Seen Around Town: Journey Visits LVA, Fast and the Furious Star Hits DTLV

So you enjoy the celebrity sightings? You came to the right city. Las Vegas is about to get ridiculous with famous people—all levels of famous. Between Downtown’s Crapshoot Comedy Festival, the XS Nightclub 8 Year Anniversary, and Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, you’re going to be happy you live here.

Crapshoot Comedy Is Here

Speaking of the Crapshoot fest, have you wondered how a comedian prepares to hit the stage in Las Vegas? Pretty much the same way we all prepare for high pressure situations: with alcohol.

Comedian/actor/podcast host Bert Kreischer posted a video to Instagram on Wednesday, in which he announced “the beginning of a bender” ahead of his Thursday morning flight to Las Vegas.

Starting a bender!!!

“Get ready, the next three days are gonna be fucking insane,” he warned. “If you’re my daughter do not watch the next three days.”

Kreischer will host his BERTCAST podcast live at Backstage Bar & Billiards on Friday night, followed by a standup set at Fremont Country Club.

Other comedians on the Crapshoot bill include and Joel Kim Booster, Jenny Zigrino, and all-timer Dave Attell.

You might have spotted another all-time comedian on the Strip this last week. Andrew Dice Clay was at Tropicana Las Vegas with the crew of his Showtime series Dice. The comic performed to a sold out crowd Saturday night that included actors James Woods (The Boost), Kevin Corrigan (Big Fan), and Mike Starr (On Deadly Ground).

 

SUNDAY 14

Noel Gugliemi, who plays Hector in the Fast and Furious film franchise, stopped by Downtown’s Nerd Bar on Sunday night.

The actor, who has made appearances in everything from Training Day to The Walking Dead to The Dark Knight Rises, posed with a replica Jabba the Hutt cosplay prop inside the bar.

TUESDAY 16

Ever wonder what really attractive thin people eat? Reality television personality and soon-to-be Vegas headliner Kendra Wilkinson was spotted at Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas on Tuesday, where she enjoyed a cobb salad with no bacon and a side of Gilroy garlic fries.

Wilkinson will debut her “Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” show with co-star Jai Rodriguez on Saturday, May 27.

 WEDNESDAY 17

Students at Las Vegas Academy of the Arts learned about life in a legendary rock band when Journey bass player Ross Valory and keyboard player Jonathan Cain stopped by their school on Wednesday.

The musicians took part in a Q&A session, and then everyone joined in to sing “Don’t Stop Believin’.”

Lucky kids.
