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

Zarkana by Cirque du Soleil brings another incredible production to the Las Vegas Strip at Aria Resort & Casino. Featuring a 70-member cast of world class acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and high wire and trapeze artists, Zarkana amazes audiences as the story unfolds (and flips, and jumps, and spins, and.. OK, you get it) before your eyes.Set in a zany alternate universe where bizarre meets arcana (Boom! The phonic parents of Zarkana), a wildly eclectic collection of forgotten circus characters and their jaw-dropping talents explore otherworldly scenarios as their washed up extravaganza comes back to life.Tucked into the surprisingly intimate 1,800-seat Aria Theater, all audience members will feel immersed in the experience… especially when the characters burst through the theater’s imaginary fourth wall to soar above the seats. With comic interjections by the show’s two clowns and an on-stage audience of ghostly members of circuses' past who mingle with the audience throughout the production, you might just feel as if you’re a part of the show yourself…sans the über bendy and flippy parts, which we will leave to the pros (because groin injuries are not ideal).Among the show’s daring acts, audience members will hold their breath while observing the high wire act complete with a swinging pendulum ball of raging fire (you know, since performing tricks on a cable a couple dozen feet in the air isn’t dangerous enough), a flying trapeze routine, in addition to an impressive ladder balancing act. However, you will have plenty of time to dry your sweaty palms and settle your anxiety when taking in beautiful (and less life-threatening) acts of endurance and strength when taking in the aerial straps, hand balancing, sand painting, flag manipulation and juggling acts among others as well.And since every Cirque du Soleil show is performed with the musical aid of a live band, audiences will enjoy an all-encompassing musical experience with a lead singer who has seemingly range-less vocals that hit even the most daunting of notes.In addition to the production’s 12-song soundtrack, there are intricate set changes that transform the stage to complement every act. Multiple layers of LED screens create stunning visuals that transform from an old circus, to outer space, to a snake-infested jungle, to a spider’s web and others scenes that add to the show’s unique visual experience.But back to the audience involvement, we will not tell you exactly what happens, but we will let you know that those clowns we previously mentioned take a little stroll in the audience during the show and do not return to the stage alone. If you’re a female sitting in the first few rows, you just may be selected to join the two comical creatures on stage to help demonstrate their electric chair. Let's just say that sparks definitely fly.In true Cirque du Soleil fashion, “Zarkana” serves audience members a visual treat with seemingly impossible physical feats that blur the line between reality and a wild realm of imagination. So get your glasses, eye drops, tape… whatever will help you keep your eyes open and not blink because this is one production that you will want to catch every second of.

My child is 2.5 years old can he attend the show?

I dont think it is suitable for a child of that age, scarily dressed people walking around the theatre.
