December With so much going on in the city and so many cool things to do and see, it may be hard to decide, especially if you have only a few days to explore the city, or find the cheapest tickets. I have checked out all shows playing in , and am happy to present you with my reviews of the best Vegas shows. Keep reading to find out about the top shows, or use these quick links to jump to the types of shows that interest you the most!
Le Reve is amazingly beautiful circus type of show, with acrobatics, gymnastics, incredible costumes and visual effects. The show explores the realm of visions and dreams and you actually feel like you are living in a dream.
Many of its acts take place in water, but performers are found pretty much everywhere around the audience - it seems they appear out of nowhere.
It's one of the most beautiful and our family's top choice of the best shows in Las Vegas for families with kids. Cirque du Soleil Las Vegas is home to Cirque du Soleil, which is currently performing 8 different shows practically every night!
Cirque du Soleil - O Location: O Theater - Bellagio Hotel Schedule: Almost every night at 7: O is all about fire and water imagery. It's one of the most beautiful, best shows in Las Vegas in , featuring skyrocketing and diving acrobatics. Instead of a regular stage, the action is going on in a large water tank. The imagery is incredibly beautiful, something like a mixture of fire and water - after all, the name O is derived from the pronunciation of the French word "Eau", meaning "Water".
According to thousands of user reviews, O is one of the most beautiful Cirque du Soleil shows. Cirque du Soleil - Mystere Location: Mystere Theatre - Treasure Island Schedule: A colorful highly visual show filled with mysterious creatures, performing impossible acrobatics - fun for the whole family.
While Mystere does not have a "story" like, for example, Ka - it compensates for it's lack fully by bright costumes, synchronized acrobatics, and impossible tricks. Mystere is among the best shows in Vegas for a family vacation - plus, it's more affordable than the O show reviewed above.
Cirque du Soleil - Ka Location: Ka is a very impressive show that combines acrobatics, martial arts, dance, gorgeous costumes, pyrotechnics and everything you expect from a Cirque du Soleil show. Ka tells a story of separated twin brother and sister who are coming of age and have to undergo ordeals before they can reunite.
Comedy Genre In Vegas you can find comedy shows in all genres: Any modern American comedian can be considered successful if he had at least one performance in Vegas! Some artists are so good that they are invited to perform regularly in the city. Here is a list of my favorite best comedy shows in Las Vegas. Atrium Showroom - Luxor Hotel Schedule: Almost every night at 8: This show is a mixture of stand up comedy and prop comedy - curly red haired Carrot Top uses unusual props and makes fun of himself, of the human nature and of the American culture among other subjects.
If you need a good laugh, this is the place to go! Blue Man Group Location: Blue Man Theater, Luxor Schedule: If that doesn't impress you, you should know that this show is simply hilarious, energetic and very different from everything else you've ever seen. Terry Fator Theatre - Mirage Schedule: Practically every day, at 7: Terry Fator is a ventriloquist.
He uses various puppets in his show and does celebrity impressions. It's simply amazing how Terry Fator can use various voices, and sing even better than some "originals". He does perfect impressions of the famous performers - from Lady Gaga to Frank Sinatra. His show is, hands down, one of the most impressive shows in Las Vegas. And, on a personal note, Terry Fator seems like a very nice person and a really cool guy who loves his puppets and his audience. Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace Schedule: Tuesday - Sunday at 8: Absinthe is the ultimate variety show for adults featuring circus acts, comedy and sexy topless girls.
The best part of Absinthe is that the action takes place very close to the audience - it seems you can stretch your hand and touch the performers. Which is all the more fun when they perform tightrope walks above your head, or a beautiful half naked girl is dancing in a huge bubble right in front of you! Absinthe is among the best adult comedy shows in Las Vegas in Adult Genre We know you want to see an adult show! After all, this is Vegas!
While there is no lack of adult entertainment in Vegas, not all of them are created equal. We've checked out many adult shows and would love to recommend the following shows. Zumanity shows the naughty, sexy, spunky side of Cirque du Soleil.
In this provocative show Cirque du Soleil promotes the message that human body is beautiful, and that in sex there are no taboos - and that includes dress-up games and roleplays. Zumanity explores sexuality through the use of humor, acrobatics, gymnastics and sexy costumes.
Zumanity is among the best shows in Las Vegas in the adult category! Thunder From Down Under Location: Every night at 9: On Fridays and Saturdays - also at Thunder From Down Under is a true delight!
The show features all Australian male dancers, and will make a great girls night out or a bachelorette party! Girls, the guys are so yummy you shouldn't drag your boyfriends or husbands into this! And in case you are wondering, the Thunder guys will let you touch anything It's one the two best shows in Las Vegas in for bachelorette parties, with the other being Chippendales!
Chippendales Theatre - Rio Hotel Schedule: Chippendales are in direct rivalry with Thunder From Down Under We really don't know which one is the winner of the best shows in Las Vegas in in the male dance genre!
Hot bodies, very very hot. Dancing may need a bit more synchronizing, but we don't go there to see synchronicity - we have the Bellagio Fountains for that, right? Perhaps the main difference between Chippendales and Thunder From Down Under is that in Chippendales the sexy men are more Impersonators There are quite a few impersonator shows in Vegas, and even city tours conducted by impersonators.
However, the best of the best shows in Las Vegas in in the impersonator genre are Divas and Vegas! The Linq Las Vegas Schedule: Every night except Friday at 9: This is incredible what these guys can do when dancing and impersonating Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce and others! The similarity is stunning and the show is very funny. The drag show is headed by Frank Moreno, who performs the role of Joan Rivers and his stand up comic acts are unmatched.
Highly recommended - Divas is one of the best, most funny shows in Las Vegas if you want a good laugh! The Show recreates important moments from the history of Las Vegas through musical performances.
The show takes you back in time into the 50's and features impersonations of the top performers who helped shape Las Vegas - Elvis Presley, Rat Pack, Tina Turner and others. It's one of the best shows in Las Vegas in the impersonator genre! Complete Review Magic Genre Do you enjoy illusions, magic tricks and mind-blowing hypnotic shows? Among the enormous multitude of shows, I have selected several best shows in Las Vegas in the magic genre!
But remember - although magic shows are usually associated with childhood, some of these shows are not for children's eyes and ears at all! Keep an eye on the age restrictions to know what you are in for. Penn and Teller Location: Penn and Teller is an amazing show where the "magicians" actually reveal some of their "secrets", but when you expect it the least they will amaze you with a completely different trick!
Penn And Teller are not regular magicians - they are also very funny, smart, and a little bit too political. Many of their jokes have to do with politics and it seems they aren't afraid of anything, which actually makes this one of the best shows in Las Vegas. Although it's mostly Penn who talks, while Teller does the tricks. Hypnosis Genre These shows are not your regular hypnosis if that can be regular! The masters of hypnosis make volunteers do and say stuff they would never, ever dare to do in their real life by making them lose their natural inhibitions.
This offers the audience who is not hypnotized plenty of opportunities to laugh! Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis Location: From Saturday to Thursday at Marc Savard's hypnosis show is one of the most hilarious, very adult-oriented best shows in Las Vegas in In this show, Marc Savard hypnotizes volunteers from the audience and makes them do very funny and inappropriate things they would never do in real life. I would actually love to volunteer next time I see his show!
