In a word: brilliant. Seriously, I've been to a lot of shows (Vegas, on/off Broadway, etc.), and they really did break the mold with this one. Think incredibly sharp wit, very crude humor, and amazing feats of skill, and beauty (for both sexes) that you've never seen before and you have Absinthe. Now, I've read a lot of the reviews... More

What I like most about this show is it gives you a taste of all of the cirque du soleil shows and still leaves you breathless from laughter and excitement.

This is one of the funniest shows that I've seen! I expected the political incorrectness and crudeness but what I was pleasantly surprised about was the talent! The skits and acts that these performers put on were as good and, in many cases, better than the acts in a Cirque show. I was amazed from start to finish. I think... More

We had read reviews on this show and decided to give it a shot. When we bought the tickets from Tix4tonight they were pretty diligent at warning us about the language and content. The show was great!! Quite rude and crude, especially from the ringmaster and his assistant. If you are offended by politically incorrect jokes and references, this is... More

The acts of this show were all great, TOP level artists. The show is clearly for adults, humor is for adults only, very good but if you are easily offended by lexicon, this is not definitely for you. The tent is small, which allows you to be pretty close to the stage and this level rises the experience. As negative... More

This show had some parts that were off your chair funny. The circus type acts were amazing, but I didn't need to see nearly every female in a thong and topless. Folding metal chairs made it uncomfortable. No other show in Vegas like it that's for sure.

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

This show is one of the best I have ever seen! BEWARE: this is not a show for those that cannot take vulgarity, streams of obscenity, 'All in the Family, Archie Bunker' style humor and sided boob nudity. It takes place in a small circus tent by Caesar's. Show was about an hour filled with jokes, incredible athleticism, hold your... More
