Absinthe is one of the funniest shows on the strip and it is getting rave reviews from everyone. It is at Caesars Palace in the Roman Plaza in back of Serendipity3 and with beer gardens that are decorated with old time themes and d├ęcor. Off to the side is a green door entrance for VIP’s who can enter and relax in hammocks, plush lounge chairs. It is decorated with hanging crystal chandeliers and private sitting areas.

A plus is that the VIP’s enter the tent first and they get front row seats. At first it looks like a great deal but once the show starts the acts are practically on top of the first row patrons. It immediately seems very dangerous when the skating duo get on the small round stage and start spinning around that one feels like they are going to fly into the audience. It is very thrilling not knowing whether to duck or stay seated and definitely do not stand up. Luckily I was in the second row but I still had concerns. It was amazing how they performed such skill and speed on a small round stage in the center of the tent.

The star of the show is The Gazillionaire who is like a crazy, mad Wild Hatter who captures the audience as soon as he appears on stage. His assistant Penny is so outrageous and absolutely funny and my sides were splitting with laughter as she did her sock puppet routine, which is for an adult only audience. I am still laughing as I write this and think of her sock puppets. It is worth going back just to see Penny perform this again.

Many other strange and funny men were hanging around on side swings, and the tight rope walk was a hold your breath moment until the men were safe on their stands. It was thrilling to watch their perfect balance and skills on the rope.

Spiegelworld has given us this opportunity to enter their playground and become a child again in the wonderful world of a carnival circus that is put together brilliantly. The comedy is outrageous and for 90 minutes you will forget all your worries as you sit in this tent and watch in amazement how they all perform on such a small round center stage. I guarantee that you will still be smiling and laughing after leaving the show.


Show times are Tuesday through Saturday 8 pm & 10 pm, Wednesday & Sunday 8 pm, Dark on Mondays. I definitely will be back with many friends to see this wonderful show again and spend some time in the beer gardens after the show.
