Breaking down the lineup for Comedy Central’s Las Vegas mini-fest


The Details

Comedy Central Vegas Weekend
February 22 & 23, times vary, $40-$80
MGM Grand, 891-7777 & Mirage, 791-7111


Résumé: Insomniac, The Gong Show

Sense of humor: Observational

Example: “Nothing against jogging, it just seems that the joggers are always the ones that find the dead bodies. You never find a dead body when you’re eating a bag of candy.”


Résumé: Opie & Anthony, Leno, Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget

Sense of humor: Self-deprecating

Example: “I’m Irish. I’m not self-hating Irish. I don’t dislike other Irish people. But I’m sorry, I don’t automatically feel connected to someone just because their grandparents also had sex in a field during a potato famine.”


Résumé: Reno 911!, Pretend Time, Grandma’s Boy

Sense of humor: Boozy

Example: “Hanging out with a baby is like hanging out with a really, really small, really, really hammered person all the time. I find myself talking to a baby the same way I do a buddy at the end of a Friday night … You’re just standing over him going, ‘What’s wrong, dude? Why are you crying?’”


Résumé: Comedy Central Roasts of Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr

Sense of humor: Relationship focused

Example: “I once dated a girl who owned a parakeet. Oh my God. That f*cking thing never shut up … but the bird was cool.”


Résumé: Last Coming Standing, Comedy Central Roasts of Charlie Sheen and Roseanne Barr

Sense of humor: Insulting

Example: [To Jeff Ross at a roast] “You look worse than when I started this sentence.”
