Le Reve

Where: Le Reve Theater at Wynn Las Vegas

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

Age limit: 5+

Discount Tickets

Review: Le Reve is, hands down, the most popular, best Las Vegas show. It's an 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 couples, friends and families with kids.

One of the best shows in Las Vegas that showcases incredible rock-n-roll from Hendrix to Led Zeppelin to Queen is Raiding the Rock Vault. This unbelievable show highlights the talents of real rock stars that have performed with bands such as Meatloaf, Whitesnake, Lynch Mob and Quiet Riot.

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, and Ka.

Cirque du Soleil - O

When: 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 Vegas shows, 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

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 Las Vegas for a family vacation - plus, it's more affordable than the O show reviewed above.

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 Vegas in 2019-2020 in comedy genre.

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.

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 2019 and 2020.

One of the more unique, intriguing, best shows in Las Vegas for you to see is the amazing Tape Face. Performing at the House of Tape within Harrah’s, the show is the delightful creation of Sam Wills who even made Simon Cowell smile on America’s Got Talent. Tape Face brings nothing but laughter to the stage with his actions that make the audience smile and wonder in bewilderment. As he stands on stage your first thought is he is a mixture of terror and horror like Mike Meyers but in the end you will be rolling in the aisle with tearful laughter. He brings his experience from Clown School into play when he transforms the stage into a three ring circus that only he can control. Don’t be scared when you get the evil eye and don’t be shy if he calls you up on stage to have fun.

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 2019 and 2020 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!

Penn and Teller
Penn and Teller

Where: Penn & Teller Theater - Rio Hotel

When: 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.

best shows in Las Vegas in 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

Review: Marc Savard's hypnosis show is one of the most hilarious, very adult-oriented best shows in Las Vegas in 2019 and 2020. 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!

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.
