When we covered the opening of Tropicana's Laugh Factory back in May, we wondered aloud what famous names might be dropping by. One comedy star has decided to drop in for an extended residency. Roseanne Barr will be performing six nights a week starting January 14.
This seems to us a perfect merging of space and talent. At 320 seats, you'll be up close and personal with the polarizing performer. And, Roseanne is certainly no stranger to Vegas. Her frequent visits include a former residency at the Sahara's Congo Room in 2008. She still includes a clip from that gig on her YouTube channel:
Roseanne will be performing Saturday to Thursday at 7 p.m. and ticket prices will range from $49.95 to $69.95, plus your usual fees. Checking available tickets, we discovered she's currently booked until March 3. A serious commitment.
Taking the 7 p.m. spot means "Celebrity Magician" Murray SawChuck needs to move his show to 5 p.m. starting February 4th. The earlier spot may necessitate a stronger pitch to family audiences. Roseanne's live show is certainly not suitable for the kiddies. You have been warned.
