Where there's thunder, there's usually rain. And so it's no surprise that at the "Thunder From Down Under," it's always raining men.The all-male dance revue makes one promise of the night: to make sure you get exactly what you came for. And the Aussie imports make good on their promises, giving the females a feast of flesh and fantasy the Greek Gods would be proud of.Each performer embodies a different female fantasy and brings it to life on stage whether it's a sexy man in uniform, a fireman or a milkman (Yep we were thinking about Kelis' "Milkshake," but now it has a completely different meaning for us.). Dancers show more than their personalities on stage, leaving little to the imagination and lots of grins on the audiences' faces as their routines cover the gamut of popular music.The key to Thunder's continuing success on the Las Vegas Strip, the show has been a resident attraction for more than decade, are the men. Sure they all look AMAZING, but these guys are more then just their pecs. It's all about the performance so the physique goes hand-in-hand with a great on-stage personality and smoking-hot dance moves. Yes women love a guy who can dance, especially a guy who can pull out all the moves while wearing very little.The dancers' Australian accents and the general lack of husbands and boyfriends in the audience (although men are welcome) creates a very liberating atmosphere for female audience members. Ladies, cast those inhibitions aside. Thunder From Down Under is a fully interactive experience. These chiseled performers dance on tabletops, make their way through the crowd and even ask some lucky ladies to join them on stage.Once piece of advice, you may need a earplugs. This is one loud show! And it's not the music we're talking about. The enthusiastic screams and shouts coming from behind the closed doors of the Thunder From Down Under Showroom are a muted version of what actually takes place inside the theater. Thunder from Down Under encourages its audience members to be as vocal as they want. So ladies, let loose. This show is perfect for bachelorette parties, divorce parties and the ultimate girls' night out.

Frank Marino sizzles in Divas Starring Frank Marino. After starring in "La Cage" at Riviera for more than 20 years, this Vegas icon is taking audiences by storm in his show at The LINQ. During the 75-minute revue, superstar female impersonators portray famous divas including Britney Spears, Cher, Madonna, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross and Beyonce. Marino stars as comic icon Joan Rivers and host of the show.Divas Starring Frank Marino opens with Lady Gaga's "Let's Dance." A female impersonator portraying Lady Gaga lip-syncs to the chart-topping hit while six attractive male back-up dancers help get the party started on stage. Wearing a short, white, patent leather dress, sparkling glasses and a blonde wig, this Lady Gaga has all the pizzazz of the real performer.Next, Marino enters to greet the audience and tell a few jokes.You won't believe what we have going on back stage, says Marino. We have Madonna, Cher and Bette Midler getting ready, and they're all shaving in the same mirror.As the show's emcee, Marino is sassy, spunky and stunning in his ever-changing wardrobe of extravagant sparkling gowns and feather boas. He puts on a different outfit between each act, bringing an international whirlwind of couture to the stage with every entrance."This damn dress is made like a cheap hotel, there's no ballroom," jokes Marino after walking on stage wearing a fitted evening gown.People watch in amazement as each new female impersonator takes the stage. Although the performers don't sing, they emulate every aspect of the divas they're impersonating from their looks to their signature moves. A high-energy soundtrack adds to their exhilarating performances. Every act features a No. 1 hit from your favorite diva including Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," Britney Spears' "Circus" and Madonna's "Music." Some divas perform solo while other acts also feature the talented back-up dancers.Later in the show, an impersonator portraying Liza Minnelli brings audience members to their feet with his riveting performance of "New York, New York." His convincing dance moves and facial expressions make it hard to believe he's not actually singing.Throughout the show, people sing along and dance in their seats to the popular songs. Glitzy costumes, dazzling performers and a soundtrack of chart-topping hits - Divas Starring Frank Marino has it all.

