TV sitcom stars never die, they just go on to perform at Mirage

Good TV sitcoms have eternal life in syndication, and at The Mirage.

“Everybody Loves Raymond” ended in 2005 and “King of Queens” in 2007. Yet stars Ray Romano and Kevin James continue a tradition of teaming up for stand-up comedy at The Mirage, one that dates back to when the shows were still on CBS.

Romano has played Las Vegas so long — years before he was famous — that he finally had to drop a bit about the women who used to roam casino floors selling light-up yo-yos. Lately, he has surprised people with his acting range on “Parenthood.”

And James? Well, we don’t know about range, but he’s been in town filming “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” at Wynn Las Vegas.
