You know on part of the strip they have those 1/2 off ticket show booths outside...whats the deal with those? Are they restricted shows and times?

If so whats a good way to get a deal on some of the popular shows?

I use them any time we go to a show.
They are good, but a few things.
You can only buy ticket the day of the show.
Not all show are available.
Most shows come with a couple of free drinks these don't.
Buy ticket early then go asap to the ticket box office for the show to get your tickets, the earlier you go the better the seats.
The last show we used them for was PEEPSHOW at PH.
I don't remember what the cost but the were half price.
went to ticket box office and got so close One of the girls from the show was laying on stage reached out and took some of my m&ms I had on our table.

All the above is true. 

Some tickets will be 1/2 price, some a little more, some a little less.  The only thing I will say, is that with a little work before your trip, you can find a lot of these same types of discounts online through Travelzoo or other websites with similar deals, or travel brochures and books scattered around LV.  It is great, though, if you don't really have a plan for your trip and decide some morning that you want to see a show that night.

I have a friend who works in the "entertainment" dept at one of the MGM casinos.

"Tickets for tonight", is the best of these 1/2 price brokers they are located all over the city, one location is in the "coke" bottle near the m&m store near the mgm.

What you do is get a voucher for each ticket you need and then as someone stated in an earlier post you then head to the casino of the show you have and turn the vouchers into tickets.

10 AM is when they go onsale and if you can get to the theatre by 11 am for a 7pm show you should get very good seats.

The leg work you put into it is worth the savings.

Also try to stay away from the online ticket sales, ala orbitz, vegas.com , tripadvisor.
