Non-stop laughs are in store when comedians Ray Romano and Kevin James take the stage in Vegas.
Think about your family, your friend's families, every family you know.
Aren't they all ridiculous, dysfunctional and certifiably insane? Therein lies the universal appeal of "Everybody Loves Raymond," the CBS comedy series that held America hostage on Monday nights for nine years. What silly disruption did the Barone television family endure that our own families might not have experienced?
By most accounts, the off-kilter slant on family life in "Raymond" sprang from Romano's stand-up comedy act, which he'd been developing since the mid-1980s. When Romano says, "We wrote what we lived," he means it.
Romano onstage is pretty much the same good-hearted schlub-you-love-to-hug that 33 million fans bade farewell to when the series finale aired in May. The TV show catapulted Romano from a relatively obscure stand-up comic to one of America's premier funnymen. Nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award, he has performed at Carnegie Hall and guest-hosted "Saturday Night Live."
In 2002 he lent his voice to the 2002 animated film "Ice Age," where he played Manny the woolly mammoth. He also appeared in "Eulogy" (2004) and "Welcome to Mooseport" (2004). In 2006 he revised his role of Manny in "Ice Age: The Meltdown." Romano returned to television in 2008 the TNT series "Men of a Certain Age."
In addition to his movie credits Romano has been a staple on the late-night scene, with multiple appearances on Carson, Letterman and Leno. When he's performing live, audiences get to see Romano where he's most comfortable, on a stage, microphone in hand, gently killing live audiences with his humor.
Kevin James began his career in stand-up the way many other comics have -- at an amateur night at a comedy club.
He first earned recognition on "Star Search" for his comedy act and then appeared on "The Tonight Show." His big break came at the 1996 "Just for Laughs" Montreal Comedy Festival.
After the festival, he landed a recurring role on his friend Romano's sitcom, "Everybody Loves Raymond."
It wasn't long before James got his own sitcom on CBS, "The King of Queens." The show aired from 1998 to 2007.
He made his movie debut in 2005 in the Will Smith comedy "Hitch." He then went on to star alongside Adam Sandler in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." His other recent film credits include "Grown Ups" (also starring Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider ) and "The Dilemma" (also starring Vince Vaughn).
