“To create and rehearse the show we have brought our entire producing team from New York and Las Vegas to Edinburgh for the month of July as well as the fourteen incredible performers who come from Australia, USA, Ukraine, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, Sweden, Wales, Ireland and Iceland.”
WHO: Andrew Dunn: Creative Director
WHAT: “The wildest watering hole in town. Madam Boozy Skunkton has been collecting the prettiest, sexiest, dumbest, drunkest troupe of entertainers and acrobats on earth, and is determined to create the greatest saloon show the world has ever known. Moulin Rouge meets Blazing Saddles, and America’s Got Talent meets Westworld. From the creators of the hit Las Vegas show Absinthe. Featuring some of the best names in variety and physical comedy, this world premiere is a must-see before it heads to its permanent home on the Las Vegas Strip. Directed by Cal McCrystal (One Man, Two Guvnors).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Spiegelworld presented a small ridiculous show in Edinburgh in 2015 where we just had fun trying out new ideas. Vegas Nocturne was an out of control cabaret directed by American clowning legend John Gilkey and we were honoured to be named Strangest Show! We see Edinburgh as a perfect stage to develop and premiere new work.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
Celine Dion took a break from her gruelling Las Vegas concert schedule, came to see our show Absinthe at Caesars Palace and declared it was her favourite disaster since Titanic.
Tell us about your show.
Spiegelworld has been talking to UK’s leading comedy director Cal McCrystal for years about creating a show together. We have long admired his joyful, madcap, subversive style of physical comedy which is a perfect complement to our incredibly skilled and sexy young circus acrobats. Finally we have the opportunity to make the dream a reality with a show which takes the audience to the Wild West as it never was . To create and rehearse the show we have brought our entire producing team from New York and Las Vegas to Edinburgh for the month of July as well as the fourteen incredible performers who come from Australia, USA, Ukraine, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, Sweden, Wales, Ireland and Iceland. After its world premiere in Edinburgh the show will be immediately transferred to its permanent home at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
Our show is definitely adults-only and with our incredibly good looking and sexy acrobats, most of our audience will be shamed into re-joining a gym immediately after seeing our show. But we can also recommend the more family-friendly and brilliant Australian circus company Circa and their show Humans. We are really excited to be surrounded by so many exceptional circus companies and Cirque Berserk, La Galerie and The Storm are just some of the many shows on our list to see.
