One of the most popular spots for entertainment in South Lake Tahoe is the comedy club at Harvey’s Casino, “The Improv at Harvey’s”. Buckingham Properties took a night out on the town and headed to Harvey’s Casino for a full night of entertainment, drinks and TONS of laughs.
Hearing the word “Improv”, your first thought may be, “Improv show? Like struggling actors all trying to put something together last minute to get a few chuckles?”. Actually, this “Improv at Harveys” is a nightly comedy club here in South Lake Tahoe that features professional acts Wedneday – Sunday nights.
Our Thursday night show had a half full audience in the Cabaret Theater at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe. After getting our slightly over-priced drinks, we waited for the show to begin in a theater that looked to be straight off a Cruise Ship. With ruffled curtain drawn, local radio host, Howie, welcomed the crowd and announced the line-up for the night.
Three comics entertained us for the 2 hour show with drink girls roaming the floor all night. All acts were certainly laughable, even though the opening act seemed more like they grabbed a snow-bum off the mountain and threw him on stage.
The other two acts seemed a bit more legit, confident on stage and name dropping “what late night TV show they last performed on”.
All in all, “The Improv at Harvey’s” in South Lake Tahoe was a stellar success and highly recommended to fill your vacation with laughs and nightly entertainment. With the Hard Rock Cafe right next door, you can make a whole evening out of it!
