Two MGM Resorts properties are set to host a weekend of stand-up comedy in February.
The MGM Grand and Mirage properties will host "Comedy Central Vegas" on Feb. 22-23, the company announced Tuesday.
The weekend will feature shows starring Dave Attell, Jim Norton, Amy Schumer, Nick Swardson and Anthony Jeselnik.
Attell and Norton will team up for shows at the MGM Grand's Hollywood Theater over the two days. Tickets, which start at $59.99, are on sale at 1-866-740-7711, 702-891-7800, mgmgrand.com and ticketmaster.com.
Attell is famed for his Comedy Central show "Insomniac with Dave Attell", while Norton made his name as a best-selling author, radio personality and contributor to a number of late night talk shows.
Meanwhile, Schumer, Swardson and Jeselnik will star in separate shows emanating from the Mirage's Terry Fator Theater.
Schumer will be performing on Feb. 22 at 10 p.m. as part of her "Inside Amy Schumer" tour. The up and coming comedienne recently starred in her own one-hour Comedy Central special, "Amy Schumer: Mostly Sex Stuff".