**Holy egg nog and sugar cookies! Now through December 30th, Legends in Concert will be performing their Annual Holiday Show. Get ready to enjoy holiday sets by tribute artists for George Michael, Whitney Houston, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and more.**Have a favorite Las Vegas memory? No, we’re not talking about that time you ran naked through the buffet (we haven’t been able to look at mashed potatoes the same). We were actually hoping you’d mention an iconic performer, someone like Michael Jackson or Cher. Speaking of all-time great singers, Legends in Concert has an all-star lineup of tribute artists set to rip the stage.Legends in Concert isn’t just a “tribute show,” it’s THEE tribute show. And it has all the big names. Las Vegas heavyweights like Elvis, Barry White, Frank Sinatra, Prince and Lady Gaga. Like the O.G. artists themselves, Legends takes things up a notch by adding bedazzled costumes, crazy, wild backup dancers, and an over-the-top on-stage orchestra. All of this awesomeness isn’t to take away from the fact that these performers can really sing. These are trained, talented performers and not some fools they pulled out of the local karaoke bar.So slide on into that tub of nostalgia. The water’s warm and welcoming. Those bubbles though, those aren’t us. We’re looking at you, Elvis.

Marc Savard's show takes comedy to another level of excitement and fun through his ability to hypnotize perfect strangers and get them to do hilarious and unexpected things. Instead of him being the main attraction, his volunteers become the stars of the show, and there's no telling what ridiculous things he will have them do once they are hypnotized.Before the show starts, Savard does a test of the subconscious to determine if you are in the right frame of mind to be hypnotized. The he explains a few guidelines for those thinking of volunteering, the most important being you must have a fun personality."If I can get 25 volunteers up here this is going to be one of your more memorable nights in Vegas," says Savard before people start making their way to one of the chairs set up on stage. Once the volunteers are in place, Savard guides them through several relaxation techniques until they are all slumped over in their chairs with their eyes closed.Savard tells his volunteers that they will awake on his command and think that they are musicians who will play with "pride and pizzazz" in a world famous orchestra. Soon they have their eyes open and they are playing their instruments with absolute conviction.He uses this not only to make the audience laugh but also as a way of determining which of his volunteers are actually hypnotized and ready for the rest of the show. Savard makes a final selection of eight volunteers and conducts another relaxation technique where they get into an even deeper state of hypnosis. One of the female volunteers, on the night the show was attended, was so relaxed that she actually fell right out of her seat and into a contorted position on the floor."I just saved you $100 from going to a Cirque du Soleil show," jokes Savard over the laughter from the audience.From there, the show takes a wild turn as Savard creates a series of hilarious scenarios for his volunteers that they wholeheartedly embrace as though everything happening were real. Each premise is wilder than the next and the end result is non-stop laughs from the audience. The individual volunteers' unique reactions add to the hilarity of Savard's commands.Apart from the scenarios, Savard also assigns the volunteers things that they will do when he shakes their hand or when they hear a certain song being played. The most hilarious command that he assigns is making one of the male volunteers think that they have jock itch. Savard shakes the guy's hand and pulls away just before the volunteer is about to unbutton his pants.As the show gets going and the volunteers prove themselves to be ready and willing to do anything, Savard "steps it up a notch" by describing even more outrageous scenarios that involve everything from suggestively shaped lollipops to blow-up dolls. This is one wild and crazy night of hilarious entertainment that you will not want to miss.-- By Caroline Fontein

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

I was impressed!
PostedMay 15, 2013
I was not expecting much - just a show booked for a free evening in Vegas, but I was VERY impressed by the talent of T Fator! The show was very funny - and it was a nice surprise to hear him sing songs that he had written as well.

It all depends on the performers of the week!
PostedMay 15, 2013
Before booking tickets check out the website for the hotel and comedy club and SEE who is performing the week you are visiting. The cost is inexpensive - always a plus in Vegas.

 Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys
The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito, who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is an experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein

 Evil Dead: The Musical, Las Vegas
Evil Dead: The Musical, Las Vegas
No sound rivals the sweet melody of zombie slaying. It’s quite musical, actually. So much in fact, that we’d actually pay to hear it in concert. Thankfully, Evil Dead: The Musical is here to fill that void in our heart. So pull up a chair, gas up your chainsaw and get ready to witness art of the highest esteem.Count us among the people who would’ve never guessed that “The Evil Dead” would be turned into a musical. But this is Vegas, and you know what, we’ve seen weirder things happen. Taking elements from cult classic films “Evil Dead 1,” “Evil Dead 2” and “Army of Darkness,” Evil Dead: The Musical is equal parts deranged hilarity and singing ability to die for. If you’re feeling brave, take a seat in the “splatter zone.” We can’t tell you what you’ll get splattered with, but we can say that it rhymes with “flood.”Wonder if they sell audiotapes in the gift shop? A massacre show tune sounds like the perfect way to chill before bedtime.

