Crazy Girls – Old School Vegas Meets Modern Sin City

Crazy Girls is the iconic topless revue at the Riviera Hotel and Casino. When you go, get ready to see gorgeous showgirls stripping down to their g-strings in provocative numbers choreographed to a soundtrack of classic favorites and modern hits.

The great thing about the Crazy Girls performers is their ability to portray the showgirl fantasy while performing in an intimate setting that leaves nothing to the imagination. The small theater offers unobstructed views from all seats. Semicircular VIP booths put guests front and center for all the action.

Crazy Girls celebrated its 25th Anniversary at the Riviera making it the second longest running show in Vegas next to “Jubilee” at Bally’s. The show features a cast of incredibly fit and talented performers who tease the audience with solo and group numbers.

The Crazy Girls bronze sculpture in front of the Riviera is almost as famous as the dancers and the show itself. Unveiled in 1997, this life-size piece depicts seven g-string wearing performers in their famous butt lineup pose underneath the words, “No ifs, ands or…” Arkansas artist Michael Conine, based the life casting on a promotional photo used by the Riviera on billboards, taxi cabs and print advertising all around Las Vegas. Shidoni Foundry, near Santa Fe, NM, cast the forms in bronze. The piece was restored for its Hollywood close up in Domino, a 2005 action film starring Keira Knightley.

According to Las Vegas legend, good luck awaits all who rub those shapely behinds. The shiny spots left on the statue by years of such attention is a testament to how many people are at least willing to give it a try. Of course, the statue is also now a favorite prop for raunchy and over-the-top selfies, proving once again that people really will do anything if they are drunk enough and far enough away from home.

The show has evolved over the years but the modern day version has carried over some of the elements that are distinctly Crazy Girls. The dancers still wear their iconic matching wigs for select numbers and the soundtrack is a mix of contemporary hits and classic tunes that caters to a variety of musical tastes. One change is the addition of a live singer to replace the sound track for some of the acts traditionally lip-synched by the dancers.

The sultry performances are just as appealing to women as they are to men. The show draws a fair amount of couples who are searching for some naughty but safe adult entertainment. Crazy Girls are all about making fantasies come true, regardless of gender. Provocative pole dances, an S&M routine choreographed to “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails and a racy girl-on-girl scene are just some of the highlights of the 75-minute show.

If you want to make an evening of it, you have multiple dining options at the Riviera. R Steak & Seafood Restaurant offers a fine dining experience with a wide selection of seafood and steak dishes. Wicked Vicky Tavern is a more casual place to dine with late night dining available until midnight most days and until 2 am on Fridays and Saturdays. A huge craft beer menu will quench any beer lover’s thirst and the fun atmosphere offers a great way to get the evening started or keep the party going after the show. The Banana Leaf Café serves up a select menu 24/7 for those who want to enjoy some drinks or do some gambling after the show before grabbing a bite to eat.

Crazy Girls performs nightly, except for Tuesdays. Audience members arriving 10 minutes early will learn a little bit about the history of the show and its performers.
