Las Vegas does not lack in options for entertainment. Whatever you are interested in is there – from concerts to Cirque shows to magic shows to full-on Broadway productions. But the best time you will have in Vegas is Absinthe – which takes place every night in a tent outside of Caesar’s Palace.

Absinthe is a cool mix consisting of equal parts: beauty, wonder, comedy, raunchiness, and amazing. As the New York Times notes, “Imagine Cirque du Soleil as channeled through ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show.’”

The critically acclaimed show describes itself as an “acro-cabaret variety show”. The variety show is performed in the round so you can watch these world-class performers show off  amazing feats of strength, balance, danger and insane flexibility – and do it with a sense of style that is totally unique to this show.

If you have been to any “cirque” type of show, then you know, the things these performers can do is incredible.  It’s seems like these things these performers do are impossible, but they are and throughout the show they will blow your mind!

I mean, look at this:

That’s crazy!!!

Now here is where this particular Las Vegas show differs from some of the other Vegas shows that include similar types of performers.  The show is emceed by “The Gazillionaire” who, you should definitely know this in advance, is not for everyone. But, if you are not easily offended and like to laugh your ass off, you will get a kick out of him and the entire show – just maybe don’t bring your more conservative parents with you.

If you are planning on going, save some cash and grab your Absinthe tickets starting at just $89 (save $20 a ticket!) by using the code 20AMP here.

You can use some of the cash you save on tickets on a drink or two at the beer garden just outside the show on the Caesar’s Palace property.

Now: a pro-tip when buying tickets: the venue is pretty intimate and the chairs in the back (well, seating area as some of the “chairs” are actually padded toilets, bathtubs, and other odd things) are raised and give you a really good view of everything going on with Absinthe.
