This month I had the pleasure of spending some time in Las Vegas with my friend Drew Carey. His “Improv All-Stars” tour was playing four nights at the Luxor Hotel and Casino.
The cast of the show is made up of some amazing improv comedians that you know from “The Drew Carey Show” and “Whose Line is it Anyway” including (from l-r) Kathy Kinney, Jonathan Mangum, Sean Masterson, Ryan Stiles, Drew, Chip Esten, musical director Laura Hall, Jeff Davis, and Greg Proops.
The show is hysterical and it’s different every night since it’s all improvised.
I was flown in to document the shows and behind-the-scenes, but whenever I have the opportunity I also like to set up a portrait shoot. Since we were in a casino, I thought it would be fun to have Drew and the gang at a craps table. I arranged it with the casino and we did the shoot on a Saturday afternoon.
With a growing crowd of tourists looking on, Drew played for real and also taught Laura Hall the rules of the game.
