Thunder Down Under


Monday night I went Las Vegas’s “Thunder Down Under” male review show, at the Excalibur Casino, with my girl Gloria.  We were really late and only saw the last couple acts.  The announcer, Marcus was super funny, and super flirty.  (he told me I was a cute lil thing) ;D  After the show, we went up and got pictures for $20.  As I exited the stage, Marcus grabbed my ass, and Donovan squeezed my boob.  ;O  I was wearing a corseted D&G dress with a high slit, and when I got my picture, I noticed my ass cleavage hanging out the bottom of my dress. oops! LOL!  THe guy @ the end collecting the $ ( I don’t remember his name & he’s not on the website ) told us that he could get us comped tickets since we missed the show and introduced us to his supervisor, Justin, who happens to be a dancer for American Storm, another male review show.  (Thanks Justin) ;D  So I decided to go again Tuesday to see the entire show.  We continued out into the casino area where all the guys sign your picture or merchandise that you purchase.

There’s a lot of mixed reviews out there on the internet.  I agree, it’s definitely not the way a woman wants to be turned on or seduced.  But ladies, that’s not what the show is about.  It’s entertainment.  It’s fun.  It’s completely what I expected!

Gloria was mad at me because she has this weird thing about being glued to the person she goes to the club with, then after you’re drunk, springs it on you that you’re designated driver.  After the show we went to XS and got drunk, and she wanted me to drive her home drunk.  I had to refuse.  So she was mad at me for supposedly “ditching her.”  So I ended up taking Juan with me.

The show opened up with Jack Sparrow.  I love Jack Sparrow.  He’s got to be the sexiest character alive.  And Donovan comes out as Jack Sparrow.  I loved it!  But my favorite part of the show happened to be the fake orgasm contest.  If I went up, I would have guaranteed won that contest!   Haha!  The girl that won, was a bigger African American lady.  She was going to town, and rocking and locking and screaming “oh lord!”  It was hilarious.

The show was entertaining for both sexes, male and female, and all ages, young adult, to senior citizens.  It was high energy, choreographed dancing, mixed with entertaining moves, each unique by each dancer.  I loved the commentator Marcus the most.  He was the funniest and most entertaining.  And sexiest dancer goes to the one with the pretty hair, Donovan.  But I think the best entertainer was the fire fighter guy.  I think he was the best dancer, when it comes to movement and energy.   When he came out into the crowd and jumps on one of the tables, he spills water all over him, and it really got the crowd going.
