Travel back to the Middle Ages and experience a celebration of Medieval proportions. This dinner and show features jousting, dancing, singing and a feast fit for a king. Guests are seated in an arena-style setting with each section representing a different “country,” with guests encouraged to cheer on the king representing their section. Knights go head to head in various competitions including a horse race, jousting, sword fighting and gladiator-style battles. Just like what real lords and ladies would have experienced back in the Middle Ages, utensils are not provided, and patrons have to eat with their hands. After a hearty dose of merriment from Merlin and the jester a drum processional files into the arena to announce the entrance of King Arthur. During this time, dinner consisting of a slow-roasted Cornish hen, lemon pepper roasted potatoes, corn on the cob, an apple square, and a fresh dinner roll is served. They also have gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan meals upon request. While the audience dines, a large round table is lowered into the center of the arena where King Arthur and the other knights also partake in the feast, raising their glasses and toasting to the joyous occasion. Dessert is served afterwards and includes a sweet pastry. After a song and dance number by the court maidens, the knights set aside their glasses and engage in some friendly competition to determine who is the champion king.

Edgy choreography, creative props and beautiful dancers combine to form one sexy show – X Burlesque topless revue at the Flamingo. The show stars the X Girls – a troupe of talented topless dancers, some of whom are classically trained.

Their show includes a limited edition signed poster, and each table gets to ask these gorgeous girls a question.

The show is filled with popular music that will appeal to every taste from rock to country and the variety of styles allows each dancer to showcase her unique talents.

Tan bodies, perfect smiles and abs that could double as washing boards, this male revue is one that you will want to see for yourself. While standing on stage wearing the signature Chippendales’ costume – a bow tie, wrist cuffs and jeans, the men fulfill just about every female fantasy, but they do a lot more than just look pretty.

Every member of the sexy cast is good looking and varied enough in appearance to suit all tastes, and for a limited time even includes special guest Vinny G from the Jersey Shore. “Tall, blonde, dark and lean rough and tough and strong and mean,” this show has it all.

Afterwards, you can continue your night of male indulgence in Flirt Lounge located next to the showroom. The performers invite everyone to join them there for some fun after the show.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame rock band Cheap Trick is coming to the STRAT to rock out Las Vegas for two legendary weekends in February and March 2022. Beginning in 1973, Cheap Trick found fame in Japan with their second album, In Color, released in 1977. Their American rise to stardom wouldn’t be until 1979 when their live album Cheap Trick in Budokan reached the U.S. Top 10 charts that included the killer song “Want You To Want Me.” The band has been consistently touring throughout the decades, performing in over 3,700 live shows and selling over 20 million albums in the process. Their newest album, In Another World, was released this past year in April, which means that their current tour features all of your classic favorites along with plenty of their new work.
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.” And don’t forget to ring in the holiday season with “A Very Terry Christmas,” the famed ventriloquist’s delightfully funny seasonal special that begins at the end of November. His adorable cast of characters are decked out in santa hats and other holiday costumes to perform your favorite Christmas songs as well as original music created by Terry Fator himself.

When it comes to the world of magic and mysticism, do you consider yourself a believer in the unknown? Well, it may surprise you that magician and master mentalist Banachek is a devoted nonbeliever, and trust us when we say that his skepticism is absolutely a gift to the world. Banachek’s current reputation as the world’s leading mentalist began when he was just 18 years old when Banachek and a friend signed up for a “scientific” study called Project Alpha. For the next four years, Banachek would use his arsenal of mentalist tricks to convince the newly founded McDonnell Laboratory for Psychical Research of Washington University. Some of these researchers were so convinced of Banachek’s “psychic abilities” that once he revealed the truth, they still refused to change their minds. Banachek has also partnered with multiple investigators to expose fraudulent psychics, mediums, and spiritualists who take advantage of the suffering and emotions of others for monetary gain. One of his most famous investigations was of the American televangelist Peter Popoff who he unmasked on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Carson in 1986. This must-see new show at The STRAT showcases the bewildering skill of Banachek, who Penn and Teller have boasted as “a magical thinker of deep, deep subtlety.”
Where there’s thunder, there’s usually rain. And so it’s no surprise that at “Australia’s Thunder from Down Under,” it’s always raining men. The internationally acclaimed 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 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. Australia’s 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.

