A mimed ladyboy show with a few touches of humour. Fantastic costumes and amazing girls. Up to 70 performers! Very good theatre. Safe and family friendly. Did I mention the girls were amazing?

Interesting show at Bangkok Asiatique

Calypso Cabaret Show Ticket
My wife and I wanted to see the lady-boy performance out of curiosity. Of course most of the attentions were on the female dressed performers. The show is family oriented with singing (lip-sync) and dancing numbers. Upon close examination, you can tell the more muscular arms and abdominal muscles of the female dressed performers that were different from traditional softer physique of female dancers. Overall, we had a good time watching this show.

Bangkok Calypso Cabaret Show Tour With Optional Dinner.
Our driver was awesome, pickup from hotel was prompt and he kept in contact with us until we were ready to leave. Dinner food left something to be desired, but the Monkey King show during dinner was very nice and unexpected. We had great seats during the calypso show, everything was very organized. The show was amazing, lights... sounds... definitely one not to miss.

What a fun show!!! This was actually 2 shows in 1 for us. We started with dinner and a cultural preshow which was lovely followed by the Calypso Cabaret which I could only compare to a cross between the follies, a comedy, and drag show. Ultimately, it was so fun, I would recommend this for anyone 21 and up - truly a lovely experience.

An evening at Bangkok’s Calypso Cabaret
The shuttle was prompt and courteous. We had about an hour before the show, which was enough time to have dinner. If we werent so tired we definately would have stayed in the area after the show. The show was good, the songs were a mix, from different countries.. good for the crowd

It was a great show. I really enjoyed the experience... until the end of the show when they indicated with a big sign free photos with the ladyboys. So we went naively went to take photos. Then the ladyboys hassled us for a tip, it grabbed my arm quite aggressively trying to force me to give them a tip. I only had 1000 baht sorry but I aint tipping you that much. Ran off. I could hear them yelling behind me. Be careful.

The show is a bit cheesy but still worth going to see. The dinner before the show was fantastic and we loved the evening.

Enjoyable evening. Show was fun and light hearted. Similar to drag shows back in the USA, so if you're not fond of musicals and lip syncing, then this is not going to be your thing, but for a fun evening of entertainment in a cool market area, go for it! I'd recommend skipping the dinner option, there's so much to eat right around the theater that it seems like a waste to eat there.

Great deal and night out. Quite a variety of different types and styles of music, I think there was Chinese and Korean and Indian. I was expecting all American/English music. The Beyonce impersonator was brilliant.

This is a fun evening out. We took the pre-dinner option - the food was good and included a separate traditional dancing display before the main show. The cabaret was a very entertaining blend of music and humour. Very glad we decided to go.
