    Looking to do something different while we are on a bachelor party in Vegas in feb. Wanted to do a show of some kind and don't know what would be best for a group our age. Looking to Spend $100 or less on tickets and something that would keep us entertained. Not into dancing and things though. Any siggestions would be awesome.

    Absinthe is a good choice with prices normally $80-$90 per ticket. I also highly suggest Blue Man group. I haven't seen them since they moved to MC, but I've never heard of someone not enjoying that show. BMG can be pricey though.

    Absinthe! There is always a guy handing out $20 off coupons in front of their box office at Caesars. I pissed myself laughing more than once during the show.

    1) Absinthe
    2) Fantasy at Luxor was nice if you want topless (been a few years) - I would say Peepshow if Angel was there but she isn't
    3) There are always comedy shows in town - The Mirage has been getting me in there once a trip to see the headliners.

    Carrot Top !! SO funny, and it's really reasonable. Tickets are $38 on Goldstar.com. Pretty sure I've never laughed so hard in my life.

    Blue Man is good too, entertaining! But I'd go with Carrot Top if given the choice.

    Since it's a bachelor party maybe Peepshow? I didn't enjoy it though, but I'm a girl, maybe it'd be a cheap thrill for a guy haha.

    Penn & Teller. Irreverent, smart, funny and usually not hard to find discounted tickets.

    avoid anything cirque related..... Its cool to see but you're just gonna get bored and fall asleep at some point.

    Check MGM's website and see who is playing at Brad Garret's comedy club when you are there. Tickets are around $70 each and I know they usually have them at the half price ticket store. I've seen 2 shows there. 1 was the best comedy show I've been to (brad garrett happened to be there that night and there were 2 extra guests that stopped in, in addition to the 2 that were playing that night). The second show I went to was just ok... so definately check out some youtube clips of the people that are gonna be there that night... b/c sometimes it might not be worth the money. That being said, they do usually manage to get some pretty good up and comers and sometimes even some headliners. Its a small venue so no seats are really that bad... just make sure you go for drinks before you go to the comedy club b/c the bar tab can add up quick.
    Another show that looks pretty good for a bachelor party is Vinny Favorito at the Flamingo... I haven't seen him but the reviews looked really good when i was looking him up for a recent bachelor party trip. (maybe someone on the board can give input on that show).

    2 Shows, 1 property...LUXOR.

    8:30 CARROT TOP, $48-$59 DARK Tuesday
    10:30 FANTASY, $39-$59 nightly...

    I suggest sitting in the Front/center section...up at the
    top...furthest back from the stage unlesss (of course)... you want
    to get in on the 'shots' of Crown Royal that CARROT TOP passes
    out...then sit closer, lol.

    This area works great for both Shows...
    Call the box office for tics 1.800.288.1000

    Absinthe or Carrot Top. I have done both on guy trips and both were big hits.

    Fantasy. It’s not only topless; there is an impersonator in the show that is funny as hell. Get front row and notify them of your bachelor party. They might do something special for the groom.

    When I was there a chick down front had notified them of her boyfriend’s birthday and they pulled him up on stage. The impersonator also kept messing with him throughout the show. It was good show.

    Carrot Top all the way. A good comedy show can start your night off in a good mood and Carrot Top is hilarious!
