    In Vegas for 7 nights from Sunday 28th and was wondering if anyone had seen any show lately worth seeing. Haven't been in Vegas in 2 year so a few new good ones must be about. Have tickets for the Jackson cirque at the Mandalay Bay but no other firm plans. Any ideas appreciated..

    I went to see Terry Fator on my last trip, he's revamped his show and it is very funny and entertaining. If you like your magic then there's always Penn and Teller or David Copperfield. If you like comedy magic there is Piff The Magic Dragon at Flamingo, I saw him last year and he is very funny. Burlesque shows are fun as well, I have seen X Burlesque at Flamingo and X Country at Harrahs.

    I would suggest reading a bunch of threads here. Just about every show has been discussed.

    I saw Fator for the first time last week. Better than I expected. He's really talented (and funny). Absinthe is my favorite show in town. Penn & Teller are good. Carrot Top is hilarious. The various Cirque shows get a variety of different opinions. One person's favorite is another person's "worst".

    Have seen Fator twice and loved it both times. May well go again. Seen Love about 7 times and may make it 8, love the Beatles. Saw Coperfield once and was not impressed but might try Penn & Teller.

    We have a winner!

    Same question in many threads right here. There are LOTS of show worth seeing, but hard to say what you might like.

    Absinthe! Swing by the tent outside Caesars Palace during the day and they hand out discount vouchers for the show.

    Save yourself $100....just go into the bathroom, close the door, turn off the lights and cuss yourself out!
