Stand-up comedy has been experiencing somewhat of a boom in the last half-decade. With the new podcasting trend and social media, comedians are able to promote themselves like never before and shout from their soapbox far and wide. Live comedy is a unique experience and should not be overlooked when planning an awesome weekend. Going to see a comic perform is one the of the perfect pregame strategies. Vegas has been lagging behind comedy hubs like LA, New York and Austin when it comes to a true grassroots comedy scene, opting for resident comic shows like Carrot Top and the like. That is no longer the case with tons of speciliazed comey venues opening up and many live rooms booking comedy talent.
