Steve's Side: There's nothing here for gays or straight women, not even camp. Some of the women are lovely to look at, true, but for this kind of money it is baffling why audience members wouldn't just go to, say, "Peepshow" for similar eye candy.
At Luxor Hotel-Casino
Tickets: Starting at $39
Show times: 10:30 p.m. nightly
Pros: Comic Sean Cooper, the specialty act who does a white-faced Michael Jackson, had Jamie in stitches. And Jamie was genuinely impressed by Sonya, an aerialist who does some death-defying stunts on a silk rope. Trouble with that is we would go on to see better versions of the same stunt at "Zumanity" and even "Bite," but for someone who'd never seen it before, it was thrilling nonetheless.
Cons: This was Jamie's first topless show ever and it was so limp and cheap that it actually made him question whether he wanted to participate in this effort. The women seemed to be trying too hard to seem sexy, the sets were uninspired and the supposed star of the show, ex-Playmate Angelica Bridges, didn't show her breasts. Since we went, it ought to be noted, Bridges has left the production, but the executive producer of the show seemed genuinely upset by the departure in such a way that their show-biz judgment must be questioned. Bridges' singing was meager and her inability to form a rapport with the audience was embarrassing. This is what they held up as quality? The choreography, by the way, is the work of one-time tabloid presence Cris Judd, who momentarily was wed to Jennifer Lopez.
Steve's Side: Sorry, Fantasy, but the so-bad-its-good prize belongs to Crazy Girls. This is so bad it's bad. Nothing to see here, especially not with all the better choices around.
Jamie's Bottom Line: "You know, for a topless show, these aren't really all that big."
