Last Friday night, the new Vegas Stand Up & Rock, located inside OYO Hotel & Casino just steps from the Las Vegas Strip, celebrated its grand opening with a VIP party inside of the new showroom, featuring performances by headlining comic Byron Kennedy and rising country music star Jordan Harvey.
Hilarious comedians Michael Robertson and Carlos Anthony had the audience in stitches ahead of Kennedy, who is Vegas Stand Up & Rock’s resident comic, who had the crowd roaring with laughter. Harvey, who has opened for Garth Brooks and performed on “Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” “TODAY,” and “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” followed after the comedians with a live performance.
Vegas Stand Up & Rock co-owners and producers, Joaquin Trujillo and Matt Chavez welcomed guests and were joined on the red carpet by Kennedy and Harvey. Butch Bradley, resident comedian at L.A. Comedy Club at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, and the stunning cast of FANTASY, the award-winning female revue at Luxor Hotel & Casino, were on hand to celebrate the grand opening. Also present to commemorate the new showroom were executives from international record label BMG as well as Jonah Ritter, general manager of OYO Hotel & Casino Las Vegas.
