“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 show in Edinburgh in 2015. Vegas Nocturne was a chaotic cabaret directed by American clowning legend John Gilkey and we were honoured to be named Strangest Show!
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’18?
In April this year we celebrated the 8th anniversary of our show Absinthe at Caesars Palace and the first anniversary of our latest Las Vegas show, Opium. We are excited to be creating and premiering our third show bound for the Las Vegas strip right here in Edinburgh.
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 but we can recommend the more family-friendly and brilliant Australian circus company Circa and their show Humans. Cirque Berserk, La Galerie and The Storm are other companies on our list to see.
