“… a show with an attitude. Full of Vegas vulgarity and genuine artistry, it is the must-see event of the spring!”

Following rave reviews and standing ovations during its opening week, ABSINTHE by Spiegelworld, the #1 Greatest Show in Las Vegas history according to Las Vegas Weekly, has announced a final extension of its season at L.A. LIVE with new shows now on sale through May 28. 

“Absinthe is raunchy, rowdy, and the acts will completely blow your mind,” said LA Weekly.

Producer and host of the show, the filthy rich and just plain filthy Gazillionaire said, "What used to only happen in Vegas is now happening in downtown Los Angeles. And I have to say, the audiences here have impressed me with what they’re up for. So we’ll stay a few weeks longer, if the booze doesn’t run out first. Who said people in LA don’t drink?”

After the Los Angeles opening last week, said ABSINTHE is “sexy and loaded with nearly a dozen acts whose jaw-dropping talents will blow you away … an unforgettable theatrical event that you should experience at least once in your lifetime.” called ABSINTHEa state of the art dreamland for adults. That is the world we can all use right now, making ABSINTHE the perfect vehicle for 2017.”

Bill Handel, Host of The Bill Handel Show on KFI-AM 640 said, "Absolutely hilarious, incredible acrobatics and so 'blue' it's almost black. You're going to love it."  

Stage and Cinema said, “I recommend arriving drunk and high, in a taxi or a rented car you’re going to abandon,” and in an earlier review said, “Loud, abrasive and in your face … the show wears its vulgarity like a badge of honor.  The large audience whooped and hollered through the entire evening.” 

Las Vegas Weekly, in naming ABSINTHE the #1 greatest show in Las Vegas history ever, said, “A performance of ABSINTHE is almost criminally fun.   It is the domain of the Gazillionaire, the gold-toothed, foul-mouthed, lecherous dirtbag who runs the show.  For the entirety of ABSINTHE’s 90 wildly entertaining minutes, you feel like you’ve discovered something new, or stumbled onto a secret meeting of acrobats, dancers and reprobates.  And the first thing you want to do after is tell everyone you know.”

Inspired by the absinthe-drenched cabarets of late 19th century Europe, ABSINTHE, is an adult-themed cocktail of circus, comedy, burlesque and vaudeville for a 21st century audience. Guests enter the seductively intimate environment of Spiegelworld’s tent where the artists perform on a central circular stage only 9 feet in diameter.  In Las Vegas, ABSINTHE has been playing to sold-out audiences at the world’s most famous casino, Caesars Palace, since 2011 and celebrates its sixth anniversary there in April. Over its Las Vegas run, more than 1 million have seen ABSINTHE.
