COMEDIAN SPENCER JAMES
THURSDAY-SUNDAY, MARCH 28-31
SILVER LEGACY – LAUGH FACTORY
Though comedian Spencer James calls both Denver and Southeast Kansas home, he will be residing in Reno this weekend, and making folks laugh at The Silver Legacy’s Laugh Factory.  The comedy clubchainconsistently brings in the funniest comedians touring the US and James takes the stage in Reno with a blend of music, dance and quick wit.  He’s been described as having an “A Capella voice with a sharp tongue,” and “a little dash of Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. mixed in.”  Sounds like a pretty good show to me.  Check out a little of Spencer James’ comedy in THIS VIDEO, and purchase tickets to see him live at SilverLegacyReno.com.

 

THE RAT PACK IS BACK
THURSDAYS-SATURDAYS THRU JUNE 29

HARRAH’S RENO – SAMMY’S SHOWROOM
