Cirque du Soleil



Las Vegas is home to Cirque du Soleil, which is currently performing 8 different shows practically every night! 6 of the shows are a great fun for adults and kids alike, however remember that Zumanity is strictly adult erotic show (that will blow your mind!). Our top picks for best Cirque du Soleil shows to see in Las Vegas are Mystere, O, Zumanity and Ka.

Cirque du Soleil - O

 	las vegas show o

Location: O Theater - Bellagio

Schedule: Almost every night at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm

Age limit: None

Discount Tickets

Review: O is all about fire and water imagery. It's one of the most beautiful, best Las Vegas shows in 2014, featuring skyrocketing and diving acrobatics. Instead of a regular stage, the action is going on in a large water tank. The imagery is incredibly beautiful, something like a mixture of fire and water - after all, the name O is derived from the pronunciation of the French word "Eau", meaning "Water". According to thousands of user reviews, O is one of the most beautiful Cirque du Soleil shows. Many think that O is THE best show in the Las Vegas, ever!

Cirque du Soleil - Mystere

Location: Mystere Theatre - Treasure Island

Schedule: Almost every night at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm

Age limit: None

Discount Tickets

Review: A colorful highly visual show filled with mysterious creatures, performing impossible acrobatics - fun for the whole family. While Mystere does not have a "story" like, for example, Ka - it compensates for it's lack fully by bright costumes, synchronized acrobatics, and impossible tricks. Mystere is among the best shows in Vegas for a family vacation - plus, it's more affordable than the O show reviewd above.

Cirque du Soleil - Ka

Location: Cirque du Soleil Theater - MGM Grand

Schedule: Almost every night at 7:00 pm and 9:30 pm

Age limit: 5+

Review: Ka is a very impressive show that combines acrobatics, martial arts, dance, gorgeous costumes, pyrotechnics and everything you expect from a Cirque du Soleil show. Ka tells a story of separated twin brother and sister who are coming of age and have to undergo ordeals before they can reunite. conducted on a huge stage that can tilt and move, this is one of the most impressive, large-scale best shows in Las Vegas.

Comedy Genre

In Vegas you can find comedy shows in all genres: from improvisations to physical, from surreal to stand-up style. Any modern American comedian can be considered successful if he had at least one performance in Vegas! Some artists are so good that they are invited to perform regularly in the city. Here is a list of my favorite best comedy shows in Las Vegas.

Carrot Top

Location: Atrium Showroom - Luxor Hotel

Schedule: Almost every night at 8:30 pm

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: This show is a mixture of stand up comedy and prop comedy - curly red haired Carrot Top uses unusual props and makes fun of himself, of the human nature and of the American culture among other subjects. If you need a good laugh, this is the place to go! Along with Mystere, Carrot Top tops my list of the best shows in Las Vegasin 2014 in comedy genre.

Blue Man Group

Location: Blue Man Group Theatre - Venetian Hotel & Casino

Schedule: Nightly at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm

Age limit: None

Review: 3 bald and blue men perform visually stunning acts that are a mix of comedy, rock music and modern technology. If that doesn't impress you, you should know that this show is simply hilarious, energetic and very different from everything else you've ever seen. The Blue Man Group performs truly one of the most spectacular, top shows in Las Vegas!

Terry Fator

Location: Terry Fator Theatre - Mirage

Schedule: Practically every day, at 7:30 pm

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: Terry Fator is a ventriloquist. He uses various puppets in his show and does celebrity impressions. It's simply amazing how Terry Fator can use various voices, and sing even better than some "originals". He does perfect impressions of the famous performers - from Lady Gaga to Frank Sinatra. His show is, hands down, one of the most impressive shows in Las Vegas. And, on a personal note, Terry Fator seems like a very nice person and a really cool guy who loves his puppets and his audience.

Absinthe

Location: Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace

Schedule: Tuesday - Sunday at 8:00 pm, Thursday-Saturday - additional show at 10:00 pm

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Absinthe is the ultimate variety show for adults featuring circus acts, comedy and sexy topless girls. The best part of Absinthe is that the action takes place very close to the audience - it seems you can stretch your hand and touch the performers. Which is all the more fun when they perform tightrope walks above your head, or a beautiful half naked girl is dancing in a huge bubble right in front of you! Absinthe is among the best adult comedy shows in Las Vegas in 2014.

