Comedian Bill Maher, and Tommy Savitt, the comedian behind “Tommy Lama”, guest on Las Vegas Backstage Talk radio show with Comedian Michele LaFong.

Bill has set the boundaries of political humor on what is just about allowed on American television, yet still manages to push the envelope on a frequent basis. His combination of unflinching honesty and blunt observations have earned him a staggering 23 Emmy nominations, a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, and he will be showing off his stuff as he hits the Terry Fator Theatre at The Mirage in Las Vegas , NV , September 8 & 9.

Particularly known for his hugely critical views on religion, Maher’s humor squares to the left of center, and has more often than not set his cross-hairs on the right-wing political movement (particularly the Tea Party), and shows a vociferous support for universal health care, same-sex marriage and environmentalism. However, since the events of 9/11, he has supported racial profiling at transport hubs, and is a supporter of gun rights.

As well as his long-running television panel show Real Time With Bill Maher, he is still a keen participant on the political comedy circuit, often performing over 60 dates per year.

Self-proclaimed Brooklyn Life Coach Stand-Up Comedian Tommy Lama, brings his unmatched and unorthodox wisdom to the Stratisphere where he delivers this original comedy act to his “disciples” five nights a week. It is a parody of the motivational and spiritual speakers seeking to give his audience a backwards education in enlightenment. Equipped with a number of instruments, tarot cards, and his own custom-made underwear for protection when not in his presence, Tommy Lama’s new spiritually healing hilarity shows at The Dragon Room, inside The Stratosphere.  (Dark Wednesdays & Thursdays)

Tommy Savitt, the comedian behind the Tommy Lama, is a multi-award winning comedian with 15 years of performing experience. Originally a lawyer, Tommy Savitt gave up his career in Real Estate Law to pursue stand-up comedy and acting in productions of Shakespeare in New York City. He has performed on the radio for the Bob & Tom Show as well as Blue Collar Radio. He has also been around the world performing for troops. Tommy Savitt’s alter-ego, The Tommy Lama, has proven a huge hit.

ONE NIGHT EPIC LOGO UPDATED

 

Vegas Magic Duo Jarrett & Raja guest on Las Vegas Backstage Talk radio show with Comedian Michele LaFong, to promote the opening of their new show “One Epic Night” at The Plaza, for a limited run through January.

Jarrett & Raja, known as The Magic and Piano Guys, are set to open their show “One EPIC
Night” at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas at the end of August, 2016. Featuring 3 singers from the NBC hit
show “The Voice”, “American Idol”, and an all-star band, the guys are truly bringing magic with music in this
dynamic and very exciting show.
This ground-breaking duo just appeared on ABC’s hit TV show “Shark Tank” where they performed and stood
before Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, and Robert Herjavec. Jarrett & Raja were
one of only 140 entrepreneurs selected from over 43,000 applicants to the ABC show, produced by Mark Burnett
Productions.
The charismatic magic duo has also been seen on NBC’s #1 hit show, “America’s Got Talent” as semi-finalists
and were Howie Mandel’s favorite Wild Card pick (season 7) where they produced a full orchestra on stage. They
also appeared in SyFy’s “Wizard Wars” with Penn & Teller (2014), BBC’s “The Slammer” (2013), and are
currently on their 3rd season of The CW’s “Masters of Illusion” hosted by Dean Cain (2014 – 2016).
The two talents came together in an impromptu performance at The Friar’s Club in NYC. They first performed as
a cabaret act in Greenwich Village, Lincoln Center, and at Hollywood’s prestigious Magic Castle. After moving to
Las Vegas, they immediately landed a residency at The Regent Hotel in Summerlin. They could also be seen in
the popular “Golden Rainbow” shows in Las Vegas.
