Hey, I've been to Vegas many times and have only gone to a couple of shows. My GF and I are going in feb and I want to take her somewhere fun.
We've gone to jabbawockeez, David copperfield and a couple of burlesques shows.

I've considered the cirque shows but want to ask which is better.
Any experiences with any shows please share. Thanks in advance.

Have only seen one show in Vegas and it was the Lion King years ago, which was life changing and amazing.  Unfortunately they no longer have it so...

Lol sorry literally no help to the thread but just came in to say Lion King was good

Penn and Teller is solid, and a good reason to go visit the Rio if you're staying on the strip (free shuttle from the Caeser's properties)

http://www.travelzoo.com/entertainment/las-vegas/  has some quality deals on all types of shows.  Not the only place for discounts, but a good spot if you don't want to try to have the show locked in before you go.

Another vote for Penn and Teller if you can get reasonable prices.

I was in the lower level on the right side, probably 12 rows back.  Great seats.  The theater isn't that big, though, and honestly anything on the lower level or balcony is fine.  It's a fun show.  A few magic tricks, some comedy mixed in, they show you how a couple tricks are done, and there is some audience involvement.  For a discounted ticket, I was very happy with the $50ish spent.

tickets 4 tonight is a good discounted ticket outlet to use on the day of the show and the catch is you have to them go to the theatre of the show and turn the t4t voucher into tickets , which the box office does.

also there is a pick 2 promo that is run between the luxor and excalibur and you get two shows basically for 40 dollars each so for a total of $160 your can see Carrot Top and Tournament of Kings, Carrot Top is recommened as he actually keeps his material fresh.

I actually enjoyed Mac King Comedy/Magic Show.  Cheap tickets ($20 I think which included a drink or two).  Nice way to spend an hour or so.  BOL!

My Penn and Teller seats were lower level towards the back,right side and could see everything pretty well without glasses(need them for sportsbook displays).Like Heinz said,the theatre is not huge..Did like bringing a couple beers in and the legroom/aisle space is nice.First Vegas show I bothered to go to and just because they were CET comped,buddy is a diamond card..Show was maybe 90 minutes or so and Teller was out in the lobby signing afterwards..
