    Every penny..... would pay to see it again. It is very funny, but you have to have an open mind and not be easily offended. It is raunchy humor with some acrobatics thrown in. My girl and I seen it last year and we both loved it.

    It's better if you don't know and just go. That's how I first saw it and it's my favorite show in Vegas.

    Go without knowing too much. No need to spoil the show. If you aren't easily (or even less-than-easily offended) you may want to stay away. However, if you want to have a good laugh and see some amazing circus-like acrobatics, then I'd recommend this show.

    I'm not a "show" person - at all - but I saw this with my wife, then went back to Vegas with my father and went to see it again. I'm going back to Vegas in April with three other guys and might go see it again. My point? It is a show a lot of different people will like - as long as (like others have said) you are not easily offended.

    I would definitely recommend Absinthe. If you love crude, rude humor you'll love it. I'm actually tempted to go see it again this time year as well. I agree with johnvic as well. It really is the Dark side of Cirque.

    Absinthe is an adult-humor variety show with a sleazy self-promoting MC and his innocent, but twisted, assistant.

    A man sits at a table drinking Absinthe. The Green Fairy arrives as part of his drink-induced hallucinations. And, the show goes on...

    I sincerely think Absinthe is the best show in Las Vegas.
