stage in Las Vegas this summer, so get ready to laugh like you've never laughed before.

How about a show about ... nothing? That premise made Jerry Seinfeld and his sitcom the top TV show of its era, and now he's bringing that same observational humor to Caesars Palace Aug. 19 - 20.

The "terms of engagement" for a great night of laughter with David Spade are simple - make your plans to see him at The Venetian Aug. 26 - 27. And you know everybody loves Raymond - you'll love his stand-up routine, too, when Ray Romano performs at The Mirage that same weekend.

Tracy Morgan leaves 30 Rock for a show at the Joint at the Hard Rock on Sept.4; Bill Maher brings his politically incorrect humor to The Orleans Sept. 10 - 11; and you can go inside the mind of Carlos Mencia at Treasure Island on Sept. 16.

Get your laugh on all summer in Vegas!