A gigantic baby? A gigantic, inflatable snail? OK, we slurped down our drinks before they could be spiked so, what gives with the hallucinations? Well, the catch is that there is no catch – you’re just at a Cirque du Soleil show and a damn good one at that. Like fine art, the storyline of Mystère at Treasure Island is left up to individual interpretation. But one thing about this production is for sure: this show, which also happens to be the first Cirque du Soleil production in Vegas, is so entertaining you’ll want to stay for an encore after the final bow.Oh, and speaking of the performers, we always wonder whether or not these crazy-talented people are even human. They’re like the ultimate example of “don’t try this at home.” They fly, they muscle up poles like tree frogs and make us feel pretty damn bad about not being able to touch our toes. They’re friggin’ amazing, and they have no fear and apparently no bones in their super-bendy bodies.Performing stunts like quadruple flips off see-saws and other sick tricks we average folk couldn’t even dream up if we tried, this show is so unreal you just kinda have to let it happen. Emphasizing family-friendly, awe-inspiring athleticism and imaginative imagery, Mystère embraces all the signature Cirque du Soleil elements that have made the production one of the OG companies on the Las Vegas Strip.

Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and maybe even learn some new dance moves at Human Nature Jukebox. Mixing pop classics with Doo-Wop, Motown, soul standards and more, Human Nature, Australia’s top selling pop vocal group and Las Vegas headliners, is bringing audiences a show experience unlike any other on the Strip. Effortlessly blending retro cool with contemporary sounds, Jukebox takes audiences on an unforgettable journey through various genres.Starting with the classics of the Doo-Wop era, Human Nature pays tribute to the legends of Motown and soul and carries through to today’s breakout sensations. With song selections ranging from "Under the Boardwalk" to "Uptown Funk," the four men of Human Nature will have everyone dancing in their seats and tapping their toes along to the beat.Human Nature's smooth vocals and flawless harmonies have skyrocketed their popularity and success on the Las Vegas Strip for nearly a decade. Together the four entertainers; Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney are undeniably one of the world’s greatest pop-vocal groups, having entertained millions worldwide and releasing 23 best-selling albums in their 25-year career. Their latest multi-platinum album, "Jukebox" is the influence for the brand new show at the Venetian Las Vegas. Human Nature were voted "Best Singers" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and have appeared on Oprah, "Dancing with the Stars," "The Chew" and headlined their own PBS Special "Human Nature Sings Motown."Although audiences in Vegas may not be that familiar with Human Nature, they are one of the most popular acts from Australia. The group formed in 1989 as a Doo-Wop band in Sydney. In 1994 they signed with Sony Music and released their debut album, "Telling Everybody" in 1995. The album was an instant hit, selling four times platinum and became the most successful debut album ever released in Australia. Human Nature released their fourth consecutive No. 1 album, "A Symphony of Hits," in 2008.As a result of their outstanding showmanship, Human Nature has performed as the opening act for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. In 2000, they had the honor of performing the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics. During their Vegas show, the members of Human Nature get personal with their audiences and between songs greet audience members and tell stories. They explain since they were young they always aspired to be as great like The Temptations and The Miracles. Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience with others.Audiences watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several moments when Human Nature performs without the band; these songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and the ability to perform in perfect harmony. Human Nature keeps everyone on their feet and dancing to tunes while they create an entertainment experience with feel-good messages that are found in  timeless songs.Don't miss your chance to catch Human Nature perform at the Venetian.

This is one loud show! And it's not the music we're talking about. The enthusiastic screams and shouts coming from behind the closed doors of the Thunder From Down Under Showroom are a muted version of what actually takes place inside the theater. Thunder from Down Under encourages its audience members to be as vocal as they want. So ladies, let loose. This show is perfect for bachelorette parties, divorce parties and the ultimate girls' night out.

