    My boyfriend and I have been going to Vegas every year for about 6 years now. Kind of stumped at what show to see this time. We will be in Vegas Aug. 31 through Sept. 5. We have seen the following:
    Absinthe, Michael Jackson One, Penn & Teller, Ka, Love, Human Nature, Vinny Favorito, and Andrew Dice Clay.

    We love to go see at least one great show every visit. Any suggestions? Thanks very much.

    It looks like you enjoy comedy so I would suggest Carrot Top . Raiding the Rock Vault is a good show for music.

    Thanks for your suggestions! Mystere and Jersey Boys sound like a good choice. Probably try to go to at least one of them. Hopefully both.

    I like "O" at the Bellagio but off your list I would choose KA.

    I second the Carrot Top suggestion. If you are like me, you're probably thinking Carrot Top is stupid and not funny. That was my believe until about a month ago until I was enticed to go after seeing so many favorable reviews. This show is f'n funny and one of the best values show wise in Las Vegas. Go see Carrot Top and it will be one of the highlights of your upcoming trip.

    Carrot Top is the most obvious one absent from your list if you are trying to go to the best Vegas shows. Jersey Boys and Raiding the Rock Vault are also both very good as others have said.

    That's funny cuz my boyfriend wanted to go see Carrot Top but I am definitely not a fan of him cuz I thought his act was stupid and NOT funny. Maybe I will have to reconsider.

    Carrot Top jokes in his act that it's the best show that you'll see that you really didn't want to see. It's a great time and a great value as others have mentioned.

    Mystere is the most entertaining Cirque in my opinion and I have seen almost all of them. It does not have any slow moments and is usually very affordable.

    I also agree that Carrot Top was not funny. His humor is just too over the top for me, no cleverness.

    That was how I felt exactly and resisted going for years. Finally went earlier this month and now I'm ticked that I waited so long, he was hilarious! I also love the Jersey Boys and Raiding the Rock Vault. I would go see any of those 3 again.

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions. Based on people's recommendations, we got tickets to Jersey Boys and Mystere. Carrot Top is still up in air. If we find ourselves looking for another show to go to, Carrot Top will be the one. This is why I love this board! Everyone here is so helpful and full of fantastic tips and recommendations. Thanks again!

    Go see Le Reve, Carrot Top (it sounds stupid - you will leave shocked at how much you enjoyed him) and Mystere.

    Rock of Ages at the Venetian is frickin' hilarious! If you like 80's rock music, sexy women, and cheesy humor... you will enjoy it.
