This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Rick Michel, co-producer/writer of the new show, “Jew Man Group,” at the Tuscany Suites and Casino. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Rick talks about the show paying homage to the Borscht Belt, but not limiting itself to Jewish humor; why it’s important to be politically incorrect for the sake of comedy; why, if you can’t laugh at yourself, laugh at everybody else; the feature of the show, which are the acts; and the science behind jokes.
Rick has been a master impressionist for more than 50 years. He has shared the stage with Rich Little, Mickey Rooney, John Byner and Sherman Hemsley.
Performing in Las Vegas since 1981, Rick has performed from one end of the Strip to the other, and has enjoyed Las Vegas being home as well as his work place.
