From November 15 to the 18th, I’m going to Las Vegas to cover The Comedy Festival in its second year. Unlike Montreal or Aspen, this festival doesn’t focus on new talent as much on putting on big shows from some very big names. And best of all, one of my readers and a friend can win tickets to see three of the bigger shows - shows I’ll be at myself. (Don’t worry - you don’t gotta sit next to me or nothin’)
The first is Triumph’s Poopapalooza II which besides the Insult Comic Dog features Jim Gaffigan and Frank Caliendo on Wednesday Nov. 15th. The second is a Thursday stand-up show with Dave Attell, Louis CK and Daniel Tosh. And the third is Saturday’s Sarah Silverman and Her Magical Friends show (Weirdo and Beardo, better known as Brian Posehn and Zach Galifinakis). You get tickets to all three of these shows.
Now, two caveats… I ain’t got hotel rooms or plane tickets for you. This is just a humble blog so all I can provide you with a three pairs of tickets to some amazing comedy shows. How you get there and where you sleep will be up to you. But it’s Vegas - hotel rooms are there on the cheap for anyone who might drop their paycheck in a slot machine. Plane tickets ain’t so bad either, last I checked.
I’ll randomly pick a winner and inform them on November 9 so that you can make your travel arrangements (if you weren’t already planning on being in Vegas). If you don’t want to wait to see if you win tickets, you can buy them now by checking out Ticketmaster or The Comedy Festival’s own site. They have their own contest too if you want to double your chances.
