Comedy Comes to Plaza Hotel and Casino with Comedy Works

Everyone loves to laugh, and comedy remains one of the primary conduits. Having continued to rise in popularity across the country and streaming services, comedy has also paved its own path in Las Vegas. While the Strip is known for larger productions, the downtown Las Vegas area is the place to go for smaller niche shows and stand-up comedy.

Comedy Clubs in Las Vegas

You can find some of the best local and national comedians in downtown Las Vegas as comedy clubs and comedy rooms are popping up all around the city. If you enjoy stand-up comedy, beginning September 12th, The Plaza Hotel & Casino has live shows every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night, featuring comedians like Jim Florentine, Kevin Downey Jr., and Nick di Paolo.

Variety and the Hollywood Reporter both selected Doug as one of the Top Ten Comics To Watch so get your ticket before this special show is sold out. 

Stand-up Comedy and Comedians

Stand-up comedy has become a favorite style among many for its witty monologues and hilarious stories. The comedic genre has gained popularity and prominence in the last few years from comedians like Kevin Hart, Gabriel Iglesias (Fluffy), and Amy Schumer. 

These comedians appeal to a millennial crowd and bring the art of stand-up comedy to younger generations. Some noteworthy comedians who brought prominence to the genre are Jay Leno, Robin Williams, and Eddie Murphy.

Stand-up comedy is one of the freest forms of comedy. Typically, it involves a set of jokes that the comedian will write that are synchronistic and create flow during their set. Stand-up comedy can have a reputation for being “hard-hitting” and sometimes dark, but there are many different types of stand-up comedy like observational comedy, dark comedy, and clean comedy. 

There is so much variety within stand-up comedy that everyone can find something they relate to and will laugh about.

Comedy Works at The Plaza

Stand-up comedy is often performed in bars, pubs, comedy clubs, and theatres, but the perfect place to watch a stand-up comedy set in Las Vegas is at The Comedy Works inside The Plaza showroom. There are tables set up in a perfect formation for viewing comedy shows and you can enjoy a drink while getting your laugh on.

Bunco for Breast Cancer: A Dice Game for a Good Cause

If you’re looking for Bunco downtown, then you’ll want to stop by The Plaza Hotel & Casino on August 10th for Bunco Night. Before you sign up, learn more about this popular dice game.

What Is Bunco?

Bunco is a fun dice game played in teams. The game is typically played with twelve or more players and is often played as a fun ladies night event. When you’re in Downtown Las Vegas, Bunco can be a fun game to play because it requires no skill and is easy to understand. 

How to Play Bunco

The game of Bunco is easy and fun to play. For a game of Bunco, players will need 12 score cards, 3 tables, 3 dice, 1 bell, and 1 fuzzy die. The game starts by ringing a bell and then players roll 3 dice passed clockwise during the round. 

The goal of the game is to roll dice with the rounds number on it. A “Bunco” and 21 points is achieved when all three dice land on the round’s number. The round continues until a Bunco is achieved.

History of Bunco

The history of Bunco dates back to the late 1800s when women, children, and couples would play the game. Bunco was introduced to the United States during the Gold Rush in San Francisco as a way for gold mine workers to gamble. 

Since the nature of Bunco is very social, it started to gain popularity as a parlor game and a family game. The popularity of Bunco decreased in the 1900s, but began gaining popularity again in 1980 and continues to gain traction as a fun social game.

Bunco for Breast Cancer with the Plaza

If you’re looking for Bunco downtown, then you’ll want to stop by The Plaza Hotel & Casino for a Bunco night. On August 10th starting at 6 PM, you can support breast cancer research while playing bunco.

What is Keno?

Keno is a gambling game similar to lottery or bingo. It is a game of chance that is based on drawing numbers that have to correspond to numbers on a card. Players choose numbers from 1 to 80 and then 20 numbers are drawn at random.

What is the history of Keno?

The origins of Keno can be traced back to China where legend says the game saved an ancient city during a time of war. It is also said that the funds raised from Keno helped to build The Great Wall of China. However, the word keno has Latin roots meaning “five” or “five winning numbers”. The game was brought over to America by Chinese immigrants in the 1800’s.
