Well done show with great acts and enough adult humor without being overboard. We were tired as it was the 10 pm show on our last night there and had been drinking early in the day. No chance of falling asleep during this show as we were very entertained. The acrobats were amazing. TIP...Get the seats on the back row.... More

While the acrobats were phenomenal, the theme of the show seemed to be to try to be shocking. It seemed to be reaching too hard to find ways to "shock" people and seemed to fail. Just talking about body parts and using bad language doesn't make it entertaining. I was bored by the emcee but loved the acrobatic acts.

I saw Absinthe for the second time earlier this month and it was once again worth ever penny. I have seen a lot of shows on the strip and this one, by far, is the best of the best. The Gazillionaire is hilarious and even though Penny wasn't there (Dorothy filled in admirably) i laughed til tears ran down my... More

We got tickets for absinthe from the tix for tonight booth on the strip & I can honestly say it's the best $90 I've ever spent. All of the acts were amazing & the hosts were hilarious. It's not a show for the faint hearted (its crass & there's plenty of swearing) but for anyone over 18 it's a show... More

If you've seen any non-traditional, subversive circus acts before, then Absinthe is not going to show you anything you haven't already seen- the only memorable performance for me was the breathlessly beautiful aerial silks couple. On the other hand, if your only circus experience has been 'serious' circuses (Cirque, Russian, Chinese, etc.) then I'm sure you'll love Absinthe! All the... More

This show is for adults only. No prudes allowed. LOL...It's in a small tent and you seat on regular fold out chairs. Get there early and get better seating. I had a great time. The acrobatics and jokes were out of this world. The stage was so small, I was afraid that if they made a mistake someone in the... More

If you are fine with everything and everyone being made fun of this is the show for you. I was laughing so hard I was crying. Everyone around me was also laughing hard. The show is very intimate and you are close to all the performers. The actual acrobats and trapeze artists are stunning. I didn't know people could have... More

Loved the show. Moves fast and interspersed with the right amount of smarmy raunchy humor. Dress casually at gets a bit warm in the tent. Also I think it might be worth it to get the VIP seats so you get a cushion. The regular seats are a crap shoot. A variety of different kind of folding chairs. My seat... More

I recommend Absinthe for adults who are looking to be highly entertained by a circus/comedy act. This show offers sexually charged acts and a lot of politically incorrect humor so do not attend if you are easily offended. The circus acts were daring and exhilarating to watch. We had also attended a Cirque show this trip, this one was different... More

The show is held in a circus-type tent on the Cesar's Palace property. It is held in the round so most seats provide a good view, unless you are sitting behind a big pole. All seats are old type wooden or aluminum chairs. No padding! The show encompasses strength-type acts and is moved along by an emcee and his assistant.... More
