2009 WSOP Preview: Entertainers in Vegas During the Series

Las Vegas Strip

What with twelve comedians a’laughin’ and eleven magicians a’disappearin’ (not to mention six Cirque du Soleils a’soleilin’), there is plenty of entertainment in Las Vegas… all the time. Las Vegas is a stop on many entertainers’ tour schedule and when you are in town for the WSOP, you owe it to yourself to see who is passing through. I can tell you that nothing is worse than being in Vegas and discovering your favorite seventies band was just here and you missed them because you just didn’t know. So we have hunted extensively and found the lineup for those special shows that will be gracing and disgracing the stages of Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker run at the Rio.

This schedule does not include any of the permanent Las Vegas shows like Rita Rudner, George Wallace, Carrot Top, Penn & Teller (the Rio’s house act), etc. These are acts who will be here for just one or two performances with a couple of longer runs tossed in.
