We've enlisted comedians, some based here and others who spend their time on the road and come through Vegas, to share their recommendations on great places to dine in Sin City for a feature dubbed Comedian Confidential.
Comedian Tommy Savitt has been seen on WGN's The Bob & Tom Show, SI Tv's Funny is Funny, Comcast On Demand's Man up, Stand-Up on mav.tv and on JLTV's James and Sunda. He also spends time performing for troops at bases in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, Japan, South Korea, Bahrain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Curacao, Honduras and Ecuador. He performs Improv at Harrah’s through Saturday night. Here he shares how he get spiritual in Las Vegas, meets up with escorts after the show and more.
How often do you get to Las Vegas?
I go as often as possible for spiritual purposes. I find I do my best praying at the craps table.
Do you remember your first trip to Vegas?
No. I only found out about it when I went on Maury.
Do you have any favorite restaurants you like to visit here?
A gentleman always lets his date choose. After all, she's the one paying.
Do people approach you while you're dining out?
Mostly the waitress. I usually wind up disappointed when at the end of my meal she hands me a bill and then realize she's just after my money.
What about nightlife? Do you ever go out after a show to unwind?
That's when the real work starts. There are a lot of escorts who need to be saved, though first they have to be saved up for. The point is I do a lot of missionary work.
What was the first thing that shocked you in Las Vegas?
A police taser.
What can we expect at your show?
I provide life altering teachings. Hate your job? I can show you how to get fired. Addicted to painkillers? I can help you find a pharmaceutical better suited to your horoscope. Inadequate lover? I will help provide your wife with what she requires. I have a long list of celebrity clients whose identities I cannot disclose (including Gary Busey, Nick Nolte, and Lindsay Lohan.) Now is your turn to join their ranks. Namaste.
