The theme song from the beloved '80s and early '90s TV sitcom Cheers could easily be used for the L.A. Comedy Club. Not only is it a place where you can take a break from all your worries, but the staff here soon will know your name -- if they don't already. A large percentage of the L.A. Comedy Club's patrons are locals who have been following the franchise since it was launched several years ago at Palace Station. After a stint in Trader Vic's at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, it moved to downtown's Four Queens, then to Bally's Las Vegas and now is at The STRAT. Inside the venue you'll find the hallmarks of a typical comedy club. A mic and wooden stool are front and center on a large stage that is flanked by two video screens. Clips of practical jokes and bloopers are broadcast to patrons before the show begins. There's a variety of seating options (chairs, tables and booths) -- and no matter where you sit, you'll have a good view. The format at the L.A. Comedy Club is simple. The bulk of the stage time is given to the The Happy Hour Variety Show starring Julio Gonzalez. Many of the headliners like Felipe Esparza have competed on NBC's reality laugh fest Last Comic Standing, while others including Willie Ferrell, Tom Rhodes, Joey Medina, Butch Bradley and Shang have Showtime, HBO or Comedy Central credits to their name. These headlining comedians are paired with a host from Las Vegas, which is another unique feature of the L.A. Comedy Club. Not only does it offer a top-notch venue for professional comics, but local talent is also nurtured and promoted. Occasionally, a surprise guest or famous friend of a headliner stops by and performs to the delight of customers as well. Be sure to get your dose of laughs during your Vegas vacation.

Earn your pole dancing credit at Stripper 101--a women's only class at Planet Hollywood that teaches students the tricks of the pole dancing trade all in the name of good fun. If you're a bitapprehensive before heading to the Stripper 101 studio at Planet Hollywood, not to worry. Just wear something comfortablethat makes you feel sexy, bring along high heels, unless you don't mind standing on your tip-toes, and leave your hang-ups at home. Everyone there had a different body shape, andwere in different stages of their lives. One woman brought her grandmother! Most of the women were attending in groups -- some celebrating a birthday, others an upcoming wedding. Before heading into the stripper dance studio, we would-be strippers met in the adjoining bar to tilt back a shot (or two). Because this isn't a true class (none of us were planning on dancing for tips later that night), loosening up and having fun is encouraged. During the class, stripper apprenticesare guided through an entire lap dance routine, step-by-step, by a working stripper. If you've ever been to a strip club (yep), the tips were true to what you'd experience there. When dancing for your man, don't allow him to touch you. You are in control. Sway your hips and swing your hair. Flaunt your best (ass)ets. And if your man is of the generous sort, encourage him to stick a bill or two in your bra (assuming you're still wearing it). From the lap dance, you start on the stripper pole and exercise your skills.Instructors arepatient and show us just how to gain momentum on the pole. The class teaches you enough to spice up your love life with a very lucky man.

We're about as indecisive as anyone else on this planet. Like come on, how can you make a decision on which show to see when there are a bazillion of them in Las Vegas? We ask ourselves every time, are we feeling loveydoveyor do we want to go to that rock metal concert down the street? Luckily, we found the solution to all our indecisive problems. V -- The Ultimate Variety show gives you every entertainment element packed into one, like a buffet of talent, if you will. And in the true spirit of variety, the production swaps out different performers each night. Talking about the mystery of it all gives us that feeling of truly living on the edge. But if you're more of a person that needs to be in the know, we'll give you the deets. There's the Skating Aratas, a husband and wife duo that pull out the death-defying stunts to get your blood pumping. And then there's a former rhythmic gymnastics Olympian, Yeroffyeva which will have you in awe with the beauty of her moves. Or maybe The Crazy Gauchos will come out with a drum routine you'll fall in love with. It doesn't matter which acts come out from behind the curtain, all of them have great talent you can't help but get googly eyed over all of them. Problem solved indecisive people, this is the Las Vegas show you need to see.

An Old Fashioned, some red lipstick and a black dress...sigh, there's just something undeniable about a good ol' classic. The beloved Vegas showgirl may be an endangered species these days (insert tear), but "VEGAS! THE SHOW" preserved those feather-clad beauties and the likes of an era when everything was flashier and dripping with sophistication. What's that you ask? Can a show filled with gorgeous and talented women a la Rat Pack era really exist in the here and now? Oh yes my friend, it sure can and all we have to say is raise that curtain and let the good times roll. With a little song, a lot of dance and that certain sultry allure that only old timey Vegas could pull off, this is a trip down memory lane and, well, it's pretty legit. The costumes are fun, funky, sexy and so real. Ok, well maybe not the candy-themed costumes but hell, their Sammy Davis JR. sure had us pining for an autograph. For a city that was built on pure, raw talent and obviously dolla dolla bills, this show celebrates iconic moments from the city's rich entertainment history through the decades that made the Vegas we know and love today. And we'll tip our top hats to that.

Have you ever had that awkward moment where one person in your group wants to see a zombie show and the other wants to see a burlesque show? Thankfully, Zombie Burlesque is available to end the debate. Admittedly a delicate balance, Zombie Burlesque manages to satisfy those who come for the antics of the undead and the booty twerking, alike. More than just a mindless strip show though (pun intended), Zombie Burlesque is, plain-and-simply, a good time. Because we're all 15 years-old at heart, jokes about flesh eating and fornicating will obviously never get old, but the dancing, singing, body bending and aerial routines will have your jaw dropping in amazement. Shock, awe and overall awesomeness aside, the show's element of improvisation means that no two shows are ever the exact same, which is about as fresh as a recently murdered --err-, maybe we shouldn't go down that road. Zombie fans, burlesque lovers, comedy fanatics, this show has something for everyone. Now if only it was this easy to get everyone to agree on dinner.

This show has gone to the dogs -- and cats. Featuring everyday pets doing extraordinary things, Gregory Popovich's Comedy Pet Theater is the cutest show on the Las Vegas Strip. You'll see dogs, cats, doves and other animals act out scenarios like passengers waiting to board a train, students in a classroom and patients waiting to be seen by a doctor. Of course the passengers, students and patients are played by Popovich's more than 30 pets. As the creator, he's the main star of the show. However, his cuddly cast members can't help but steal the spotlight. The show also features circus acts like juggling, gymnastics and a jump rope routine. Some of the acts are performed by Popovich, while others showcase the talents of his featured artists. One of them is his daughter Anastasie. She dances, twirls a baton and leads a group of adorable dachshunds in a routine. She directs the dogs with ease, a talent she must have inherited from her father. A fifth-generation circus performer, Russian-born Popovich developed his skills at the Moscow Circus School. His talents earned him a spot touring with the Moscow Circus. He has performed throughout Europe, Japan and America in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and at the Circus Circus in Las Vegas. In the show he juggles pins and small hoops and even balances on a free-standing ladder. Hailing from a family of circus performers, Popovich also learned how to create strong bonds with animals and how to train them. All of the animals in the show were rescued from shelters around the country and transformed into stars on the Strip. In 2009, Popovich released his first book, "You CAN Train Your Cat."
