Jeff Civillico can ride a unicycle and juggle at the same time, but that's not all that makes him entertaining. It's his enthusiastic interaction with the crowd and quirky mannerisms that whip audiences into a comedic frenzy at his afternoon show at The Quad. His innovative method of entertainment has been branded "comedy in action.""You know you're a big deal in Vegas when you do your own introduction," says Civillico at the start of the show.Audience interaction is a big part of Civillico's act. He starts the show by asking for an item from the crowd. He gets a man in the audience to hand him his baseball cap. Then Civillico balances it on his head. From there, he moves on to balancing a chair that someone hands him from the audience. Next it's a 10-foot ladder that he gets from back stage and balances on his chin. By this time you're thinking, "This guy must be crazy."With odd signature moves like his high side kick followed by an exaggerated wedgie pull, Civillico is the definition of zany, and that's what makes him entertaining. If you're that taken by Civillico's on-stage idiosyncrasies, they're emblazoned on a T-shirt that you can purchase after the show.Civillico rapidly transitions from showing off his aptitude at juggling pins and spinning plates on his fingers to getting people from the audience on stage to assist him with his next act. For one of these instances he gets "two big strong beasts of men" to help him get on his unicycle. The show becomes watching the two men try to interpret Civillico's instructions while he uses them as ladders to hoist himself onto the towering unicycle.Later in the show he gets a 7-year-old -girl on stage to help him with a spinning plate balancing act. He also does a routine where he teaches someone in the audience how to juggle. For this routine he walks into the crowd and gets someone seated in the back of the theater to come on stage. There's no doubting the volunteer's less-than-enthusiastic demeanor, but Civillico turns his reluctance into comedic fodder.Spewing off-the-cuff one-liners is another one of Civillico's fortes along with his untamed enthusiasm. While his personality is plenty entertaining, there's no doubting his talent as a juggler. He puts the spotlight on his skills later on in the show when he juggles glow-in-the-dark laser balls and pins that change color as he throws them in the air. The glowing pins against the blacked out stage create an optical illusion, making it seem as though he has at least one more set of hands assisting him. Of course, it's only Civillico on stage.A champion juggler, Civillico has spent most of his life performing. When he was only 7 years old he saw a street juggler in Harvard Square and was inspired to be an entertainer. He acted, sang and danced throughout elementary school. In high school he rediscovered juggling, and used it as a tool to develop his unique blend of comedy and entertainment.When he was 15, Civillico earned a gold medal in the juniors division of the 1998 International Jugglers' Association. After graduating from Georgetown University in 2005 he went on to pursue his career as an entertainer. Civillico specializes in providing audiences with a clean and professional comedy show that appeals to audiences of all ages.He has provided stage entertainment and MC work for corporate events nationwide. Some of his past clients include Wachovia, OSHA, Anheuser-Busch, Toyota, Honda, Harley-Davidson and The American Heart Association. He has also worked as a headlining entertainer for Disney Cruise Line and The Atlantis Resort in Nassau.A multifaceted entertainer, Civillico's comedy show is sure to enliven anyone's afternoon. Bringing laughter and moments of awe to audiences is all in a day's work for Civillico. His energy is boundless just like his ability to entertain.-- By Caroline Fontein

Great Family Show!
PostedApril 23, 2014
I went thinking it would be more a juggling show with a little comedy added but really it was the other way around.
Very clean comedy! Good for everyone in the family, in our audience there were toddlers to grandma's and everyone laughed and "peed just a little." (a Jeff joke)
We would go see it again!
GREAT SHOW for the price!
A MUST SEE!

High-energy drumming and excitement are in store for audiences at Recycled Percussion. Part rock concert and part interactive experience, this show is a riotous blend of music and comedy. Before any of the performers hit the stage, the showroom is filled with loud rock 'n' roll music and the sound of audience members banging on the instruments given to them before entering the theater.The curtain rises and the four members of Recycled Percussion make their grand entrance, lowered over the stage while sitting on a vertical platform with their backs parallel to the floor and playing the drums. Except they aren't drums, instead Recycled Percussion has made a name for themselves by creating music out of pieces of recycled trash, tin, buckets, power tools and other items. The audience also gets to experience how the group's raucous junk rock is created.Upon entering the showroom everyone is given a set of drumsticks and other item that they'll use during the show. A video introduction explains everything once the show starts. Each item has a colored dot on it that represents your team leader and when you are supposed to bang your instrument. As the band performs, rock videos of songs are played on a huge screen hanging over the stage. When you see your colored dot, you hit your instrument. Anyone familiar with Rock Band or Guitar Hero will have no problem playing along, but even if you don't know those games the basic drum beats are easy to follow.Recycled Percussion consists of drummers Justin Spencer and Ryan Vezina, guitarist Matt Bowman and DJ Jason Davies. The group formed in 1994 in New Hampshire for their high school talent show. The small-town band built a steady following with their fast-paced drumming, gravity-defying athleticism and humorous stage personalities. They don't just sit there and drum. These musicians are all showmen who know how to work a crowd.The group was introduced to households across the country as contestants on the fourth season of the NBC hit show "America's Got Talent." Recycled Percussion placed 3rd and was the first non-singing act in the show's history to place in the top three. After the show the group went on to be featured on the cover of "USA Today" and has performed as special guests on various television shows including the "Today Show," "Carson Daily," "Talk Soup" and before a live international audience of more than 80,000 people at "China's Got Talent." After making their music heard around the world it's no surprise that the group landed a gig in Vegas. After performing for two years at various locations on the Las Vegas Strip, the group has become the resident show at The Quad Hotel & Casino."The central location on The Strip is perfect for our all-ages show," said band leader Justin Spencer. "We've added in a lot of new creative elements to expand our appeal and allow us to connect with our audiences on a deeper and even more interactive level. We're really excited."Enhanced with innovative lighting and a ground-shaking sound system, Recycled Percussion perform on an elevated platform and on a number of different props like ladders and even an old van. One of the acts does not use any drums. Instead performers create music to an electrified version of the Beatles song "Eleanor Rigby" by putting a metal grinder to one of four large, round metal bins hung from a contraption lowered over the stage. Sparks fly in the air as the performers grind away in rhythm to the well-known song.Periodically, pantomimed skits flesh out the show with humor and give the audience's ears a break from the banging. Audience participation reaches its peak when select guests join the show to act like trained monkeys and compete in a dance-off. Perhaps the most fun diversion is "Totally Random Cookie Time," complete with an original song and actual cookies.Toward the end of the show the group leads everyone through a musical montage of songs where the audience is invited to play along when they see their colored dot on the screen. The theater explodes in a harmonious cacophony of banging from people in the audience and riveting beats from Recycled Percussion as they rock out on stage. The finale brings Recycled Percussion's trademark ladder act to the stage. The musicians drum of the rungs as they climb giant ladders and scrape their sticks as they slide back down, creating a sound like a giant washboard.Start to finish, Recycled Percussion is a raucous good time for the all-ages audience..