Adult Genre

We know you want to see an adult show! After all, this is Vegas! While there is no lack of adult entertainment in Vegas, not all of them are created equal. We've checked out many adult shows and would love to recommend the following shows.

All adult shows

Zumanity

Zumanity

Location: Zumanity Theater - New York - New York Hotel & Casino

Schedule: Almost every night at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Zumanity shows the naughty, sexy, spunky side of Cirque du Soleil. In this provocative show Cirque du Soleil promotes the message that human body is beautiful, and that in sex there are no taboos - and that includes dress-up games and roleplays. Zumanity explores sexuality through the use of humor, acrobatics, gymnastics and sexy costumes. Zumanity is among the best shows in Las Vegas in the adult category!

Thunder From Down Under

Thunder From Down Under

Location: Thunder From Down Under Theatre - Excalibur Hotel & Casino

Schedule: Every night at 9:00 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays - also at 11:00 pm.

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Thunder From Down Under is a true delight! The show features all Australian male dancers, and will make a great girls night out or a bachelorette party! Girls, the guys are so yummy you shouldn't drag your boyfriends or husbands into this! And in case you are wondering, the Thunder guys will let you touch anything...yes, anything...It's one the two best shows in Las Vegas in 2014 for bachelorette parties, with the other being Chippendales!

Chippendales

Chippendales

Location: Chippendales Theatre - Rio Hotel

Schedule: Daily at 8:00 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays - also at 10:30 pm

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Chippendales are in direct rivalry with Thunder From Down Under...We really don't know which one is the winner of the best shows in Las Vegas in 2014 in the male dance genre! Hot bodies, very very hot. Dancing may need a bit more synchronizing, but we don't go there to see synchronicity - we have the Bellagio Fountains for that, right? Perhaps the main difference between Chippendales and Thunder From Down Under is that in Chippendales the sexy men are more...varied!

Musicals & Broadway

There aren't many musicals in Vegas, it's not that kind of city, you know! The only great musical we are left with right now is Jersey Boys. However, if you want to see a funny musical - try Menopause The Musical, or Nunsense.

Jersey Boys

Location: Le Theatre Des Arts - Paris Hotel

Schedule: Saturday-Thursday at 4 pm

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: Jersey Boys is a musical abut the highly popular rock and pop group Four Seasons - how the unknown guys from New Jersey met, what they've been through to become the legendary band. At the show, you can hear some of Four Seasons' best hits. Many people agree that it's one of the best Las Vegas musicals.

Impersonators

There are quite a few impersonator shows in Vegas, and even city tours conducted by impersonators. You can catch a show with anyone from Marilyn Monroe to Elvis to Britney Spears! However, the best of the best shows in Las Vegas in 2014 in the impersonator genre are Divas and Vegas! The Show !

Divas Las Vegas With Frank Moreno

Divas Las Vegas With Frank Moreno

Location: The Quad Showroom at Quad Resort & Casino

Schedule: Every night except Friday at 9:30 pm

Discount Tickets

Review: Divas Las Vegas With Frank Moreno is one of the funniest best shows in Las Vegas involving all-male impersonators of female artists. This is incredible what these guys can do when dancing and impersonating Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce and others! The similarity is stunning and the show is very funny. The drag show is headed by Frank Moreno, who performs the role of Joan Rivers and his stand up comic acts are unmatched. Highly recommended - Divas is one of the best, most funny shows in Las Vegas if you want a good laugh!

Vegas! The Show

Vegas! The Show

Location: Saxe Theater - Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Schedule: Daily at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm

Age limit: None

Discount Tickets

Review: Vegas! The Show recreates important moments from the history of Las Vegas through musical performances. The show takes you back in time into the 50's and features impersonations of the top performers who helped shape Las Vegas - Elvis Presley, Rat Pack, Tina Turner and others. It's one of the best shows in Las Vegas in the impersonator genre!

Magic Genre

Do you enjoy illusions, magic tricks and mind-blowing hypnotic shows? Among the enormous multitude of shows, I have selected several best shows in Las Vegas in the magic genre! But remember - although magic shows are usually associated with childhood, some of these shows are not for children's eyes and ears at all! Keep an eye on the age restrictions to know what you are in for.

