    What would you pick? I'm 27 and I'm bringing my newly 21 brother in law and father in law and we are looking to go to either of these. Thoughts?

    I agree with this. Everything about Fantasy is better. X Burlesque is good, but pales in comparison to Fantasy.

    Shoot, you guys are going to make me go to Fantasy now. Last Fall, I went to X Burlesque and Peepshow and I actually liked Burlesque better, enjoyed the small venue more. But if I have to go on your recommendations, it is a sacrifice I am willing to make, :D

    I've seen Fantasy five trips in a row. I've already bought a ticket for the show for my next trip in early June. I'll be seeing it the night of my birthday!!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Have you seen Peepshow? How does Fantasy compare to it?

    Peepshow was better with Holly Madison, but is still a good show. Fantasy is older and not as nice, but still good. X is ok.

    I've seen Peepshow twice. Both times with Holly Madison. I like both shows. Peepshow is a bigger production. Bigger cast, bigger stage, etc. Bigger doesn't always mean better. Both are very entertaining. For me, personally, I'd have to give the edge to Fantasy. I find it more entertaining. Plus, the cast is available for meet & greet after the show at no extra cost. I'm able to take pictures of the cast after the show. That's a big plus for me. I'm a photography nut.

    Fantasy all the way. Tickets go on sale about three months in advance of the show. Get in early and grab a front seat and you will get an eyeful and one of you may end up getting dragged up on stage and publicly humiliated for the duration of the show, lol.

    What do you consider "old"?

    My wife and I have been trying to see Fantasy but there is only one show and it is at 10:30pm.
    Since we tend to stay on Eastern Time that makes it 1:30am.
    By that time the alcohol has done its job and we are an hour or so into our sleep. :eek:

    For a female Vegas dancer? Over 35ish is old IMO...

    None of the Fantasy dancers seem that old to me. Upper 20s is the highest I would go.

    I was curious about this...

    We are probably going to see Fantasy this summer...$75 each & we can see Carrot Top at 8:30 & Fantasy at 10:30. Solid deal.
    We did Peepshow last year...Holly Madison was sad. She cannot dance, act or even walk sexy in high heels. There were several very attractive dancers & the singers were excellent, but it is a production show--loses some of that sexiness of an intimate venue.
    We have seen XBurlesque twice & quite liked it. We found most of the girls very sexy, liked the intimate setting. A true burlesque. We have gotten very inexpensive tickets on ebay (seller: lasvegas4locals, have used them several times for XBurlesque or Vinnie Favorito). BUT the VIP tickets are worth it...so you don't have to sit sideways, which is awkward.
    It will be interesting to compare to Fantasy this summer!
    Age...hmmm...XBurlesque girls all look to be 20s; Peepshow looked like maybe some were a bit older...but doesn't take away. Very sexy.

    Several of the original Fantasy dancers are now in Peepshow, so the show is recognised as producing good performers.

    If burlesque is your thing and you are in Vegas for the first weekend of June, the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekend at the Orleans Hotel is the place to be - four whole days of g-strings and twirling pasties by the best burlesque performers in the world will certainly outclass any of the standard Vegas jiggle shows.
