    This is a show I would be willing to see again. It was fun. Raunchy and naughty, but very entertaining. Not for those easily offended, but if you can handle off-color jokes, this may be the show for you. Sitting in the front row may mean you are a victim of some of these jokes, so keep that in mind when buying your tickets.

    Without giving much away the show:
    Is like a circus, but for perverts
    Includes wonderful acrobatics (sometimes with perversion)
    Is very funny
    Has a lot of variety for those who get bored easily
    Allows you to take photos!

    The seats are kind of uncomfortable and you may find yourself sitting a little too close to the stranger next to you, but it was tolerable. Although the tent is rather large, the performance is mostly in the middle, so there aren't that many rows and we could almost touch the performers from our seats.

    If you want something that's Vegas, but still a little different, check it out!

    Currently one of the hottest non-Cirque du Soleil tickets on the Strip, Absinthe is a crazy little show performed in a circus-like big top tent outside Caesars Palace on the Strip. Seating is on wooden chairs, and you can buy drinks - which is recommended, since being buzzed is the best way to enjoy this raunchy, bawdy burlesque and variety show with a merciless emcee character. If you want to see something that's shocking and enlivening, and not just the same schlock you'll see at many Strip casinos, try this zany production.

    Absinthe is a really good show - assuming you are not easily offended. It's basically a burlesque and cirque du soleil mashup with a very obnoxious (but funny) MC. The acts are mostly fantastic and the small theater means you are right up there with the action. Definitely worth your time!

    This is a great show. I was not expecting it to be as entertaining as it was. Really hip and hilariously funny. Great acrobatics and in an extremely casual atmosphere. The small tent makes it feel very intimate. It's raunchy and crude, and awesome! Definitely one of the shows to check out.

    This show is sort of like a 2 hour, raunchy spoof of Cirque du Soleil. They make no attempt to conceal that they are making fun of Cirque shows (at some point they even make reference to "French Canadians". The quality of the acts are almost as impressive as Cirque acts, but on a different scale. The tent is smaller, the costumes are generally low budget (one of the solo male performers was literally wearing old basketball shorts for his performance) and some of the acts lack the finesse and polish of a Cirque show, but I found myself almost as impressed with most of the acts as when I am at a Cirque show.

    This show is definitely not for the faint of heart, though. The language is strong and they make a point to pick on many members of the audience throughout the show, and as far as I could tell, they show no mercy so consider yourself warned. I really enjoyed myself, as did the rest of my group, it definitely delivers on the entertainment factor!

    Cirque du Soleil meets Teatro Zinzanni [for those familiar with the act in San Francisco]. It's raunchy - they don't hold back, and it's hilarious. The circus acts - AMAZING.

    Make that trip to Spiegelworld. Visit the gazillionaire. You won't regret it - unless you really can't take a joke...
