LAS VEGAS, NV (Jan. 5, 2016) -- When you think of famous French imports to America, you may think of fine food, superior wines and even the Statue of Liberty. But beginning this February, Las Vegas will be delivered the ultimate French treat: Alex Goude, a wildly popular French celebrity, and his new live production show, Twisted Vegas.
Enticed by the mesmerizing pull of Las Vegas, our host tries to handle everything this city can throw his way – the good, the wacky, and the outrageous. Grab a seat and hang on as French superstar Alex Goude comically wings the audience from The Strip to the Grand Canyon and back again, stumbling into Las Vegas legends and piloting acrobatic feats. A show about the show, Twisted Vegas is an all in one, all-you-can-handle, insanely interactive Las Vegas highlight reel for everyone to enjoy.
Set within the famed walls of the International Theater at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino (the same room where Elvis gave his most legendary performances), Goude and his talented cast will usher in a new era for high-concept Las Vegas entertainment, importing (and then exporting to the stage) Las Vegas’ most impressive large-scale singing and dancing productions, world-class magicians, artistic circus shows, contortionists, dancers, singers and even a scene-stealing finale.
Fast-paced, funny, edgy, and yes, abundantly twisted, the show will include some of Las Vegas’ and France’s most fascinating performers, from hilarious hand balancing and acrobatics by The Kristef Brothers to jaw-dropping impersonations of Celine Dion and Britney Spears by Costic, to amazing aerial artistry by Katya and so much more.
Twisted Vegas catapults its writer, director, and producer Alex Goude to the American spotlight. So who is Alex Goude? Well, if you walked the streets of France, you’d quickly discover his mass appeal as one of the country’s most talented and celebrated stars. Famous TV host, producer, writer, director and actor, Goude is France’s version of America’s Neil Patrick Harris; a renaissance man beloved by all who can tackle almost any job, which in Goude’s case, includes hosting France’s Got Talent, the French versions of popular American shows such as Wipe-Out, Total Blackout, America’s Funniest Videos, and Minute 2 Win It.
“It might seem surprising since people here don’t know me yet, but I’ve been traveling back and forth between France and Las Vegas for almost my whole life,” said Goude. “I’ve been to every show and was able to see the great talent in Vegas, but when a visitor comes here they probably won’t have the opportunity to experience all the shows Vegas has to offer, so I created Twisted Vegas. This show will shake up the status quo and replace it with a new take on the city’s favorite acts, plus a lot of never-before-seen ones, and put them all in one live show.”
With a fascinating history in Las Vegas dating back to his childhood (there may even be an international espionage connection…), Goude has been quietly living in Las Vegas for three years with his husband (and now child) while keeping his shows in France and preparing for his Las Vegas debut. In addition to Twisted Vegas, he is producing and directing another future Las Vegas show while also developing a new musical in France that will be the biggest musical in French history, opening in September 2016.
Twisted Vegas is set to debut in early February with one show nightly Tuesday – Saturday at 7 p.m. Dark on Monday. Tickets are now available for purchase and start at $45 plus tax and fees. For more information, visit www.Twisted.vegas.
