We spent $300 to sit in folding chairs and the show had no story. While a couple of the acrobatic acts were good, there was no connection to the namesake and the host/sidekick were not that funny. I see most of the reviews on here at very positive, but I just didn't get it. Unneccesarily crude, racially inappropriate and way... More

My wife and I had seen numerous rave reviews for this show, and since we were looking for something a bit different, we decided to give this show a try. The cost of the show was about on par with the Cirque shows, so I was expecting the same caliber of experience. This was most definitely not the case. While... More

A group of us went for my friends birthday. Laughed the whole time. Show was funny and extremely entertaining. Loved the hosts. The entertainers are amazing. Scary and amazing. Would love to see again. We had absinthe and enjoyed it! If you are offended f easily don't go but if you aren't and realize all in good fun then you'll... More

Booked this last minute on a friends recommendation and loved it. The concierge desk advised me it was a little "racy" but that was a massive understatement. It is obscene, crass, OTT great humour. A mix of Cirque with great performances and really funny adult humour. I was one of the minority groups jokes were made about and I still... More

We got tickets and went to the show based on the recommendation of a friend. We didn't read up on the show or anything so we really had no idea of what to expect. It's a small tented venue with a party-circus sort of atmosphere. Looks of folks had cocktails and there was just a lot of fun in the... More

The performances by the athletes were amazing and well worth the $90 I paid at the Discount Ticket booth, however, the comedians were vulgar and their attempts to engage the audience were just rude and insulting. I am no prude and adult language is fine but this was way over the top. If you removed the "F" word, not much... More

This show is exactly as advertised, great circus acts without most of the pretense plus obscene humor. It was a great change of pace from the Cirque shows we usually attend, even if many of the acts were basically the same stuff we've seen many times before. The theater is very intimate, you are right on top of the stage... More

Absinthe is a lot of fun, but very expensive. We paid $152 per ticket to sit in the third row. My wife and I thought the very off color jokes and commentary were hilarious and the acrobats were amazing. It seemed odd to us that the show is presented in a tent in the courtyard vs a theatre. The good... More

Before purchasing tickets I carefully read the previous reviews, which proved to be incredibly helpful. Based upon these reviews, we chose to purchase front row center seats. Considering the additional cost of these seats, especially for a show under 90 minutes, this is not something we would normally do. However I can not recommend it highly enough. Several reviews commented... More

We had dinner at Cesars (Bobby Flay Mesa Grill). We walked over to the theater. The show is quite fun. Some politically incorrect jokes, but the show itself overall is fun. The only thing we did not like was our hard chairs that we had to sit on.
