This week, Ira spoke with comedian Henry Cho, who will be performing at the South Point Casino Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14 at 7:30. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Henry talks about how he discovered he was unique as a comedian, growing up of Korean descent in Knoxville, Tennessee; why he took ten years off from his comedy career; how you can be funny without being neurotic; why his disability insurance is so high (as it is for other comedians); how he ended up performing at the Grand Ole Opry; why he’s never been a worrier; and why he can work anywhere because of the type of comedy he performs.
This week, Ira spoke with Tom Zaller, president and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions, a leader in global traveling entertainment. The company’s latest exhibition, National Geographic’s “Rarely Seen” (at Bally’s Las Vegas) features 50 striking images shot by some of the world’s finest photographers of places, events, natural phenomena, and man-made heirlooms seldom seen by human eyes.
In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Tom talks about how the project was launched in partnership with National Geographic; the unique staging features of this exhibit, which creates an immersive experience for visitors; the importance of capturing a moment in time by world-class professional photographers; why some of the images were enhanced (but not changed by technology); and the reaction of people to these dynamic photographs.
