Wynn Las Vegas has a packed entertainment schedule this summer for fans of standup comedy. Some of the performers are new to the luxury casino resort while others are making return engagements. Beginning June, six different comedians will grace the stage at the Encore Theater. The summer comedy performances will kick off with one of the most popular comedians in the country returning to Wynn for shows in front of a packed audience once again.
June 18-19 – Shows at 7:30 and 10 p.m.
Comedy superstar Sebastian Maniscalco will return to Wynn Las Vegas for his third headlining engagement on Father’s Day weekend. Maniscalco will present his new “Nobody Does This Tour” with two nights of back-to-back performances.
Last year Maniscalco performed for an intimate crowd outdoors at Wynn.

The multi-talented comedian, actor, and musician Demetri Martin will make his Wynn Las Vegas debut with his “I Feel Funny Tour.” While he’s been very popular in comedy circles for years, he may be off the radar for a mainstream audience. Martin is known for his deadpan delivery and original sketch comedy. Like literal sketching and comedy.
Saturday, July 17 at 8 p.m.
Nate Bargatze returns to Wynn Las Vegas for one night only with his “The Raincheck Tour.” The low-key Bargatze returns to Las Vegas after releasing an outdoor comedy special on Netflix. Bargatze has toured with Chris Rock, Jimmy Fallon, and more. He’s been named one of Esquire’s “Best New Comedians” by Jim Gaffigan, one of Marc Maron’s “Comedians to Watch” by Rolling Stone, and one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch.”

Renowned comedian, actor, podcast/radio host, and writer Tom Papa brings his “Family Reunion Tour” to Wynn Las Vegas this summer. Papa has been doing standup comedy for 20 years and recently released a book called “You’re Doing Great: And Other Reasons to Stay Alive“.

Six-time Grammy-nominated comedian, actor, writer and producer Jim Gaffigan returns to Wynn Las Vegas with back-to-back performances of his new “The Fun Tour”. Gaffigan was named a top ten comedian according to Forbes’ 2019 comedy list and was recently recognized for being the first comedian to reach one billion streams on Pandora. That’s well and good but we just want Hot Pocket jokes.
Aug. 13-14 at 8 p.m.
By popular demand, two additional performances have been added to Jo Koy’s previously announced September show schedule at Encore Theater. Fans can enjoy more of Koy’s “Just Kidding World Tour.” Koy is one of today’s most popular stand-up comedians and sells out theaters all over the world. He was the first comedian I interviewed in Las Vegas many years ago. That has to count for something.
