Sin City Comedy & Burlesque continues to entertain guests with a unique mix of comedy and burlesque not seen on stages since the days of Vaudeville. Comedian and Emmy Award Winning-writer John Padon’s vision of changing the landscape of comedy continues to be a reality as Sin City Comedy & Burlesque is now the longest running comedy show in Las Vegas. SCCB features an ever changing lineup of nationally known comedians and some of Las Vegas’ sexiest showgirls — it’s a unique blend of laughter and sexy.

In June, Sin City Comedy & Burlesque moved across the Mezz level of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino to The Cabaret. This new sexy, intimate venue provides the perfect atmosphere and old Vegas charm to compliment this unique show. Seating is a mixture of classic cabaret style with comfortable leather chairs, couches and cocktail tables; standard general admission seating — and if you prefer there’s plenty of room to stand at the bar as well.

Along with the venue change Sin City Comedy & Burlesque also introduced to Las Vegas the only rising comedy showcase on the Strip Tuesday nights called “Tease from the Strip” hosted by Comedian John Hilder. “Tease from the Strip” showcases many of Vegas’ rising comedians with an eye toward molding future comedic stars as they compete for a nightly cash prize. The showcase has been so successful in its initial weeks that it has been expanded to Tuesday and Thursday nights immediately following Sin City Comedy & Burlesque. “Tease from the Strip” has no cover charge and offers 2 for 1 drinks for locals. Comedians looking to participate in the showcase must sign up at the end of any showcase.

“Sin City Comedy & Burlesque has become a Las Vegas fixture”, said Pete Housley, Director of Operations. “The show is aptly named and the move to The Cabaret truly makes this a unique offering than a standard comedy club vibe. Tuesdays and Thursdays now offer even more laughs with the free comedy showcase – and of course buy one get one free drinks.”

Showtimes for Sin City Comedy & Burlesque are at 9 p.m. The show runs 7 nights a week. Tease from the Strip immediately follows Sin City Comedy & Burlesque on Tuesday and Thursday nights starting at 10:30 p.m.