Great Show For The Family
PostedApril 23, 2014
At first I was afraid it was going to be a noise fest as they give you pots to bang on when you walk in the door but the music was awesome, the energy was out of this world and the showmanship was fantastic.
I would see this show again! I had my whole family, kids ranging from 10-25 and they loved every minute of it!

Surprises await you at every turn as you transcend to another realm of the imagination at O by Cirque du Soleil.First, you laugh at a silly spectacle of two clowns attempting to stay dry under an umbrella filled with holes as they weave their way through the audience before the show begins. Then you are immersed in the smell of spices as a man swings an incense container while several other peculiar looking characters scatter down the aisles through the seats toward the stage. Mystery, intrigue and anticipation hang in the air for the journey to begin.Finally, the curtain opens revealing a whimsical scene where synchronized swimmers splash in perfect precision as a trapeze duo descends from the ceiling to their place above the watery world below."O," a play on the French word for water, is a stunning aquatic masterpiece that explores a world of fantasy beyond your wildest imagination conveyed through the amazing performances of world class acrobats, synchronized swimmers, divers and an array of other characters in, on and around a 1.5-million gallon pool.This show, made up of 85 performers and 150 stage hands, contains greatly imaginative, yet seemingly impossible images and can be thought of as a living representation of a Salvador Dali or Vladimir Kush painting. The complex combination of infinitely flowing movement from the performers at all times during the show creates an ever-evolving work of art accented by lighting special effects and an innovative soundtrack performed by an ensemble of live musicians and singers.A barge gracefully floats into center stage where a team of acrobats create innovative shapes and poses with their bodies. They are no longer human but pieces of a puzzle that can fit together to create an infinite number of mystifying and beautiful images.Apart from the performers, the stage is equally amazing in its transformation from a 25-foot pool of water into a flat surface in a matter of seconds. Elements of fire, water and air are also explored as the set changes from an underwater spectacle to dry land where a tribal dancer whirls two flaming batons.As soon as one act is done taking your breath away, you are in awe at another incredible character defying your senses.Three swings become the launching pad for divers as they gracefully skyrocket into the air before astounding the audience as they flip, spin and plummet to the water below.A ladder appears where world class high divers make their ascent to a 60-foot high platform. Instead of trying to make it into a wooden barrel like the traditional circus act, three divers jump all at the same time, each landing in a small sectioned area of the pool. It is a death defying stunt that has everyone holding their breath until they re- emerge from the pool's surface.Contortionists amaze and beguile the audience in their ability to morph their bodies into unthinkable positions while gracefully floating on the water.Soldiers on flying carousel horses, dancing sirens, a man sitting down to read his newspaper while engulfed in flames, and a bevy of other exquisite characters create a unique and enchanting experience at "O." Through the different scenes you will find yourself lost in a dream yet found in a world of fantasy and fun.-- By Caroline Fontein

AWESOME SHOW!!!
PostedApril 23, 2014
I have seen other Cirque's and this is my new favorite. The diving was phenomenal! We sat in the 2nd row in the center and we could see everything, we even got wet a couple of times. Like any Cirque there are things going on at every corner and it is hard to see it all but I would recommend this show 100%

RUSHED
PostedApril 23, 2014
We were picked up by another bus at our hotel, taken to the Excalibur to catch our tour bus. Waited for other tourists to take their time to arrive 30 minutes late at the Excalibur THEN waited another 20 minutes at the Luxor for the tour guide to find 2 more tourists.
When we finally got to the Hoover Dam we were given 1 hr and 15 min to tour it. It took 10 minutes to walk to where the tour started, we waited in line for 20 minutes, the tour took 35 minutes, and we had 10 minutes to find lunch before we had to rush 3 of the tourists on our to the airport so they could fly over the Grand Canyon.
I truly feel that the "flyers" should be on a different bus and the rest of us should not be forced to rush.
We then dumped of the "flyers" and got to tour for the Ethel M for a whole 30 minutes.
This tour was the one thing my husband was truly looking forward to and it was the worst experience.
