Comedian Jeff Civillico On the Move, Won’t Return to Flamingo Las Vegas

Comedy-juggler Jeff Civillico is making moves again, and that includes ending his headlining gig at Flamingo Las Vegas.

Civillico was supposed to return to Flamingo after a brief hiatus, but he’s moving his “Comedy in Action” show to Paris Las Vegas starting April 5, 2017. The new show will happen at 7:00 p.m. in the Anthony Cools Experience showroom.

Weird fact: Jeff Civillico claims to hold a world record for bungee jumping off a cliff in New Zealand while on a unicycle.

Civillico has been in Bugsy’s Cabaret at Flamingo since 2015. Before that, he headlined at the Linq hotel after building a fan base at the Planet Hollywood restaurant in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.

There’s no word on what might replace Civillico’s show at Flamingo.

Civillico is keeping his performance schedule light at Paris, just one night a week, as he focuses on a burgeoning TV hosting career.

Civillico currently hosts “Weekend in Vegas,” formerly “Las Vegas Good News,” a weekly entertainment and news show taped live at Linq promenade. We chatted up Jeff Civillico about it on an early episode of the Vital Vegas Podcast.

Civillico’s TV show was produced in a re-purposed shipping container which straddled the Linq’s fountains. Oh, yes, there was straddling.

He also helms a TV effort called “Backline,” a show featuring musical guests such as Blues Traveler, Smash Mouth, Eddie Money and others. “Backline” launches in fall 2017.

His TV shows are just a couple of the plates Civillico is keeping aloft at the moment. It was recently announced his successful nonprofit, Win-Win Entertainment, an organization that connects other nonprofits with Las Vegas entertainers, has gone national.

“Jeff Civillico: Comedy in Action” is one of the best, family-friendly values in Vegas, so we’re glad to hear it will find a new home at Paris. Given the brutal string of Las Vegas shows that closed in 2016, we’ll take a “moved” over a “closed” any day.
