One Green Fairy, Two Roller-skaters, Three Tightrope Walkers. Four Tap Shoes

One green fairy, two roller-skaters, three tightrope walkers. four tap shoes and that doesnt even begin to take inventory of the entire show. ABSINTHE–now in its seventh year under the big top tent in front of Caesars Palace—takes a lot of explaining. The dick jokes are the least offensive things you'll hear (and see) all night, a guy taking a bath in his blue jeans gets the entire audience aroused, a burlesque-inspired green fairy descends from the apex of the room, and you simply cannot comprehend how a grown woman can fit inside a balloon.

The ringmaster of this deranged circus is The Gazillionaire. Together with his comedic sidekick/foul-mouthed protogé Wanda Widdles they entertain and insult the audience as the center stage resets for each act. A Sin City favorite since opening in April 2011, The Gazillionaire and the rest of the raucous bunch at ABSINTHE continue to deliver their jaw-dropping performances and entertainment that fans have come to know and love.

Front-row seats are closer to the action, but if you want to see the water drip off the abs of a half-naked adonis taking a bath on stage, premium seating isn't the only cost you'll incur. You'll also have to cover up with a plastic sheet as these seats are also in the splash zone. And when Gaz says don't stand up during an act—don't stand up or you could easily get kicked in the head by a roller-skating duo swinging around on stage.

Melodie Sweet descends from the heaven as the Green Fairy, singing and stripping down to her green pasties. There's plenty of skin and sensuality to go around for everyone. A female duo performs aerial acts. Two muscle-bound men strike erotic yoga poses, counter-balncing each other in an unbeleivable display of strength, balance, poise, and beauty. Twin tap dancers, Sean and John, duel on stage, and you won't believe your eyes when you see a woman intertwine her body  into and out of a giant balloon.

Guests will find the ABSINTHE venue suitable for all seasons, integrating the old-world charm, theater-in-the-round presentation and intimate nature that audiences have embraced.
