    Penn and Teller's show rocks. But the best show I ever saw in Vegas was Sammy Davis Jr. Also, the Smothers Brothers were great, and Frank Gorshin was their opening act.I think Cirque is over-hyped. I like my circuses corny (and carny).

      "But the best show I ever saw in Vegas was Sammy Davis Jr. Also, the Smothers Brothers were great, and Frank Gorshin was their opening act.""They built the casinos smaller then""They seemed plenty big…"If my father-in-law were still with us, he'd have a tear in his eye."I like my circuses corny "We go to the Ringling Brothers show every year, but we also try and hit the local Shrine Circus. THAT's some fun – there's never any fear at Ringling Bros. that someone might rack it on the flimsy trapese…Plus, the PETA crowd comes out to protest to the Shrine Circus, so that's always good for some pre-show entertainment.

    You should see Love. I thought Mystere was way overhyped, and I love Love. The sound system alone is worth it.

    Haven't been to a Cirque show in years but loved the earlier ones. Kim and I went to see them as often as we could. She got pulled onstage to be a volunteer and, of course, could have taken over the whole act. Another time I got picked out to go onstage and did very well and had a lot of fun.I respect you're right not to like it but my experience was different.

    • Michael Davis says:

      John,I've heard that the earlier shows were really great. Maybe what happened is a case of some cast member saying; "Wow, we are so cool and people love us so much that that we can do anything! How's this, put your face in my ass S L O W L Y…!"I'm glad you enjoyed what you saw my friend but I have been scared for life.

    I'm with you Michael except there is no way I'm enough of a team player to let myself get dragged to one of these overwrought pretentious pieces of foo-foo. Wish you were here in Chicago with us. We all miss you and there's no Frenchified phoniness to put up with here. Next time we see you have Adriane tell you about her delight in seeing a pub full of Londoners stop everything to watch Portugal beat France in soccer and her encounter on the plane home with a gaggle of extremely rude French women.

  7. Delmo Walters Jr. says:

    I would've gone back to my hotel room than attend some show I had no interest in. Screw that team player stuff.

  8. Elayne Riggs says:

    Oh Michael, next time we both find ourselves in Vegas I would go to LOVE with you any time. (My mom lives in Vegas in the winters so it's not out of the realm of possibility…) I generally share your feelings for These Wacky Acrobatic Canadians, but I sooooo want to see LOVE. And if they mess with our beloved Beatles I will join with you in wreaking havoc upon them with as many left-handed bass guitars as we can possibly round up.

    I agree whole-fartedly with the pronouncement that this show sucks balls. I went to see this show in Dec 2003. Needless to say, the show was ultralame and afterwards a big tiff was had with my girlfriend at the time about how she should have listened to me and saw David Copperfield instead of insisting on spending hundreds to see this crapstravaganza. The big mystery about mystere is why it is still running when it should have obviously been shut down years ago. Definitely a case of emperor wears no clothes.

    Wow man, you are a perfect imbecile. Cirque Du Soleil is a French-Canadian enterprise, what do the French have to do with anything? If you're going to make vitriolic generalizations about any given culture (always a sign of a fragile intellect) at least make sure you've done some research.I agree, Vegas is a toilet. It sucks. But not as much as you, dude.
