The Absinthe Las Vegas show has been getting a lot of attention, and much of that attention is positive. Not exactly for everyone, the show mixes old-world burlesque with some rather outrageous comedy. Serving as a complement are circus-style acts that often leave audience members in awe. Because of its relative raunchiness, Absinthe is an adults-only show, and you better think twice if you are considering bringing your parents, your in-laws, or your boss along. Unless, that is, you think that they can handle the overall edginess. Think of it as Moulin Rouge meets Cirque du Soleil meets Andrew Dice Clay.
About The Show
About The Show
The Absinthe Las Vegas show is held stripside at Caesars Palace in a venue that resembles a circus tent. Audience members are positioned around a small stage, and the overall atmosphere is intimate. Even the row of seats that is furthest from the stage affords good views, though there are some reviewers who have said that they didn’t enjoy optimal sightlines. Something to consider when purchasing tickets. As for the actual show itself, it is hosted by a provocative, foul-mouthed MC who goes by the name of Gazillionaire. His sidekick, Penny Pibbets, is rather raucous herself and certainly adds to the comedic approach. Throughout the Absinthe show, a diverse mix of acts that range from seductive to awe-inspiring keep audience members in full attention. One of the acts features a character known as “The Weather Girl” who gets inside a life-size balloon. Her wardrobe consists of nothing more than pasties and something that resembles a bikini bottom. Another performer, “The Green Fairy,” sings while doing a burlesque-style striptease, and at one point, three male tight-rope walkers do shots of Jack Daniels as well as keg stands while balancing above the crowd. This is just a snippet of what to expect, and be warned if you choose to sit especially close to the stage, as chances are good that you will either be the focus of jokes or become a performer yourself.
Tickets for the Absinthe Las Vegas show start at around $100. Prices increase if you opt for VIP Reserved Seating or the even more exclusive VVIP Reserved Seating. The VIP Reserved Seating tickets allow for second or third row seating, as well as a split of champagne or a non-alcoholic beverage.
