    I see lots of positive comments on this show. I also see that it appears to be a love it or hate it kind of show. I'm convinced I'd love it, but I'm not sure about my travel partner. He hates "Broadway" type shows, but enjoys comedy. He's also a huge music fan. Neither of us are offended by crude or sexual comedy or innuendos. What exactly does this show consist of? Is it song and dance, comedy, a combination? I hate to spend the money only to bore him to death.

    Thanks for your help!

    My description is Cirque's Evil Twin. I loved it. It is crude and funny.

    It's definitely crude. Definitely funny. And definitely impressive.

    We saw this a few weeks ago. It's VERY politically incorrect so be warned. To me this is the biggest thing to note because if you are offended by the humour, you may be walking out. Other than that, a little bit burlesque, a little bit feats of strength, some comedy, some high-wire, and some singing. All performed in a round theatre so all seating is good.

    Thanks for link. I watched it and felt that much of the stuff seen in the video was stuff I have seen in most other shows. Mostly as "fillers" in between the more elaborate acts.

    So what is it about this show that makes it so much different????

    Are drinks allowed and can I bring in my own drink?

    Watch this video then. While the acts are pretty cool I think all the value is in the comedy and jokes he does. Some pretty funny shit.

    Pretty sure you cant bring drinks in but theres a little bar righ outside before you go into the tent and they have drinks inside. Bought some fruity rum drink for a coktail waitress in there.

    Best show I've seen in Vegas.
    You can't compare it to the Cirque shows because it's so different with the politically incorrect humor intertwined with the performers who are practically on top of you wherever you sit in the venue. You feel like you're right next to them, unlike the cirque shows where you're in a bigger audience sitting further away from the state.

    Don't miss this show. Unless you're easily offended.

    Where else can you get the most offensive sock puppet show on earth AND an amazing high wire act almost directly over your head? Hilarious and breathtaking!
