The legendary Laugh Factory Las Vegas at the New Tropicana Las Vegas is featuring comedian Harry Basil on Sunday, April 29.

Harry Basil's extraordinary skill at bringing the big screen to life on stage has had audiences rolling in the aisles for decades. Basil, a renowned impressionist and prop comic, takes the crowd on a wild romp through current and classic movies, with a trunk of outrageous props and costumes that could fill a soundstage. Films Basil has spoofed include "Jaws," "Titanic," "Forrest Gump," "Star Wars," and the entire nine hours of "The Godfather" saga.

A true movie buff, Basil does not just imitate the pictures, he helps create them. He co-wrote and produced three of Rodney Dangerfield's movies, "Ladybugs," "Meet Wally Sparks," and "My Five Wives."

The Laugh Factory comedy showroom features different marquee acts each week, from established stand-up superstars to the young rising stars of tomorrow. Laugh Factory Las Vegas shows are performed daily at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Tickets start at $29 (plus applicable taxes).  For more information, go to //www.laughfactory.com/content/LasVegas.html
