    I saw two in October 2018...Miss Behave Game Show and Tenors of Rock. I enjoyed both. Miss Behave is a risque, kind of random show..but entertaining if you get into the audience interaction.

    Tenors of Rock was excellent..however on my show, one of the guys was sick so it was only 4 of them. Despite missing a member, it was still an outstanding show. I'd go see that one again just for the music and performances.

    Penn & Teller or Mat Franco would top my list (have seen both). If you prefer music to Magic/Comedy - then Bronx Wanderers is very good.

    If you like magic, Mat Franco is really good.

    The Bronx Wanderers if you like Jersey Boys style music.

    Ok, I'm not joking, Wayne Newton was the bomb! I went in with little to no expectations and came out happy as a clam. Tenors of Rock is another great choice and Mac King was a fun little something. Also saw Paranormal and it was pretty entertaining.

    Saw WOW in November, all I can say is I was glad it was a "freebie". I have to admit, there were some interesting acts and I certainly give credit to all performers, I could never do that!

    Bronx Wanderers every time for me. Also love Mac King although you can get tickets for $15 for that.

    Rankings for those shows my wife and/or I have seen (and are still currently playing):

    Yes, we enjoyed and would go again:

    1. Menopause The Musical
    2. Bronx Wanderers
    3. Tenors of Rock
    4. Penn and Teller

    Never again(!): Wow

    My wife and I have seen Menopause The Musical twice (Jan 2018 and Jan 2019) and have really enjoyed it both times (yes, I loved it too). It's a mix of music and comedy; both are great!

    Have seen the Bronx Wanderers (now at the Linq) four times in the last 2 years and loved them every time! As mentioned above, it's Jersey Boys style music with some more current songs thrown in here and there. The show has changed a lot over the last 2 years and it's even better now than before. I plan to see them again next week when I'm in Vegas.

    I have seen Tenors of Rock three times in the last 2 years, This show has gotten much better every time I've gone.

    I saw Penn and Teller once and, even though I'm not a big fan of "magic acts", I enjoyed the show. The humor in it was pretty good. I was staying at the Rio and had a night to kill (after a bad day of gaming). My bad day may have influenced my opinion somewhat. But the show did help me get over my bad day.

    I agree with Happygirl21 that Wow is a waste of time (and a ticket).

    Also, thanks to Happygirl21's review, I now plan to see Wayne Newton (for the first time ever) next week. I was debating about it and Happygirl's review made it a MUST GO.

    Add me to the not wowed by WOW list. That's one to skip unless nothing else works with your schedule.

    Of the current running ones, Penn and Teller would be my pick. Just don't get tickets for the seat with the phone under it, like I did.

    Penn and Teller if they have it available.

    Comedy Cellar can be fine.
    Tenors of Rock will do in a pinch.

    @jgxtrav1 let me just say, Wayne's voice isn't what it once was. But the show had such a fun vibe and people were genuinely enjoying themselves, plus he certainly knows how to work his audience. Have fun and let us know what you guys think!

    Tenors & Rock (I could see them over & over)

    Also: (for one time)
    Penn & Teller
    Harrahs comedy
    Bronx Wanderers
    X Rocks/X Country

    The only other ones I've seen are:
    Legends in Concert (meh, OK for free...)
    Mac King (enjoyable but they will give you a coupon for a free ticket with the price of a drink; btw, avoid the crap slushie drinks)

    I've seen Anthony Cools at Paris ... have to say I laughed pretty hard. He's a hypnotist and so long as you're not the one he's hypnotizing, it's funny LOL

    Mac King, Mat Franco and Penn and Teller all great

    Wish they still had Million Dollar Quartet .. that was great but they did away with it.

    Is Matt Franco no longer on the list? That's an exceptional show!

    Yes Mat Franco is still on the last (I just saw the show in mid February). I loved it, very high energy show. I didn't like Penn and Teller though.

    Unconfirmed, but Mat Franco might not be on the list anymore. It was crossed out when I was just there last week and they mentioned I could buy tickets starting in March. I'm not sure if that meant all the freebies were gone or if it was moving off the list. Great show, though!

    I did just see Xavier Mortimer's Magical Dream. It was pretty entertaining - still needs a little polish on some of the tricks but I enjoyed it.

    Matt Franco is still on the list (I just picked up the new one today). However, I tried to see it last month and was told all diamond tickets for February were gone by February 3rd. It's probably the toughest show to get on the list. Also new this month is The Greatest Piano Men at The Flamingo.

    We just used our Diamond pass for March yesterday to get Mat Franco tickets for later this month. Thanks to those on this board - in another thread - who pointed out that the Mat Franco tickets were limited and difficult to get. Also gave me the information on how to get them. Obviously not of general use to people though - only really works if you are in LV early in the month (we were there on the 1st) and obviously helps if you are wanting to see the show later in the month. We just happen to be going twice this month and wanted to see the show the 2nd time.

    It's funny calling the Bronx Wanderers music Jersey Boy's music. How about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons music.
