The world-famous Laugh Factory will re-open its doors on Thursday, Nov. 5, at the Tropicana Las Vegas with Bob Zany headlining, along with Brian McKim and Traci Skene with two shows set for 8:30 and 10:30 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. Andrew Dice Clay will perform Thanksgiving weekend.

Like all showrooms during the Covid-19 pandemic the Laugh Factory will follow all the safety measures required including the mandatory 25-foot distance from the stage to the audience, and six-feet of separation. This new seating arrangement will limit the number of seating’s, so advance reservations are heavily suggested

Bob Zany is an American stand-up comedian. He is known for performing with his trademark cigar on stage. According to an article found on his web page, he "stuffs” a cigar into a plastic bag with a couple of Bob Zany original postcards and charges five bucks for the package. He calls it the Bob Zany Fun Kit. Zany's stage persona has evolved over the years, but the dramatic weight loss in 1991 caused the need for a major overhaul...along with the 175-lbs, he lost 30 minutes of his act. Bob spent the following year doing late night spots at Hollywood clubs, trying to "reinvent" himself.  He has appeared on over 100 national television shows, and currently appears weekly on the nationally syndicated radio program The Bob and Tom Show, where he has his own segment called “The Zany Report.” Zany also had a small role in the film “Joe Dirt” as the guy at the radio station who pushes Joe down at the beginning of the movie. Zany also appeared on the Comedy Central special, “The Friends of the Bob and Tom Show,” as well as the Steven Soderbergh film, “The Informant.” With all this experience the result is the cigar-smoking, audience-interactive crowd favorite Bob Zany we know and love today.

Rich Little will re-open his popular early evening show soon after the re-opening of the Laugh Factory, with new show dates and time: Thursday through Sunday at 6:30 p.m., which allows ample time for cleaning and disinfecting the showroom. The family friendly comedy magic show, Murray the Magician, re-opening will follow in late November or early December.

Harry Basil, General Manager, and talent booker also has announced that Andrew Dice Clay will be back with his always snap-happy, side-splitting, and a bit of nasty humor for the Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 27-29. The Friday and Sunday shows will be at 10:30 p.m. Only, while Saturday will feature both 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. shows. Eleanor Kerrigan will be the opening act for the “Diceman.” She will headline the Thursday shows at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m.
