It was rockin’ Friday night with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and rollin’ (in laughter!) Saturday night inside the Pearl at the Palms. The venue was buzzing with one of the best looking crowds in Vegas as comedian Russell Peters took the stage.

Openers Kristine Vonhagen and Ruben Paul touched on subjects from being married to living in “the hood” before Peters took stage and started some crowd work. To sit in the front row of a Russell Peters show proves you can take a joke as Peters barely scanned the room before locking eyes on a fully-bearded gentleman in the front row – “I can’t tell if you are a Lumberjack or a hipster. If you’re here to ‘smoke’ trees or cut them.” Of course, no one can ignore the Vegas sun and Peters soon called out a fair skinned fan “It’s 116 degrees, how are you still so white?!” Peters continued on and gave the fans a Saturday night full of laughs.

Comedian Chris Tucker and MMA cutman Stitch both took in the show as well.

Next week, Cesar Millan takes the stage of The Pearl in his first-ever Vegas show to teach dog lovers how to have a better, successful and overall healthier relationship with their dogs.
