When Carrot Top comes out on stage there's no telling what crazy contraption he's going to pull out next, but classifying him as just a prop comic is an understatement. His wacky inventions are merely an extension of his outrageous and hilariously funny personality. While some jokes are based on items that he pulls from his prop trunks, others rely on his talent as a stand-up comedian and comical commentary on everything from tourists to NASCAR, celebrities and current events.He begins with talking about how when people come to Vegas they suddenly have urge to gamble on everything in sight."One time I lost $20 on a Coke machine," jokes Carrot Top.Then he introduces a few of his "inventions." "Here's an Amish hair dryer," says Carrot Top as he pulls out a long bendable tube that he has to blow out of and aim at his hair. Next he demonstrates a redneck baby carrier, which is actually a box of beer that has holes cut out of it to fit a baby's head and limbs.The red-haired comedian barely stops to take a breath as he transitions between frantically searching for a new prop and telling jokes. Before you know it the topic has changed from walking to the Excalibur to his last visit to the porn convention in Las Vegas."It takes an extra hour to walk around because your feet get stuck to the floor," jokes Carrot Top while people in the audience can't help but keel over laughing.Next he transitions to talking about athletes and pulls out a football helmet with a phallic attachment to demonstrate what one of his least favorite players should wear.His show is just as wild and crazy as his big hair and brightly colored tie-dyed T-shirt that he wears during his performance. What seems like a loud fashion statement for most people is mild in comparison to the comedian's uninhibited personality.Mid-way through the show, a bucket is lowered from the ceiling with what the comedian claims to be his "medicine." He pulls it out and reveals that his medicine is actually Crown Royal. Carrot Top pours a shot for himself and then a few more that he hands to people in the front rows while AC/DC's "Have a Drink on Me" plays in the background.You just never know what this crazy comedian is going to say or do next. At times it looks like not even he knows what's going to come out of his mouth, but he admits later on in the show that "A lot of this isn't for you. I'm just entertaining myself."However, the continuing laughter and buzz from audience members as they exit the theater and re-tell some of his jokes proves that he is doing much more than just that.-- By Caroline Fontein

Loved it

Carrot Top was so worth the ticket price! We laughed and really enjoyed the whole show. We purchased two tickets and the one seat couldn't see the pre-show video screen, but the show itself was fine.

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.

We were very happy - got to the theatre early - our original tickets were three rows from top of venue. But they filled in unsold lower seats and so we got lucky and were seated down on the lower level. Honestly, I think every seat was terrific in there. What a great show!
I booked the show with buffet package and wished that I had looked in to the buffet more. It was only ok - nothing I'd do again.

what is catagory 1 seating

It is the lower level seating. They do involve that section a bit in the show - but I am not sure if the premium $ is worth it since the best parts of the show are when the whole 'stage' area (even above your head) is being used...and could possibly be seen even better from the higher seats.