Terry Fator may just be the greatest illusionist on the Las Vegas Strip, but you'll never see him perform any magic tricks. He amazes audiences by singing like famous entertainers from Elvis to Cher without moving his lips, and that's not all. Along with being a singer and a celebrity impressionist, Fator is a puppeteer. His face may not move much during his show, but his hands are always in action, bringing to life his cast of lovable puppet co-stars.The puppets each have their own comical personalities and music style, which makes Fator's show feel like both a concert and a stand-up comedy routine. There's Winston, the impersonating turtle; Walter T. Airdale; Maynard Thompkins, the World's Greatest Elvis Impersonator; Emma Taylor, the little girl with the big voice; Duggie Scott Walker, the annoying neighbor; Julius, the soul singer; Monty Carlo, the lounge singer; Hyphen, the delusional British rocker; Vikki, the cougar; Barry Fabulous, a flamboyant hip-hop diva; and Wrex, the safety expert. When the puppets aren't singing, they're sharing their comedic wit with Fator and the audience.All the while, if you really pay attention, you get the chance to hear something remarkable. Fator's vocal range extends from Etta James' "At Last," to Garth Brooks' "Friends In Low Places." The appreciation for his talent runs even deeper when he performs both parts of two duets. He does Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," and "What A Wonderful World," as Kermit the Frog (with Winston) and Louis Armstrong.Combine that range of musical samplings and add in that Fator never opens his mouth more than half an inch during the songs unless he's taking a breath or, on the rare occasion, singing a song as himself.To call Terry Fator a master of puppets would be an under appreciation for his show and talents. But to call him the best singer on the Strip, who doesn't open his mouth more than half an inch, while using puppets and providing endless comedy might be more accurate. Unfortunately, that's really hard to fit on a billboard.A multitalented performer, Fator got his big break when he won NBC's "America's Got Talent" in 2007. Fator won $1 million and a gig to perform on the Strip. Since 2008 hundreds of thousands of tourists have seen Fator's show. Aside from Vegas, Fator has been featured on "The Today Show," "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "The Late Show with David Letterman."-- Staff Report

 Jersey Boys
Jersey Boys
The music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons is ubiquitous. Whether or not you realize it, you've heard their songs on the radio, in TV commercials, movies or covered by a contemporary artist. Their repertoire of hits like, "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man" and "Big Girls Don't Cry" is ingrained in American pop culture. The story behind those songs and the group is just as endearing.Jersey Boys at Paris Las Vegas takes audiences into the lives of Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, Nick Massi and Bob Gaudio and their rise to stardom as The Four Seasons. The show, written by Marshal Brickman and Rick Elice, begins with four blue-collar kids working their way from the streets of Newark, N.J., to achieving their dreams of being in a famous music group. Their captivating journey to stardom is told through the cast and the band's hit songs like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Rag Doll," "Oh, What a Night" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You."Each of the Four Seasons takes a turn telling their side of the story. It becomes clear that while their voices fit together in perfect harmony, their distinct personalities and lives were a sharp contrast to their symphonic sound."We put Jersey on the map," says DeVito, who is the first storyteller for the evening. "Ask four guys how it happened and you get four different versions but they all start here."As he narrates, the other characters play out the live version of his recollection of how the band came together. He floats in and out of his role as both a narrator and an active part of the scenes.After DeVito introduces the audience to his band and his life in Jersey he describes hearing Valli's stunning falsetto and taking him under his wing as the new singer for his band. DeVito is the guiding force for the band and recommends that they need one more guy to complete their sound.  His friend, Joe Pesci, initiates a meeting between Bob Gaudio and the rest of the band.Already a one-hit wonder at the age of 17 with his song, "(Who Wears) Short Shorts," Gaudio becomes the final piece of the puzzle. Next they meet up with Bob Crewe, a producer who helps set the boys up with a gig singing back-up for various artists.Gaudio takes over as the storyteller and explains how he contrived the band's first No. 1 song, "Sherry." This is also the first Four Seasons' song in the show, and the anxious audience explodes with applause at their electrifying performance. The classic songs and impassioned actors transport the audience back to a time when they first fell in love with the Four Seasons.The show progresses with seamless transitions between acts that flow together more like a movie than a theatrical production. Props and set pieces move on and off the stage in seconds without interrupting the developing story line. Despite what happened behind the scenes, Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons produced more than 70 chart-topping hits including eight No. 1 songs. They have sold more than 175 million records worldwide making them one of the best-selling music groups of all time. Watching their story unfold in a live production show is an experience for anyone in the audience.This compelling story, combined with riveting performances and endearing music, reiterates why The Four Seasons are a truly timeless act.-- By Caroline Fontein