The world fell in love with him and his magic on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” and now we’re claiming Mat Franco as our own with his headlining magic show at The LINQ. Winner of season nine, this guy has already proven that he has the mojo to wow a massive audience with his sleight of hand and out-of-this-world magic.

Throughout the ’80s the Scorpions amassed multiple Top 10 singles including “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and “No One Like You,” as well a string of successful singles such as “Send Me an Angel” and “Still Loving You.” Just when the Scorpions’ popularity seemed as if it might come to an end, the band came back with their biggest hit yet in 1990, “Winds Of Change,” a power ballad that capitalized on the fall of the Berlin Wall. The band was ranked No. 46 on VH1’s Greatest Artists of Hard Rock and their hit “Rock You Like a Hurricane” also landed as No. 18 on VH1’s list of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs.

People might immediately think Elvis when it comes to Las Vegas, but before The King, the city jived to the tune of four entertainers who won over audiences with their cool musical stylings and playful stage demeanor. During the 1960s, the Rat Pack – Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Dean Martin brought fame and recognition to the city as both an entertainment capital and gambling destination during their run inside the Copa Room at the Sands. Today, audiences can relive the revelry and timeless music of the Rat Pack era in the show The Rat Pack is Back at Tuscany Suites. “What happens in Vegas all started with the Rat Pack,” said the show’s producer Dick Feeney. “The real legend of Vegas – the cool cats, the drinking, the partying, the gambling, they epitomized it, and people still look at those days with fond memories.” Video clips of vintage Vegas play on screens hanging on both sides of the stage, reminding everyone of where the city’s reputation as a glitzy and glamorous destination started. The curtain opens and the 7-piece Lon Bronson orchestra gets the audience going with some toe-tapping music before performers portraying all the members of the Rat Pack enter the stage. They sing and dance, conveying all of the charisma and camaraderie of the real entertainers. Dean takes center stage with drink in hand and fittingly sings, “Volare.” His smooth voice and casual stage presence convey all the essence of the real performer. He pauses between songs for some playful joking with the audience. “I’m on the whiskey diet,” says Dean, “in one week I lost four days.” Everyone laughs before he gets back to singing the Italian love song “That’s Amore” where he invites the audience to join in. Sammy Davis Jr. joins him on stage to sing “That Old Black Magic” and “Candy Man.” Just like the real Rat Pack, you never know who is going to come out on stage next. Sometimes the performers interrupt one another for some good old fashioned ribbing. Later in the show, the four guys are joined by a fabulous playboy bunny. Wearing the authentic bunny outfit and she sings “Happy Birthday” to a lucky guy in the audience. Frank, Sammy, Joey and Dean reunite on stage to belt out a few more classics including “Luck Be a Lady,” “Lady is a Tramp” and “New York, New York.” These three cool cats really know how to have a good time. By the end of the show you will too.

This show has gone to the dogs — and cats. Featuring everyday pets doing extraordinary things, Gregory Popovich’s Comedy Pet Theater is the cutest show on the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll see dogs, cats, doves and other animals act out scenarios like passengers waiting to board a train, students in a classroom and patients waiting to be seen by a doctor.

However, his cuddly cast members can’t help but steal the spotlight. The show also features circus acts like juggling, gymnastics and a jump rope routine. Some of the acts are performed by Popovich, while others showcase the talents of his featured artists. One of them is his daughter Anastasie. She dances, twirls a baton and leads a group of adorable dachshunds in a routine. She directs the dogs with ease, a talent she must have inherited from her father. A fifth-generation circus performer, Russian-born Popovich developed his skills at the Moscow Circus School. His talents earned him a spot touring with the Moscow Circus. He has performed throughout Europe, Japan and America in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus and at the Circus Circus in Las Vegas.

Comedy Club’s patrons are locals who have been following the franchise since it was launched several years ago at Palace Station. After a stint in Trader Vic’s at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, it moved to downtown’s Four Queens, then to Bally’s Las Vegas and now is at The STRAT. Inside the venue you’ll find the hallmarks of a typical comedy club. A mic and wooden stool are front and center on a large stage that is flanked by two video screens. Clips of practical jokes and bloopers are broadcast to patrons before the show begins. There’s a variety of seating options (chairs, tables and booths) — and no matter where you sit, you’ll have a good view. The format at the L.A. Comedy Club is simple. The bulk of the stage time is given to the Redneck Comedy Show with James Michael. Many of the headliners like Felipe Esparza have competed on NBC’s reality laugh fest “Last Comic Standing,” while others including Willie Ferrell, Tom Rhodes, Joey Medina, Butch Bradley and Shang have Showtime, HBO or Comedy Central credits to their name. These headlining comedians are paired with a host from Las Vegas, which is another unique feature of the L.A. Comedy Club. Not only does it offer a top-notch venue for professional comics, but local talent is also nurtured and promoted. Occasionally, a surprise guest or famous friend of a headliner stops by and performs to the delight of customers as well. Be sure to get your dose of laughs during your Vegas vacation.

