Las Vegas: Afternoon shows offer music, magic and more--for less
Where else but Vegas can you catch Elvis, a juggler and magicians, all while escaping the afternoon heat? The city offers an array of afternoon shows. For bargain hunters, they’re generally priced below the nighttime entertainment. Credit smaller casts and less overhead for the lower ticket prices, said Mac King, whose “Comedy Magic Show” has been playing to afternoon audiences at Harrah’s for more than 13 years. “I don’t have dancing girls to pay and exotic tigers to feed,” he said. Here’s a sampling of such shows.

Cook E. Jarr
Cook E. Jarr arrived in Vegas in 1982 for a two-week gig and never left. Jarr delivers a show that's part patter and part song, reminiscent of a time when such acts were staples of the Strip. He performs 4-6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at the Piano Bar at Harrah's. Twenty-one and older only. Admission is free.
