“loved Absinthe!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

When we were looking for shows to book before going to Vegas we were not sure, because we had seen most of the cirque du soleil shows from previous trips. But when we saw Absinthe we decided to see what it was like and we bought the VIP tickets.
The show is in a tent built outside of Caesars Palace and it looks pretty small on the outside. the VIP access is another entrance through a green telephone booth where they give you a small bottle of champagne and a glass or a bottle of water.
The seats were very close to the stage and very close together and somewhat uncomfortable, but once the show starts you forget all about those things!

If you don't mind sexual humor and nudity, this show is awesome!

We were the second row from the front which was only 2 feet away from the small circular stage in the middle of the tent and glad for it, because everyone in the first row got picked on. You could see every drop of sweat from the performers. There was a mix of acrobats, comedy, singing and strip tease. By far one of our favourite shows on the strip!

“HILARIOUS!!!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

So, so, so funny. What a great performance. The acts in-between were awesome and the host kept us laughing the whole time. If you are offended by colorful language and humor - I would not recommend - but otherwise, it is a must see!

“Best laugh in town - a must see show”
Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We were a little concerned at first, booking tickets outdoors from a telephone kiosk sized booth then realising the show would be in a tent. Seating was on hard wooden chairs surrounding a tiny circular stage. Oh dear we thought BUT .... WHAT A SHOW FROM START TO FINISH !
If you want to see acrobats defying human strength and balance then this is it - unbelievable.
The show moves at a high pace without a break and yes there is some audience participation, usually from the front row so be warned.
The show hosts are male and female and you will split your sides with laughter throughout the show.
One seriously important note however - if you are offended by swearing, jokes of a sexual nature or racial comments then this is not for you, otherwise be ready for a great 90 minutes of fun.
We hope this show runs for a couple of years as we would hope to see it again in the future.

A hilariously politically incorrect and throughly entertaining show!!! Leave the kids behind for this one!

“Hilarious!!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This show is outside the caesers in a white tent. The box office is outside the tent...it looks like a phone booth. If you blink, you'll miss it!
Now onto the show...I'm very open minded and I enjoy raunchy sense of humors. There was points in the show where even I was thinking...wow did they really say that?
BUT....it was hilarious! If you offend easily or don't like racist comments...do not see it!
There are little acts in the show as well that are incredible. It almost seems like a little circus with some cirque de soleil acts mixed in.
If you have an open mind and enjoy crude humor....GO!
