Today, Monday By the Numbers hits the remote for “Dice,” the series starring Andrew Dice Clay set to premiere Sunday at 9:30 p.m. on Showtime.
Following up on what we’ll call a “lingering” scoop, Clay is planning a one-off show at Tropicana Theater at 10 p.m. May 28 as part of a planned Laugh Factory Concert Series.
In this schematic, Clay would be the first in a series of headliners to play weekend dates after performances of “Raiding the Rock Vault.”
Comedy has been a solid sell at the Trop, with the regular rotation of comics at Laugh Factory — featuring the esteemed Harry Basil, who also manages the club — and a 7 p.m. residency for venerable impressionist Rich Little.
Let’s figure these figures:
900: Seats sold by Clay in three shows in the 300-capacity Laugh Factory (yes, that means three sellouts).
1,100: Total capacity of Tropicana Theater.
19,000:Total capacity of Madison Square Garden.
2: Consecutive performances Clay sold out at MSG in 1990.
2: Shows added for “Alice – A Steampunk Rock Concert” at Brooklyn Bowl in the Linq Promenade.
10: Members of The Roots.
11: Member of The Roots on Tuesday night when they are joined by Wayne Newton.
1 million+: Units The Roots’ breakthrough album, “Things Fall Apart,” from 1999 have sold.
$75 million: Amount spent on the renovations to Julius Tower at Caesars Palace.
587: Rooms at that tower.
$139: Starting rate for rooms at Julius Tower (not including fees).
$99-$139: Ticket prices to “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace (not including fees).
$155: Monthly, all-access membership to Xcycle indoor cycling studio at Boca Park
36: Schwinn-model stationary bikes at Xcycle.
$60,000: Value of the sound system at the business.
3: Years the Rise Lantern Festival will be held in Las Vegas, as it has announced a return in October.
2: Days this year’s festival is scheduled to run (specifically, Oct. 7-8 at Moapa River Reservation).
Tropicana Las Vegas sits on the south-east corner of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard, an intersection which has the most adjacent hotel rooms in the world, also making it one of the most busy. The hotel has 1,658 rooms, three restaurants, a 62,011-square foot casino and a spa.
