The Dirty at 12:30 - Great Show at South Point
That spells it out pretty well.
“The Dirty at 12:30” Yes, that's what the sign outside South Point's Grandview Lounge says. It also declares that the language is explicit and rated R. We checked out this new Vegas show a few weeks ago on opening night at its 12:30 a.m. Start time. The comics will have you laughing until around 2 a.m.
The show is presented by comedians Ralphie May and Gabe Lopez. That tells you something right there. Ralphie May has no lines, no bounds. ANYTHING is fair game for him. Opening night was dirty -- and funny. And what a deal. Following his scheduled show, Ralphie crossed the casino to get things started in the lounge. Swamp people, shaved monkeys, peaches, sex – all subjects for the big brilliant boy from the south.
Truth is, I didn't take very many notes. Too busy laughing. This show is not for everyone. I mean, what else do they have to tell you after the title D I R T Y. They should add, but hilarious. The energy level was high in the room which was filled to capacity.
I check in with South Point Entertainment Director Michael Libonatim to see how things are going. He told me that folks should come early. “Everybody needs to be there at midnight. We give about 50 free shots at 12:30.” They start it off with a toast.

No cover, no minium, but the powers that be hope you'll be putting down a few drinks while you have a good time.The show is contracted for a three month run, but if the crowds keep up the way they have been, we can expect that the show will go on.
Free show, dirty, free shots. What more do you need to know. Just go to South Point's Grandview Lounge on Fridays at midnight to laugh it up.
Grant Griffin's 2013 The Voices Brought Broadway, Soul and Jazz to South Point
Grant Griffin's 2013 The Voices brought some enduring talent to the South Point Showroom in late May. Grant himself is one of the stars of the show as he alternates between introductions and singing some famous Broadway tunes including his show-stopping rendition of The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha.
The show is an annual event and this year included the singing of Jeneane Marie, Robin Berry, Gabriella Versace, Chas Laporte, Paul Stublefield, and Jessica Vanek.

It's not all singing though. The Mistinguett Showgirls strutted their stuff and Enrique Lugo Dance Company returned to once again show their fancy footwork. Musical director was Ned Mills led a six piece live band and the show was produced and directed by Mistinguett.