Hitzville The Show is a nostalgia-filled trip through the Motown hits of yesteryear. Vocalist Jin-Jin Reeves, along with backup singers and the five-piece Hitzville band, fills Planet Hollywood’s V Theater with an authentic Motown sound and experience that will have you clapping your hands and dancing in the aisles. Hitzville is a journey through the times and places that made Motown famous, opening up with The Pips’ classic “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” and going through different acts, going from one influential Motown band to the next. Expect famous songs like “My Guy,” “Natural Woman” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” along with a few rarer tracks that will make Motown fans very happy. Throughout the show, Reeves evokes the sound and character of Motown’s most famous divas, going from Diana Ross to Gladys Knight to Tina Turner (and many others) without missing a beat. This comes as no surprise, as Reeves has shared the stage with many of the performers she covers in “Hitzville.” Such energy in a tribute show is rare, but really makes “Hitzville” stand out among the rest. Reeves’ backup singers in some of the songs will catch your eye when they come out dressed in red suits when they cover The Temptations, and will continue dazzle each time they come out in colorful attire and appropriate stylings for each new act. The group incorporates appropriate choreography into their acts, mimicking the original groups in both sound and showmanship. From their matching shoes to their side stepping and sliding across the stage, there are times when you’ll truly believe you’re in an authentic Motown show in the 1960’s. This is further enhanced with Reeves’ likeness to the divas she’s covering. You’re in for a treat when she gets to the Tina Turner segment of the show. Make no mistake: you will find yourself dancing along and having a great time at Hitzville.

No, it’s not your average bachelor’s view of saying “I do.” Marriage Can Be Murder is an award-winning interactive comedy and murder mystery dinner experience where the audience members become part of the show. If you liked the movie “Clue,” then this is a dinner show that you will want to sink your teeth into. Anyone can be a suspect as actors are not readily apparent among the seemingly innocent guests. You might be seated next to another patron or maybe even the murder suspect, but only time will tell as the night unravels and more clues are revealed. Guests are seated at banquet tables. Salad and warm rolls are served first, followed by an entrée with your choice of chicken, beef or fish and cheesecake for dessert. DD, a sometimes ditzy and sometimes clued-in blonde, is your host for the evening. DD assigns some guests roles including doctor or pallbearer who are called to service each time someone is murdered. “This guy has sax appeal,” says DD as she stops by one male guest who looks like he would be a good fit for the processional band. Each guest has a game card that DD refers to as sleuth pad. The card has a space for your name and a place to write who the victim and killer are and what the motive is for each of the four murders that take place during the show. After the first murder, police Lt. Eric Post arrives. Wearing too short and fitted khaki shorts, Post makes the audience laugh before he even opens his mouth. He interrogates guests while consulting DD for some background information. “This guy’s name was Dan Druff?” asks Post. “He was flaky,” replies DD. The entire show is filled with funny one-liners like this as DD, Post and a few other wacky characters attempt to find the killer. After the main course is served, there’s a short break where people can mingle, discuss the murders and get the names of other guests and potential suspects. During this time, some people get out of their seats while others chat amongst themselves. You can be as involved or uninvolved with this show as you want and still have a good time. Making murder a laughing matter doesn’t seem possible, but husband and wife team Eric and Jayne Post, who star as the lieutenant and DD in the show, have no problem stirring up laughs with their comical banter. They created the four-dimensional theater concept more than 20 years ago. It’s the longest-running dinner show in Las Vegas with more than 10 years of success. “Guests keep coming back to see the show because they enjoy the interaction of characters on stage and in the crowd. Our audience members love that they are submerged into the action and with their reactions, each show takes on a different twist and turn,” said Post. Marriage Can Be Murder combines comedy and suspense to keep you guessing through dessert. So get out your magnifying glass and detective hat for a night of mystery and fun at the Orleans.