Penn and Teller

Penn and Teller

Location: Penn & Teller Theater - Rio Hotel

Schedule: Saturday-Wednesday at 9:00 pm

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: Penn and Teller is an amazing show where the "magicians" actually reveal some of their "secrets", but when you expect it the least they will amaze you with a completely different trick! Penn And Teller are not regular magicians - they are also very funny, smart, and a little bit too political. Many of their jokes have to do with politics and it seems they aren't afraid of anything, which actually makes this one of the best shows in Las Vegas. Although it's mostly Penn who talks, while Teller does the tricks.

Jan Rouven: Illusions

Jan Rouven: Illusions poster

Location: Starlite Theatre - Riviera Hotel & Casino

Schedule: Almost every night at 7:00 pm

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: This show features death-defying stunts: Jan Rouven is able to escape from the most horrible situations where the escape seems impossible. Jan Rouven is a younger among Las Vegas illusionists, and he is full of enthusiasm and you can really see how much he loves doing shows. And his smile is to die for! I included Jan Rouven into my list of the best magic shows in Las Vegas because I feel that this guy has a huge potential and a great future.

All Vegas Magic Shows

Hypnosis Genre

These shows are not your regular hypnosis (if that can be regular!) - they are simply hilarious, and very, very adult. The masters of hypnosis make volunteers do and say stuff they would never, ever dare to do in their real life by making them lose their natural inhibitions. This offers the audience who is not hypnotized plenty of opportunities to laugh!

Marc Savard Comedy Hypnosis

Location: V Theater - Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Schedule: From Saturday to Thursday at 10:00 pm

Age limit: 18+

Discount Tickets

Review: Marc Savard's hypnosis show is one of the most hilarious, very adult-oriented best shows in Las Vegas in 2014. In this show, Marc Savard hypnotizes volunteers from the audience and makes them do very funny and inappropriate things they would never do in real life. I would actually love to volunteer next time I see his show!

Live Music Genre

You probably already know that the city is the beloved spot of all rock and pop singers in the world, and they visit here all the time! Most of the performers come for 1 night, but some of them host regular shows - for example, Celine Dion and Elton John. If you check out the calendar of all Las Vegas concerts, you will have a great idea which performer visits when, so you can plan your vacation accordingly!


Celine Dion

Location: Colosseum at Caesars Palace

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: If there is a singer who deserved a long-term contract to perform in Las Vegas - it's Celine Dion! No wonder they've built a theatre just for her at Caesar's Palace - it's called Colosseum and is resembling the original Colosseum in Italy. Her voice is simply unbelievable. I've been dancing to her new song she sings in French "Je voudrais parler a mon Pere" non stop for a few months now! In her Celine Dion is backed up dancers, and the show is amazing. She does not perform year-round, but if you are in Vegas when she is performing - don't even hesitate to watch her - she puts on one of the best shows in Las Vegas!

Boxing & UFC

Las Vegas Boxing poster

In addition to multiple concerts, among the best shows in Las Vegas you can find boxing and UFC fights every once in a while. You can catch a UFC or boxing event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Pearl Concert Theater At Palms Casino Resort or Mandalay Bay. Unfortunately, they are not performed regularly, but I will keep an eye on the fights for you and publish the schedule right here. Check back often!

Kids And Family

In all honesty, Las Vegas is not very child-oriented city, but you probably already know that! There are, however, a few very good shows you could take your children to - for example, most of Cirque du Soleil shows except Zumanityare quite appropriate for children. And here are a few more shows that your little ones will definitely enjoy!

Le Reve

le reve show las vegas

Location: Le Reve Theater at Wynn Las Vegas

Schedule: Friday-Tuesday at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: Le Reve is amazingly beautiful circus type of show, with acrobatics, gymnastics, incredible costumes and visual effects. Le Reve is a bit similar to both O and Mystere by Cirque du Soleil. The show explores the realm of visions and dreams and you actually feel like you are living in a dream. Many of its acts take place in water, but performers are found pretty much everywhere around the audience - it seems they appear out of nowhere. It's one of the most beautiful and our family's top choice of the best shows in Las Vegas for fmailies with kids.

V-The Ultimate Variety

Location: V Theater - Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Schedule: Nightly, at 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm

Age limit: None

Discount Tickets

Review: V-the Ultimate Variety features artists performing magic tricks, stand up comedy, stunts and more. This is clean version of the adult show Absinthe, and it's pretty much circus-like. While I wouldn't recommend to watch this show on your own or with kids older than, let's say 7, but if you have little kids ages 2 to 5, it's pretty much one of the best shows in Las Vegas for kids.
