Five stars for "O" at Bellagio. You can't go wrong with any of the Cirque shows.

Four stars for Blue Man Group at Luxor. It's loud though, a mixture of rock concert and slapstick comedy.

My girlfriend got some free tickets to Danny Ganz last time we were in vegas, and i will say they were worth every penny we spent on them. If i'd dropped $100 each on them i would have been very disappointed.
The guy is quite tallented and a really great entertainer, but most of his matterial is very dated (he did Ross Perot jokes).

I will put in another vote for Avenue Q, as long as you don't mind the potty humor.

Swing by the Rio and see The Scintas. Family of two brothers, a sister and a friend who has been with them foe 20 years. They do musical comedy, impressions of everyone from Johnny Mathis and Frank Sinatra to the Beatles and Led Zepplin. Very funny show. The sister does straight singing, she's not very good, but the brothers are hysterical. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Mac King Comedy Show at Harrah's. You can usually find free tickets if you agree to purchase 1-2 drinks. Great show for a mid afternoon diversion. My fiance loved it.

I saw George Wallace during my last Vegas visit and enjoyed the show. I also recommend the afternoon comedy/magic show of Mac King.

Thanks again, for all the suggestions. Looks like I can't go wrong with choosing the shows at the Bellagio, MGM, or Wynn. Just have to decide which one, or ones.

Many in this thread have said it but it bears repeating; Go see "O" at Bellagio. Cirque is not like anything you have ever seen, you can't compare them to other "shows" in Vegas. They are completely unique - Ka at MGM is great as well.
