Irreverent humour, don't go if you are easily offended!! It's a small venue, everyone is easily spotted by the your host, the Gazillionaire and his assistant, Penny Pibbetts, so again don't go if you are not prepared for someone to make fun of you!. It was Penny who made me pee!! Do go if you like be up close and personal with great acrobatic acts, and some incredibly funny comedy.

Go to this if you want to be amazed by acrobats and fall about laughing with great comedy , put together in a show that feels like decadent Europe in the 1920s .
Introduced by a slimy comedy compere with a ditzy potty mouthed sidekick you'll cry with laughter. The abuse heaped on every section gay, straight, white, black, asian, pulls the audience together to enjoy the laughs and be impressed by each great act in this unlimited variety show.

This show is on the grounds of Ceasar's Palace. Get tickets at the show tent, NOT at the colloseum box office. It is an very intimate space, and the show is right in your face. I don't want to give anything away, but these performers are simply amazing. This was the best show we saw.

This show was soooo funny and truly amazing. Amazing how strong the people are in the show. The announcer was so funny, had the crowd laughing so hard tears were rolling down our faces :) I highly recommend going to see this show.

Hands down, this was one of the funniest, most amazing shows I have ever seen. It was raunchy, rude, ridiculous, and flat out awesome! Definitely adult themed, so if you are easily offended or just have no sense of humor, then maybe you want to avoid it. As everyone has already stated, the wooden folding chairs are not the most comfortable, however, once the show gets started, you barely notice bc you're laughing so hard or are just memorized by the performers. What makes this show really special is the proximity to the performers--because it's such a small venue, they are literally in your face, and you can see every expression, drop of sweat, etc. If anything, it just adds to the overall enjoyment of the show. The performers are truly world-class, and my favorites were the Russian acrobats and the German rollerskaters. There's even a tightrope act! In between the acts, you are entertained by the vocal stylings of Ms. Melody Sweets, as well as the antics of Penny Pibbets and your MC, the Gazillionaire. I would see this show again in a heartbeat (there are plenty of places at you can get discount tickets if you're watching your budget, as they range from about $90-$120), and would even pay full price for the show, I loved it that much!!
