The International Consumer’s Electronic Show (CES) celebrated 50 years at the Las Vegas Convention Center this past weekend. The world’s largest consumer technology trade show opened its doors on January 5th and awed the tech community through the 8th. Over 3,800 companies showed off all their new gadgets to the estimated 165,000 guests who attended the conference. If you’ve never been to CES, you have to experience it at least once… even if you’re not a big techie, you’ll still be blown away just walking the massive trade show floor and taking it all in. I happen to be a nerd at heart, which means I really love it!
I’m proud to say that I’ve kept my New Year’s Resolution… so far. :)
As published in Las Vegas Magazine‘s article:
Jeff Civillico, comedian (The Linq Hotel) “My New Year’s resolution is to not call The Linq Hotel by the wrong name onstage, either intentionally as a joke or accidentally as a mistake! Come on down to the Imperial Quad Linq Palace for my show!”
Here are a few more Las Vegas performer’s resolutions…
Carrot Top, comedian (Luxor) “My New Year’s resolution is to cancel the gym membership and start eating pizza and drinking more beer … and maybe start smoking, too.”
David Copperfield, magician (MGM Grand) “I hope to achieve balance in 2015.”
Shawn Stockman, Boyz II Men (The Mirage) “My resolution: To stop eating bread or anything with gluten in it ever again!”

In a huge send off for the year, VegasChatter has chosen me as their Fave Vegas Celebrity Of 2014! Here is a bit of the piece:
One of the hardest working entertainers on the Strip, Jeff could teach a master class in the making of a brand. Corporate meetings? He’s there. Speaking engagements? Yep. Appearances at out-of-state sister resorts? Check. Co-hosting the local news? Seemingly always on the dial. In-room television segments for Caesars Entertainment? In production. Red carpet appearances? Striking a pose. At the airport? Reminding us of TSA no-no’s. Social media? Find him on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. And, yes, YouTube, too. Meet-and-greets after his shows? Yes, and free, too.
But, what really makes him unforgettable to us is his continuing commitment to giving back to the community. Not only did he create his own charity, Win-Win Entertainment which pairs performers with ways to give back (close to 70 events took place this year alone), Jeff makes dozens of charitable appearances himself, from brightening spirits at the local childrens’ hospital to “rapuggling” (rappelling while juggling) down the side of Planet Hollywood in support of Special Olympics. He also launched “Give Back Sundays” this fall which gives half of his Sunday ticket sales to a different non-profit each weekend.
Wow! Here is a huge ‘Thank You’ to VegasChatter for not only recognizing my 4pm show at The Linq but also recognizing Win-Win Entertainment.
And finally, to VegasChatter, the pants are in fact from Express. Choose me again for best Celeb of 2015 and I’ll take you shopping with me. ;)

What a fun article in Las Vegas Weekly from Las Vegas superstar talent Maren Wade! She recently spotlighted me in her column “Confessions of a Showgirl.” This week it became “Confessions of a Juggler” – HA! I got to share the experience of my first cruise ship gig ever. Funny stuff, Maren – and so well written. You are so talented! Thanks for the opportunity, and continued success with your column.
Remember when I said, “the modern-day showgirl comes in many forms, shapes and sizes … In Vegas, they don’t even have to be women?” Today I’m going to bend the rules even further. I present to you: “Confessions of a Juggler.”
Every young adult comes to that crossroad where he decides what he wants to be in life. Some become lawyers, some become doctors and some become Jeff Civillico, one of the most successful jugglers in Las Vegas, brilliantly blending comedy and action in his appropriately titled show, Jeff Civillico: Comedy in Action (at the Q Theater at the Quad at 4 p.m. every day except Tuesday and Friday). (How’s that for a shameless plug, Jeff?)
But it’s important to note, he didn’t start out that way…
Jeff Civillico discusses Corporate Entertainers and their perceived market value. He outlines five guidelines to keep performing in the current economy.
