Zombie Burlesque Brings A Bewitching End To Oktoerfest

This Friday, join undead cast members from Zombie Burlesque as they tap the final ceremonial keg on Halloween night and bring a bewitching end to Oktoberfest.

Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas offers guests endless Bavarian fun, food and, of course, Oktoberfestbier imported from Munich, Germany. The full-bodied lager is brewed to perfection and is the ultimate centerpiece for the exciting festivities that compare to the real Oktoberfest revelry held in Munich, Germany. Patrons can test their strength during the stein holding competitions and Jägermeister spankings, or watch the nightly almond and pecan glazing process, adding the finishing touch to an authentic experience.

Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is the first German/Bavarian beer hall and restaurant in Las Vegas. This faithful reproduction of the world’s most famous beer hall, the original, centuries-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany, is an authentic and entertaining blend of tradition and fun. Guests can savor schnitzels, sausages, pretzels and the finest Hofbräu beer.

Visit The Notorious Club Z & Enjoy The Zombie Burlesque Show!



Written By Claudia Nevarez & Carole McCabe-Joy

The war between Zombies and humans is over!! Yes there are brains, brains, brains and the Zombie Burlesque takes place at the decadent notorious Club Z. Beautiful Zombie women take off their clothes while they tease and try to eat you across the stage. Zombie burlesque is that and much much more, not only do these women tease you, while they are Zombies they are surprisingly limber as  they sing, dance and strut their stuff. Located in the jewel box of a theater this newest stage is delightfully small and intimate! NO BAD SEAT in the house!

The characters of this show are so entertaining and we enjoyed the way the humor coexists with the feel of what burlesque is. It's dirty and raunchy and its an entirely different sexy show this wacky Zombie Burlesque! If you can take every cheesy character, Miss Doris Dank, and put a beautiful half naked girl in its place then that would be zombie burlesque. The host Zenoch entertained us with funny little skits and monologues about the (willing or unwilling?) audience participant being a human “corpse porker.” All in good fun!

As if beautiful women taking their clothes off wasn't enough we had the delight to see Miss Marilyn Monrott perform her aerial display and TURF the contortionist who is able to bend his body in shapes and angles that made some audience members look away with gruesome squirmish disgust. Plus for once on-stage there was...wait for it...an act that the blog has not seen on-stage! The Quiddlers are entertaining and shockingly funny (see the show and you will see the shock!)

Then you have the funny talent of Tiny Bubbles with her singing drawing and for the ladies the delightfully bare-chested, chiseled abs Zombies Vs. Aliens! Then it is intermission time, which in true raunchy style explains how jello shots are “made.” The audience gets to partake of these little lime jello offsprings.

All in all zombie burlesque is a true Vegas experience and is one of the most entertaining, funny and witty burlesque shows right now. And yes we would watch the show again and again. With all the dancing, the lighting, the costumes and the added bonus of a live band a great evening. Yes ladies and gentlemen this is one show you can not miss.

It’s cheesy. It’s entertaining and you should definitely go watch The Zombie Burlesque Show!

General tickets are $64.99 and VIP seating tix are $84.99.

Stars of the JERSEY BOYS

Performers from the Las Vegas Strip and beyond came together on Sunday, Oct. 19 at The Sands Showroom at The Venetian Las Vegas for one special mission – to raise awareness and funds for the disorder known as Neurofibromatosis (NF) for the Fourth Annual NF Hope Concert. Spearheaded by JERSEY BOYS star, Jeff Leibow, the afternoon affair included performances by noteworthy entertainers, including Veronic, Clint Holmes, American Idol finalist Jasmine Trias, Ben Stone, Kristen Hertzenberg, stars of Jersey Boys, Cast of Million Dollar Quartet and the Cast of Rock of Ages.

Inspired by Leibow’s daughter, Emma, who was diagnosed with NF in 2010 at the age of nine months, the NF Hope Concert was conceived by Leibow and his wife, Melody. Since its inception in 2011, the NF Hope Concert has raised nearly $200,000 for Neurofibromatosis research and advocacy.

This is the last concert before Leibow takes on his full-time role as executive producer and director of development of NF Hope Concerts. Following his final performance in JERSEY BOYS on Nov. 23, Leibow will focus on expanding the concert to other markets throughout the U.S.

Proceeds from the event benefit NF Network, an organization serving families and individuals suffering with NF. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation in the support of Las Vegas families touch by this common, yet seldom supported disorder.
